Texas Motor Transportation Association (TMTA) today launched a new Web site designed to connect job seekers with employers in the trucking industry. This innovative resource, www.texastruckjobs.com, will function as a clearinghouse where professionals can post a resume, search job availabilities and learn about possible careers. The site also contains features allowing employers to post job opportunities, search a database of interested applicants and advertise their company.
Jobs in the trucking industry nationwide are in demand as 110,000 additional drivers will be needed by 2014 to meet the increase of freight. In Texas alone, the trucking industry provides 673,349 jobs or one out of every 14 jobs in the state. The average annual salary in the trucking profession is more than $47,000.
“Our goal is to empower Texans with knowledge about the trucking industry by providing a central location to search and post jobs exclusive to trucking,” said TMTA President John D. Esparza. “We are proud that Texas leads the nation in job creation and a low unemployment rate. To continue this success, we have created an online resource that can be navigated with ease to connect interested parties.”
All registration and advertising fees have been waived until January 1 to give employers and job seekers an opportunity to visit the site free of charge. Log on today at: www.texastruckjobs.com
