Word of mouth help is available in person, too, and has long been a trusted source of information. Don’t be shy to ask you fellow trucking friends and associates to refer you to a new position but don’t limit yourself to these names alone. You never know who has the information that you need.


Don’t forget that offline sources are also out there. Take advantage of newspaper listings and ads to find your next job. Many people don’t advertise online, but instead use the original sources, so you may even score jobs that you wouldn’t have found otherwise.
