What do you think about this article? Rate it using the stars above and let us know what you think in the comments below.
For the most part, water truck driving jobs involve transporting water to construction sites, petroleum-exploring sites, or borehole drilling sites. Water truck driving to these locations tends to be well paid but you will need to check with individual companies as to their employment criteria. It is also important to point out that not all water transportation jobs are equal, so your goal should not just be to get a job but to get the best paying job with the best benefits and conditions.

Obtaining work as a water truck driver involves much the same steps as getting any sort of truck driving position. Here are five tips for getting a job as a water truck driver:

1. Get a Vision of Your Ideal Job. Most people can get a low paying truck driving jobs that few people want to do, but that's the road to unhappiness where you get trapped. The purpose of your job search should not be just to get any job, but to get the job you really want. This requires you to actually think about your own needs and the needs of your family. How much money do you need to earn at a minimum? How much money would you like to earn? Do you have young children who need you at home on the weekends? Are you prepared to take a job that will keep you away from home a lot or do you need a job that is relatively local? What sort of company do you want to work for? Do you need to obtain further qualifications? Once you have answered these questions you will be able to picture the sort of job that would suit you.

2. Create a Strategy. Once you have decided on the sort of job you want and the sort of company you want to work for, you will be able to develop a strategy to achieve your goal. This can include plans to gain necessary certifications if you lack them and to get the experience employers are asking for by taking on short term, local truck driving jobs that prepare you for a water truck driving position. When you can meet the selection criteria for these positions, you can move onto specific job search strategies which can give you the best opportunities of getting these jobs.

3. Consider Long Term Career Goals. Is working as water truck driver for a company your ultimate goal or is it a step towards being an independent truck operator? If your ultimate goal is something other than being a water truck driver then it is important to choose your job with your ultimate destination in mind. What skills do you need for your future goal? What do you hope to achieve from water truck driving? Even if you have no other long term work goals, consider the future employment opportunities in the field you are entering as well as the stability of the company you are considering working for.

4. Don't Just Search for a Job, Compare and Research Different Opportunities. You can succeed in getting the job you wanted but still find yourself unsatisfied and unhappy. This happens when our job search is superficial. If we want to have a truly successful job search experience and land the sort of water truck driving job we can enjoy and be well compensated by, then we have to do our homework. Be aware of the different payment plans that are in operation in this area as well as the various benefits provided by different companies. Look at the average weekly incomes of people working in these water transportation jobs as well as their levels of job satisfaction. Companies with high turnover rates for their drivers have a problem and should be avoided no matter what their compensation plans. Look for a good employer who pays well and whose travel routes suit you and your family. Make sure you don't take a job with a company about to go into receivership or about to cut jobs to save money. You can find out a lot about an organization by conducting an Internet search.

5. Take Advantage of the Internet to Find Your Ideal Job. There are two main ways the Internet can help you find just the right water truck driving job. The first is via the websites of water truck companies you might like to work for. You can quickly see if they are advertising job vacancies on their own sites as well as check out the selection criteria for these jobs. Many companies allow you to apply online on their websites which makes the process quick and easy. You can also get an idea of company culture from the nature of their website. The second way to use the Internet to get a water-trucking job is via online job sites. Transport and logistics job sites are excellent places to find these types of water transportation jobs but you may also find them on the larger generalist sites. Most of these sites will allow you to search by location, category, and even salary. They also allow you to apply online. Searching by location allows you to find local trucking driving jobs.

By taking these simple steps you can prepare for, find, and obtain a water truck driver job that you will be happy with. Taking the time to do an effective job search can make the difference between finding a job you are happy with and just going through the motions of earning a living.
