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.

I am extremely pleased and impressed with Michelle Dumas from Distinctive Documents. Michelle and her team merged all of my background documents, old resumes, and completed forms into an outstanding resume. However, she did much more. While absorbing all of my background information, she summarized all of my experience into one word, intrapreneur. That's impressive! Over the years, I have worked with some of the best writers, marketing, sales, and practice executives around the world. Michelle is definitely the best professional writer, I have ever engaged.

Thank you for your services and the excellent resume you produced as a result. There is no question in my mind that this distinctive resume provided me with far more opportunities to talk to recruiters and principals than I would have had otherwise. More than once I heard recruiters say "I pick out two resumes from over 1000 internet responses and you were one of them."

Bottom line I achieved exactly what I was looking for: in terms of position, location, and income AND I had choices in terms of multiple offers. It all started by getting someone to notice my resume in with a thousand others.

I just wanted to thank you very much for your help. The resume is great and I can't believe that I did not do it sooner. It is a night and day difference between my old and new resume. After I received the resume the response went from 1 in 10 [originally] to 9 in 10 [with new resume]. I have accepted a position with a large insurance company less than 4 wks after I received the resume. Again, thank you very much and I am sure that I will be back to update my resume.
