How to Leverage FreightCareers

 Tips to make FreightCareers more useful if you are looking for a position in transportation:

Check in daily. The FreightCareers email may come to you weekly, but jobs at different experience levels from around the country (and some international ones as well), are posted every single day. Don’t wait on us – your new career is waiting!

Make your profile searchable - Employers have the opportunity to search for qualified candidates! Boost your chances by making your profile visible to companies actively searching for their perfect candidate.

Use categories. Hiring managers can filter through potential applicants with visible profiles. Use the categories options to specify the sector/role you are most interested in.

Sign up for alerts. If you don’t want to check every day but also want to be the first to apply, this is your answer. Simply click the green “Create Alert” button on the right and select all the categories that interest you.


Employers can use the same profile tool to fill open roles within their companies and contact candidates directly.

FreightCareers was launched because of the volatile economic conditions and an uncertain freight climate. FreightWaves’ goal is to create a platform on which companies that have positions and freight industry professionals and entrepreneurs seeking employment can connect.

The FreightCareers job board is exclusive to the industry, offering positions at all levels in any location. If you have questions about finding or posting a job, contact

Happy job hunting!
