CARSON, California — Just as almost every aspect of the trucking industry is advancing with technology and remodeling itself to the increased efficiency of doing business on-line, technology has become the employers’ best weapon in the tough recruitment competition of today. Not only are more trucking companies aware of the need to establish their on-line image with impressive company websites of their own, they also realize that appealing to a niche demographic of truck drivers requires taking it a step further and linking themselves to the industry’s most established on-line job boards – where today’s generation of job seekers go.
