EXAMPLE OF A “BLUE COLLAR” RESUME WRITTEN FOR AN AUTOMOTIVE TECHNICIAN
Blue Collar Resume Project Brief
This example blue collar resume written for an automotive technician 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.
