If you want to apply for a delivery driver job, the first thing any hiring manager will ask for is your resume.
This is because they want to know what you’re all about: what you’ve done in your professional life, how you’ve done it, what your interests are and how you have woven them into the work you do.
You might be surprised to know that even movie stars have resumes!
You might ask, “what about very young people who have not had any job yet?”
Well, even if you’ve never worked as a delivery driver before, you will need to write a resume.
The hiring manager will want to know what you’ve done with your academic life, but more importantly, if you’ve done any internships or worked any summer jobs or even helped out a relative during your vacation.
In an entry level delivery driver resume (No Experience), you will need to be very specific.
Since you can’t regale the hiring manager with your enjoyable experience, you will have to look out for the following things:
Why are you such a great match for the delivery driver job?
What are your driving skills that can do something for the company?
Why the hiring manager pay you if you have no experience in hand?
Why are you better than the other candidates for the job, some of whom might have the experience you lack?
Take a look at the following entry level delivery driver resume sample.
