Take a closer look at the faces behind the wheels of our nation’s trucks and you may notice a growing change—women truckers! This welcome addition to our nation’s professional trucking workforce comes at the perfect time, as more drivers are retiring than are getting into truck cabs and a shortage of qualified drivers threatens the industry. AllTruckJobs.com helps shed some light on an exciting new career option for women.
Although the overall percentage of truckers who are women is still relatively low, this is a positive trend that will hopefully continue to grow in the coming years. And there’s every reason to believe it will, thanks to the proactive efforts of such organizations as Women in Trucking (WIT), and trailblazing women such as Caitlin Welby, CEO of RFX global trucking; in addition to breaking industry boundaries for women, they’re helping to change the perception that trucking is terrible for the environment—an essential consideration for many young job hunters entering the workforce.
If you’re a woman who’s considering her options for her next job, don’t let stuffy traditions and outdated modes of thinking limit your options. Explore the world of professional truck driving—it just might lead to your next great job!
