Company Driver In Training
My name is Shawn, 31 years old from just outside Pittsburgh, PA. I have decided on a career change and that change has led me here to learn more about the profession, learn from those who have done it for a long time, and talk to those who will be able to give me the guidance I need on this new journey.
I grew up with a father who was a trucker, and I know how hard this profession can be just for the families involved. I have a girlfriend of a little over a year and after a lot of talking we both agree this is something I need to do. I worked in transportation as a dispatcher/lumper for almost three years while in college, and when I did that I learned a lot about what goes in to being a trucker and the kind of mentality you have to have while out on the road for weeks at a time.
I am excited about this new experience and about all the learning experiences that I know I have ahead of me.
