Graduated my CDL training today! I was part of a mass lay-off the end of last November. This after 25 years at that particular job. 10 years in the same field prior to that. One thing that I found over those 35 years is that I was no longer qualified for the job that I had been doing in today's world. Technology passed me by. In my daily job search, one thing that I saw repeatably were CDL driver jobs. I did a little research and found that as a part of a mass lay-off I was entitled to grant money to further education. Long story short. I got the money and took the course setting a new career path. Not what I really wanted to do but I'll be back in business soon. The CDL demand is high and I'm ready to take advantage of it. I think I'm going to hold off on the tat though.
