You have just passed your C+E driving license and are wondering where to look for a job? Do you think that finding a well-paid job at the very beginning will not be easy? Remember that after a few months of work you will surely recoup the costs of driver training and examination. You just need to know where and how to look for a good job.
Make a good first impression
When looking for a job as a commercial truck driver, remember to prepare well for any recruitment meeting. You can find your first jobs on popular job portals. Just go to such popular portals as OLX.pl or Pracuj.pl and you will easily find something suitable for you. Remember, however, that it is necessary to indicate in what field you are looking for your dream profession, and also in what place in the country. This way you will only see the ads that are really interesting and worth your attention. It is also a good idea to advertise on city websites or groups for drivers on social networks.
Look for jobs in small courier and transport companies
In the beginning, you should be interested in working for smaller transport and courier companies. Through such jobs, you will be able to polish your truck driver skills. Additionally, usually such work does not involve constant travel, especially abroad. You can choose to work in a branch that only serves people near your place of residence. This is the best option for beginners and young people who want to get more training, increase their experience, and at the same time know that this is their first profession, so they need to test their abilities in such a difficult environment as driving a van or truck for several hours a day.
Try to make contacts that will make a difference in your professional development
Additionally, by choosing to work with such companies, you will have the chance to get in touch with interesting people who have been in the trucking industry for several years. This way, you reach out to many new people and potential employees. This way, you can get or find out that a bigger and more influential company is now looking for an employee for a commercial driver position. This way, you increase your chances of getting that full-time position.
Gain more authority
In your spare time, increase your entitlements. During this time, you may decide to go through a course that will allow you to drive trucks with two trailers. Additionally, there are courses that will allow you to transport specific loads and goods, as well as hazardous substances. The more certifications and courses you acquire, the more attractive an employee you will be to many trucking companies. Most of these courses can be subsidized by the company you work with or the unemployment office in the municipality where you live. In addition, the costs you incur will certainly pay you back after a few paychecks. The more experience and qualifications a professional driver has, the higher the salary he can count on.
Choose to work in a foreign market
If you are already more experienced and speak foreign languages, you can look for a job on the foreign market. Transport of goods from Poland to European countries is a very attractive order, for which you can receive even several thousand zlotys.
Do not rest on your laurels and try to make your employer consider you a valuable employee. Always try to look good during recruitment meetings and answer truthfully. The first impression is always the most important
