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.
