Will my employment history as a truck driver matter when I start looking for a job as a software developer?

*I am taking classes online. Here is my history: 12/03-2/05 US Army Deployed in Iraq Heavy Equipment Operator 4/05-4/06 OWBF (a furniture place) Local Box Truck Driver 8/06-12/06 Werner Enterprises OTR Truck Driver 12/06-Present JB Hunt OTR Truck Driver I would really like to start working for a local company so that I can be home more often but I am concerned that when I finish my Bachelors degree next summer that no one will want to hire me because I have switched jobs too many times. What do you think about this? Will moving to one final truck driving job make a difference in whether or not I can get hired as a software developer?
