ALBUQUERQUE—Are you an active-duty military truck driver or heavy equipment operator looking to put that truck-driving training to work in the private sector once you’ve fulfilled your military commitment?
Are you a military veteran with truck driving experience who’s also looking to put that experience toward a new job?
Then you’ll want to attend the 2015 New Mexico Trucking Association Job Fair for Military Veterans– a free trucking industry job fair May 1 for veterans, Guard/Reserve and transitioning active-duty members presented by the New Mexico Department of Veterans’ Services (NMDVA) and the New Mexico Trucking Association.
This first-ever job fair in New Mexico exclusively for veterans and military is 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Isleta Casino and Resort. It’s a great opportunity for veterans and transitioning military personnel with truck driving and other truck-industry job experience to meet with trucking industry officials and find a great-paying job.
Numerous truck/transport companies and other businesses needing truck drivers will be looking to hire veterans for jobs such as drivers (short and long-haul), dispatchers, mechanics, heavy equipment operators, warehouse operations, clerical, I-T and many other trucking industry jobs support jobs.
Representatives will also be there to assist those interested in the independent trucking industry.
Nationwide, trucking industry analysts say a rising demand for freight shipments is revealing a critical need for qualified truck drivers and other industry workers—and this demand should continue to increase well into the next decade.
According to New Mexico Trucking Association Managing Director Johnny Johnson, military veterans are highly coveted by the trucking industry to fill these vacancies.
“Trucking companies need people they can trust to load up, move the freight, and deliver it off on time,” Johnson said. “Veterans have a trustworthiness we admire—and require. We love the discipline, training, work ethic and real-world experience that veterans have gained through their military experience.”
