truck school not being any help finding work

Fellow new truckers

If you have graduated from a truck school and haven't had any luck getting work, because everytime I call these companies, they tell me ,that I need 6 months, to a year of otr driving. I ask them how do get otr experience of a year or whatever if their not willing to give a new guy or gal a chance. If you've had luck please let me know what you did and who got work with ok.

How did your orientation with Werner go? They called me, should I setup to go to orientation to drive for them? Thanks,

Only certain companies hire student drivers so your options are limited. Swift, Werner, CR England and Covenant are just a few off the top of my head

Any one have any experience with Covenant? Good or bad talking with them.
