Sample Resume for Blue Collar Jobs

Purpose: Example of a resume written for an automotive technician/mechanic

Quick Resume Writing Tip: This sample resume illustrates a technique that you can use when your background includes many positions in which you did the same or a similar type of work. Rather than listing out the details of each position for this automotive technician / mechanic, in this example resume we used a twist on the functional format and listed his major qualifications and achievements in a summary section that immediately followed the profile. The work chronology was listed just below the summary, followed by the education section. This strategy and format, known as a quasi-functional format, was remarkably effective. Although this person was moving to a new location where he didn’t know anyone, within weeks he had multiple job offers.

It was hard to accept change when I'm so invested into the version I had prepared myself. Without question the change has been a benefit and I'm proud to stand on it....The new version is much clearer, more organized and significantly easier to read. I have great confidence it displays my abilities best. I hope to be back in a three or four years when I have more experience under my belt and I'm ready to move to another position.

I wanted to let you know I have accepted a new position as an account manager with Xxxxx. I definitely believe the custom written resume and cover letter made the difference. It got me the interview, actually multiple interviews, and the position I was offered matched my work history and background extremely well. I am very excited to start my new job and feel very thankful to have such a wonderful opportunity in these challenging times. Thanks again to you and your team. I will definitely recommend your services to my friends and family.

I've been so busy with my job hunt, I haven't been able to write you! I've gotten responses from many recruiters and most of them mention how great my resume is. Eli Lilly is supposedly very interested in me right now, but I haven't heard from them. I had a rep recommend me for a position with them. Otherwise, I'm interviewing with a biotech company for a great sales position and I'm going through the process with Abbott, Merck and AstraZeneca. I actually received the call out of the blue from a district manager with AstraZeneca last night. He was looking over my resume because he just had a position open up in his territory and he wanted to talk with me. We connected this afternoon and he invited me to interview with them on Friday! ... I've had a lot of people ask me about my resume and I belong to many bulletin boards and discussion groups for pharmaceutical sales wanna-be's. Many people ask for resume advice and tips. I always point them your way! I'm so glad I picked you. I just can't say enough about what a wonderful job you did on both my resume and cover letter. My husband is definitely going to ask you to do his resume once I get a position. I hope some of these other people take my advice as well, it will make their job search so much easier!! Thanks again, really. I'll let you know when I land my position!

...then a couple of months later, L.C. wrote again to say:

I just wanted to send you a quick update. Everyone was definitely impressed and dazzled by the resume you created for me! Since I started my search, I've seen dozens of other sales resumes and yours left them ALL in the dust! Some of them were even professionally designed and I really can't believe how little they got for their money. Although I did receive offers from pharma companies, I finally accepted an offer from a medical device company! I'm now a medical sales consultant and I LOVE my new career! I want to thank you again for helping me get my foot in the door with landing interviews and for all of the stress you took off my shoulders by taking my resume on. Now that I have my dream job, my husband will definitely be contact you SOON!

My background is a particularly difficult one to handle in a resume both due to my having multi-functional and multi-industry experience, and my having had 9 positions in 25 years, none of which could be eliminated due to my having started my career at the mid-management level after graduate school. She can certainly do anyone's resume professionally and expertly, since she was able to write mine. Her questionnaire took a great deal of time but was critical in enabling her to do her work well. Perhaps the greatest compliment I can pay her is that before I hired her, I had just had my resume rewritten by another writer who has written a book on executive resumes, and that resume was not nearly the quality of her work, with an executive recruiter I know letting me know that her version was "MUCH better". My only reluctance in providing this testimonial is that it will encourage others to utilize her services, decreasing my "edge" over other candidates by having a resume prepared by Ms. Dumas.

M.M., New York

Hi Michelle, Just wanted to update you that I have accepted a position with a consulting company that focuses on sales force effectiveness. The resume and cover letter clearly caught attention with the managing partners. I called them and the one I talked to had a call to me on his 'to do' list...Thank you for the discussions and for the work you did on preparing me for the employment market. I really needed the expert advice and work on my resume since it had been so long since I even tried looking. Best of luck to you for a successful 2012.
