Re: Operator / Driver Positions
Dear Human Resources Manager,
Put simply, I love to drive-and with more than 600,000 safe miles of large-vehicle driving experience, a conscientious and safety-minded driving style, and years of experience providing the highest levels of customer service, I believe I can offer you both the skills and experience you are looking for in a PTC Operator/Driver.
I have been fortunate. My unique career has afforded me the opportunity to drive and transport loads throughout Canada and the U.S. in a variety of vehicles, including 18- and 30-wheel trailers. While most of my positions were in operations and customer service, these frequent driving opportunities represented an aspect of the job that I thoroughly enjoyed, and as I now find myself seeking a career change, I am finally in the position to pursue a long-standing desire to drive for a living.
I encourage you to review the attached résumé detailing my qualifications, highlights of which include
- Extensive large-vehicle driving experience-CDL License, Class A with Trailer and Air Brake endorsements
- Outstanding customer service skills from 11+ years in sales and account management- personable, friendly, and professional
- Able to work flexible work schedules and nonstandard shifts
I would welcome the opportunity to meet and discuss in person the value I could add as a PTC Operator/ Driver. I am very enthusiastic about this opportunity and am confident that I have the right combination of skills and experience to exceed your expectations.
Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
