Resumes that win you an interview need to be written after a lot of planning and must be tailored to suit the needs of employer, for each position you apply for. Never leave resume writing for the last moment! Take your time to list your skills and then arrange them as per the job requirements listed by the target employer.

A resume for the position of a commercial truck driver should ideally begin with a profile or summary, listing some core competencies, followed by a detailed list of qualifications. It is also recommended to mention your accomplishments as well as responsibilities during professional experiences. In case you don’t have much work experience, it’s ok to mention some relevant volunteer work.
