Job Listing Site Launched for Military Driver Pilot Program
(November 6, 2019)
- The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has created a website
to help people between the ages of 18 and 20, who possess the U.S. military equivalent of a commercial driver license, find trucking jobs.
The website presents information about trucking companies that are approved to hire drivers as part of FMCSA’s Under 21 Military Driver Pilot Program. Launched in June, the program is meant to help young veterans and reservists find jobs in the trucking industry. The online resource, called Under 21 Military Drivers Job Opportunities, is meant to help young people participating in the pilot program.
The entries on FMCSA’s new online resource contain information about the approved motor carriers, such as where they operate, what kind of freight they specialize in and a point of contact for interested participants.
