We’ll help you find the right job
Training students to become professional drivers is only half of our school’s goal; the other half is to do everything possible to help each graduate become gainfully employed. It does not make much sense to give you the training if you cannot put it to good use.
The first step in doing this is teaching you the skills needed to apply and interview for a position. We teach students effective communication skills, which include proper body language, attitude, self-confidence, and overall effectiveness. We also teach students how to fill out a job application properly.
We work with many trucking companies for job placement. We also offer lifetime job placement assistance.
Elite Truck School will furnish each prospective student a copy of our job placement ratio.
Elite Truck School is proud to offer a short, four-week CDL training program for aspiring commercial drivers in the Hillsboro area. After you complete the program and earn your CDL, our truck school will gladly help you find a lucrative position in the transportation industry. With the driver’s shortage, most all of our students have secured employment before they graduate. Many of the company recruiters that visit our school are now hiring for local positions, as well as regional.
Great jobs for licensed drivers
CDL training can be your ticket to a wide variety of great jobs. Here are a few you might consider:
- Local delivery driver: CDL holders as young as 18 can get a good job delivering goods in Hillsboro, Gresham, Tigard, and elsewhere in the Portland area. The local delivery of food, furniture, and other products is important to the economy.
- Long-haul driver: Every year, millions of trucks deliver products from the Portland area to elsewhere in the country. If you earn a CDL, you can get paid to drive across America.
Transportation industry job outlook
These days, transportation companies can’t hire truck drivers fast enough. It’s true: Baby boomers, the country’s largest generation, are reaching retirement age, leaving a significant void that younger drivers need to fill. According to one estimate, the U.S. will need 330,000 new drivers by 2020. Also, the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that there will be an 11% increase in truck driver employment from 2012 to 2022.
Many people are becoming truck drivers because there’s a plenty of room for upward mobility. A driver can start out as an employee and work his way up to an owner/operator or administrator. Surely, your prospects for employment with a CDL are much higher than they might be if you choose another field of study.
