Taking Your Transportation Resume Seriously
PDF Version
When writing a resume for a position in the transportation industry, your experience will be your strongest suit, if presented effectively. There usually aren't any educational requirements, but if you have a degree or relevant training, it never hurts to include them in your resume. The most important thing is to highlight relevant skills and experiences that will help your potential employer to paint a clearer picture of how you will benefit his company. By taking your transportation resume seriously, you greatly increase your chances of landing the position you desire.

Taking Your Transportation Resume Seriously
When applying for a position in the transportation industry, previous experience will give you a boost above the competition.
There are several things to think about as you are writing a resume for the transportation industry. First of all, remember that the transportation industry is a fast moving industry full of competition and jobs. This means that if you truly want to have a job within the transportation industry, chances are good because there are plenty of opportunities available. However, there will also be competition for these jobs, so if you want the best possible position you can get, you are going to need to work hard to create a memorable and impressive resume.

To start with, make sure you have a clear idea of what the job you’re applying for consists of and what skills and qualifications will need to be highlighted. It may be hard to do this because you’ve probably done a lot of things in your life, but not all of them are going to relate to the transportation job you seek. Therefore, the best way to start creating your transportation resume is to create a master resume with a list of absolutely every skill, accomplishment, and qualification you possess. Don’t worry about how long it is; this is just your chance to brainstorm everything you can think of that could possibly go in a resume. This way, you can customize a resume for any open job position by picking and choosing the information that applies specifically to that job. Read the job description for the transportation position you want carefully and find which skills you possess that match what the potential employer is looking for.

Next, you want to make sure you effectively describe key experiences that are relevant to the position you’re applying for. Remember, your resume is your chance to market yourself to potential employers. Be sure to discuss why your experiences make you the most qualified candidate for the job. Do this by briefly describing your former positions, especially those relevant to the field of transportation, then using bullet points to list specific accomplishments you’ve achieved through your knowledge and skills. It is important to be able to do this because it will help your potential employer to see how you can benefit their company and why you are the best person for the job.

You also want to add in your education. In transportation jobs, experience usually carries more weight than education. However, any education you possess will work for your benefit and should be included. If you have had any special training that may come in handy in transportation, be sure to mention them as well.

Basically, any experiences you’ve had that will help your potential employer to paint a clearer picture of what you can bring to his company should be included with the appropriate skills highlighted. Although it shouldn’t be hard to secure a job in the transportation industry, if you want to obtain the best job you can get, then it is advisable to write a serious resume and do your best to make sure it portrays who you are to your potential employer. Spending a little bit more effort and time on your resume will provide worthwhile results.
