#1 You must have patience for every aspect of a driving career, from dealing with the vehicle itself people on the road, to dealing with different companies as well as potential new customers/employers. #2 if you make more money than you need, save that money because the time is coming when you won't make any. A career in transportation can be very fickle #feastorfamine. #3 You need the ability to take the good with the bad. Some transportation jobs will be great, others, not so great. Just hang in there you're going to be fine

METHOD #1. SQUEEZE OUT THE TOWEL. [IBYC]

Must Read Without Failure!

Remember, I had no desire to study STAT UN1101. Now, I could kiss my Professor on his forehead for encouraging me to take his class.

Statistically, a percentage of people will fall-short in 2024, for various reasons.

Don't let this happen to YOU!

If you aspire to win in life learn, how to apply methods?

METHOD #1. "Squeeze out the towel." All those old bad habits have to go, so everything else great can fall-in-place.

I Believe You Can...!

From my 22 years applying and recruiting maybe I can help some by highlighting a few very common error lines to avoid in resumes, others very widely used but that dont add any value and are all followed by some positive impact lines to replace with.

❌1 “I'm absolutely convinced I’m a great fit for the role” or any of its variants: “ I” 'm convinced I can do this” “I’m convinced I have the right skills for this job”

⏩ Well good for you you are convinced you can do it! Thing is you have to convince the recruiter**** Realize this type of line is only a statement to yourself, you are not demonstrating anything to the recruiter👍

✅As I always like to stress, the #1 element you must have in any resume or cover letter is SHOWCASING YOUR BEST PAST ACHIEVEMENTS PROPER TO THE ROLE. Do not label yourself, only prove your worth. At the most, after demonstrating your skills, a great transition line could be:

  • “I hope that through these concrete examples, you can sense my optimal fit for this role. In this case, I’d love to have the opportunity to further expand on the value I can bring to your team through an interview with you”

2 “Please give me a chance, I can do this!”, “I’ll do anything!” Any supplicatory lines are a BIg no-no.

⏩Companies look for the best candidate and they need proof of their skills to determine that not someone that only promises he can do it.. It also shows desperation. if you will do anything for a paycheck, its very likely you will not like it and leave in a few months and the company will have to spend more time and money finding someone else.

3 Self adjectivization/labeling: I’m a serious, effective, analytical, self-starter, reliable, bla bla customer service agent, sales person etc

⏩Similar to error#1, the point is to convince your recruiter and self labeling doesnt prove ANYTHING. Try avoiding it altogether but if you feel the need to mention something about your skill set ( often in the first paragraph of a CL) be sure to follow through with a, DEMONSTRATION of your characteristics through, again and again, CONCRETE PAST ACHIEVEMENTS. Else its just cheap talk!!

✅Great junction lines between all the wonderful things you say about yourself and the achievement examples:

  • “Now, I know we can all say wonderful things about ourselves so allow me to demonstrate to you my skill set through some of my most recent achievements”
  • .“I‘m confident you will see these qualities through the following concrete examples:”

In these lines, you are acknowledging its up to the recruiter to see the value you claim to have. You put the burden of proof on yourself while still reflecting a high confidence level.

4 Whenever asked about a task: I have no idea - I’ve never done that, I dont know about it.

⏩Nothing worse than not knowing… Many others do know so you will be discarded.

✅ To keep your chances in these situations rather say that you havent done that specific task but you have done something similar and provide your best past performance in that related field Show you have some understanding of the subject.

5 “I’m passionate about”

⏩ Nothing wrong with it in itself but my friends, it is so used it becomes almost hollow of meaning and the challenge of any application is to STAND OUT. Imagine your recruiter reading 80 times “I’m passionate about…” and all of a sudden your application saying something different. It will catch the attention very favorably.

✅ So use synonyms or embrace other concepts like:

“ I feel accomplished when..”, “I feel wholesome when.. ” “My drill in life is..”, I use “ My reason for being in life is”

There are many more but for most of us the reading span only goes that far😉

Hope this helps some out there!

I'm telling you the truth...(Must Read Without Failure.)

In life, we fall-short over, over and over again. However, we can make things right once we try.

7 - KEYS To Create Your Change:

Key #1. Thinking Establishment.

"Believe in yourself and have faith in your abilities! Demonstrate a can do it attitude. Think with an aire of reasonableness, willingness and confidence."

Then, success and happiness will greet you with open arms when you least expect.

I Believe You Can...!

