Apr 30, 2008 12:38 PM
The American Trucking Associations (ATA) has signed a recruiting partnership agreement with the Army Reserve that will provide experienced truck drivers for the military and provide careers to truck drivers leaving the military, according to ATA information.
The two organizations will focus efforts on recruiting commercial vehicle drivers into the Army Reserve, and recruiting members of the Army Reserve and those transitioning from active duty to the Army Reserve into careers in the trucking industry.
The agreement commits ATA and the Army Reserve to creating a detailed pact to carry out the recruiting partnership. Working together, the trucking industry and the Army Reserve will make it possible for active duty soldiers transitioning out of the military and those currently serving in the Army Reserve to find a lucrative career that combines a high-paying civilian career with the benefits of continued military service in the Army Reserve.
The Army Reserve is working with business leaders and Chambers of Commerce across the country under its Employer Partnership initiative. It establishes a process of cross credentialing and reciprocity of licensing whereby employers and the Army Reserve may secure and share the talents of prequalified, screened, trained, and educated professionals.
