If you're looking to get a job driving a truck, then you will have found out by now that you need to get a special drivers license (a commercial drivers license, aka a CDL). While you can study up on prep materials at home and watch endless YouTube videos, there is really no way to prepare for the test without taking a a class at a school. This is because you need hands on training when it comes to driving a truck, and that's not something you can do on your own.
If you have just gotten a new car but you didn't trade in your old one and it still has plenty of good years on it, you may wonder what you can do with it. If you don't have a driver for it, the car may just sit around, costing you money. However, there are things that you can do with that car that won't cost you money and that will let that car still be useful.
If you're a resident of California and are interested in a career path that won't require you to move out of state to find a job (but with the flexibility to put down roots in any part of the country), you may want to consider becoming an electrician. With the number of jobs in this field poised to grow faster than average -- nearly 20 percent between 2012 and 2022 -- you'll be able to enjoy a career that pays a relatively high wage for the training required while ensuring you won't enter a depressed job market.