My #1 Recruiter Suggestion to Improve your Resume - With Concrete Examples👍✌

. Everything is better with music: https://youtu.be/mpW3C_k0WMY?si=VTy2kbYFqG-fK6EB

I don't pretend to be a Resume Expert, but I worked over 22 years as a cs agent, team manager, and COO with much recruiting and keeping things simple, I’ll say, if there is 1 thing you have to have in your application, this is:

SHOWCASE YOUR BEST ACHIEVEMENTS

After a recruiter checks that an application is a general fit ( the application is for the right job post/role) the 1 thing he needs to see is who can bring the best value to the team.

And to prove YOU are the one, you need to explain your best achievements, not just say them This means, more or less:

  • What is it you did
  • Contextualize the issue- where your solution later came in
  • Explain how you did it
  • Show the RESULTS, what did it improve, Bring Numbers/Data to back it up

As obvious as this may seem, I’m amazed to see the number of candidates that don't do it. Instead, they make these 2 mistakes:

  • They simply state their past roles, as if the only concern was to show a general fit…
  • Or, at best, many only mention some of their best achievements but THEY DON'T EXPLAIN them.

Let’s see this through some examples:

-Only stating past roles doesn't need any examples. Quickest landing to the Bin:)

-Only mentioning the best achievements without explaining them:

❌ Ex 1 “ Thanks to my friendliness and proactiveness, I contributed to a sales increase of 50% during the course of my work period” ⏩Even if the candidate attaches a graph showing such sales increase, nothing proves it was due to his proactiveness or friendliness. Cheap talk. The candidate needs to explain a concrete action he took that increased sales.

❌ Ex 2 “During my 6 years at X company I succeeded in maintaining a customer feedback score of 4.5” ( If I had been given $1 for every time I read this…) ⏩ For this kind of measurable achievement, data proof is indispensable. Without it, again, it’s cheap talk.

❌ Ex 3 “I implemented a new system through which the company improved shipping delays during the pandemic. This resulted in better customer retention at a time when customers were very upset due to the many issues raised by Covid. ⏩ A little better than the previous 2 examples but still no explanation of what exactly was done to reach the alleged results.

Some examples of achievements duly explained.

✅ Ex 1 I drove UK-bound sales back to pre-pandemic levels after a steep drop resulting from Covid’s shipping costs and products getting stuck at UK Customs after Brexit

At the peak of the pandemic, the UK had withdrawn from the European Union, entailing many legal issues and uncertainty as to the applicable norms for exports and imports. UK customs kept the company’s merchandise for weeks causing a steep drop in UK and even Europe bound sales.

After 3 months of unfruitful solutions, I turned around the situation by suggesting and actively participating in:

  • Obtaining a UK IMPORT LICENSE. The new legal status allowed our products to be handled with just a 4 day maximum delay.

  • I canceled all traditional and slow shipping options available until then and implemented 2 new solutions: A UK shipping company economy option through which we paid for any applicable customs duties and later billed our customers in comfortable installments and a DHL Express option whereby the customers directly paid for customs fees in exchange of a 30% discount on their next orders plus VIP cust service handling.

  • Thanks to these measures plus a thorough explanation of the situation to our customers, our sales to the UK went back to pre-pandemic levels within 3 weeks of implementation. Our customer feedback also reflected recognition of our very solution-driven focus. See graph from our Shopify store and a few examples of our customer feedback from inner communication software: DATA Links

✅ Ex 2 I Opened New Markets in Latam, Africa, and Asia

The company’s products being very premium and expensive, these markets were almost completely left out. There was no affordable shipping option to those regions and many interested people from those countries complained.

  • I solved this by developing a partnership with the traveler app, Grabr that connects travelers with locals to bring them products from developed countries. With the IT team, I added the feature as an API within our Community page and a matching scheme for our customers or non-customers travelers and interested buyers from those regions. I also presented this as a social activity.

  • The results in sales to Latam as an example, went from under $200 per month until implementation in July 2018 to $2700 4 months later. While the figures remain slim in the total market share, the move allowed the company to increase its social responsibility image. This reflected through customer reviews and known retail magazines such as The Independent Retailer and The Boss Magazine. See Shopify sales page for Latam sales, a few reviews from company’s website, and media clips: DATA

I hope you can sense that the only way for a recruiter to make a reasonable choice is by comparing different values and the N1 value is what you accomplished in the past that can be useful in the new role.If you only state your achievements without explaining how you attained them your recruiter will not see your value.

To showcase Data backing up your achievement claims, it pays to keep them as you come up with them along the way. It’s VERY IMPACTFUL.

There are other very important things to include in a successful application but nothing is worth much without demonstrating your best accomplishments.

Hope this helps some out there👍👍
