Re: Truck Driver, Advertised on Monster

Dear Mr. Crowley:

With a more than 7-year track record of exemplary-rated performance as a fuel transporter and gas hauler for the #1 c-store gas station chain in the Southwest, I believe I would make a great addition to your truck driver team.

My qualifications include:

  • Interstate Class A CDL (State of Texas) with tank vehicle and hazardous materials endorsements
  • TWIC card
  • Safe driving record (zero accidents, tickets or driving violations of any kind)
  • Near-perfect attendance record (only 3 sick days taken in 7 years)
  • Clear background check and drug screen
  • Excellent physical health (exercise regularly and don’t smoke or drink)
  • Solid foundation in tractor-trailer safety, maintenance and basic repairs
  • Graduation from one of the top-rated truck driving schools in the state

These credentials are reinforced by my commitment to going “above and beyond” for my customers and employer and proven history of on-time driving performance.

Please call me at (555) 555-5555 or email to arrange an interview. Thank you for your time.

Dear Mr Rumbel

Re: Dump Truck Operator position, Ref: 123AB

Please accept my application for the position of dump truck operator which was advertised in the Daily Sun on 10 April 2010.

I am an efficient and professional dump truck operator with over three years experience working in mining and construction environments. I have extensive experience in driving CAT 777 trucks as well as Komatsu 785 and CAT 785 trucks.

For the past year I have been working as a freelance dump truck operator, mainly in mining operations as well as municipal work around and outside of Perth, while I completed my Statement of Attaining in Dump Truck Operations. Working as a freelance operator pushed me to be self-driven and motivated to set my own targets and strive to reach them.

Prior to this I was a dump truck driver with Monster Trucking Services, a large company that provided trucks and other machinery for mining operations, in particular the gold mining environment. Here I was able to hone my driving skills and gain an understanding of the mining environment.

While working I maintain a focus on safety at all times as well as meeting the production targets. My referees can vouch for my consistently strong production rates.

Working in a company setting as well as individually has given me the skills to communicate effectively – verbally or in writing – in any situation. I have a HR driver’s licence and a passionate and positive outlook that I bring to any project or situation.

My resume is attached and I look forward to discussing the position with you further.

Kind Regards
