This of course is smart to consider the realities of the career.

If however you are single, young and love to travel  trucking might be something you want to look into.  Especially if you have no plans of getting additional education.  You other options might not be as rewarding as becoming a trucker.

A new driver can get anywhere from $25,000 to $40,000 now depending on what trucking company brings him in.  All this for less than 2 months training.  The most important thing though is to figure out if he is compatible for the trucking lifestyle or not.  Check this article to get a better idea of what truckers face.
