    Where to start: take out skills/objective. They're not working. in terms of work history, WAYY too much! People will know that you collected fares being a taxi driver. It's obvious. Your work history should focus more on what you accomplished, and does not need to be a list of every single detail of your job. Keep it to about 3-4 bullet points.

    A few thoughts on this . . . First, definitely replace the objective with a summary, a line or 2 that describes your general capabilities and qualities. The focus of the resume needs to be changed from activities to results. When writing a resume you want to show people what you've accomplished; listing your activities really makes it just a job description and won't distinguish you from other applicants. Some possible examples . . . Performed or obtained all necessary preventive maintainence, insuring that the vehicle met or exceeded all performance and safety standards while maintaining maximum availability. Established a track record of timely, safe and efficient delivery all passengers regardless of route or final destination. Consistently earned above-average gratuities for exemplary customer service. . . . . You get the idea.

    Suggestions, Pt 1 Skills: ·I am self motivated and a hard worker ·I work well in fast-paced, high pressure situations ·I go above and beyond the of duty ·I work well in a team Delete all this. Who isn't? Or at least, who isn't going to say so? ·Proficient with MS Word, MS Excel, MS Access, PowerPoint Presentation, and operations of 10 key and multi-line phone systems. The LAST section of your resume should be Skills: Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint Presentation, and operations of 10 key and multi-line phone systems. You don't need to add MS since everyone knows they are MS packages. Isn't this line redundant to your last point under 'Proficient'?·Familiar with 10 key. Objective: ·To find employment in a field that will challenge me on a daily basis, and will allow me to use my intellect and reasoning abilities in a way that will keep me stimulated. Delete objective entirely! It is the most generic cookie cutter part of any resume. It can be addressed by discussing the positon in the ad, or in the interview.Professional Experience: 05/03-01/08 Dave’s Taxi Service, Owner/Operator, Self-EmployedWhen referring to a job you don't do anymore, make ALL your verbs past tense. You don't collect, but you collectED, etc.This is WAY too long! Cut the driver roles down to one or two lines, and the behind the scenes roles to another one or two. ·Collect fares or vouchers from passengers; and make change and/or issue receipts, as necessary. Obvious for a car service, isn't it? ·Communicate with dispatchers by telephone in order to exchange information and receive requests for passenger service. ·Determine fares based on trip distances and times, using taximeters and fee schedules, and announce fares to passengers. ·Drive taxicabs, in order to transport passengers. Obvious for a car service, isn't it? ·Follow regulations governing taxi operation and ensure that passengers follow safety regulations. ·Perform routine vehicle maintenance;This line is complete enough here. Any driver knows what routine maintenance is. such as regulating tire pressure and adding gasoline, oil, and water.

    Side Note About Objective It should also be noted that the 'Objective' is essentially how you're conveying, very briefly, how/why you plan to benefit you AND the company. Your current objective only addresses your needs - why would a company care about what you want? (sad, but true!) Make sure to meet THEIR needs in every aspect of what your resume conveys. The whole point of a resume is to point out how much more valuable you will be compared to everyone else, and you can't expect a hiring manager to just know how good of an employee you are just because you collected fares and know how to use MS Word. I would go with something more along the lines of: Objective: To utilize my intellect, reasoning, and motivation to add value and efficiency to a company with whom I can establish a career. That example is not a great one (I'm expecting you to come up with your own!), but it's usually a good idea to tailor your resume to a specific job (as the parent suggested), but you need a decent starting point either way. For example, if I was applying to a job where quality and precision were more important than efficiency, I might adjust the above to say: Objective: To apply my intellect and attention to detail in a consistent manner that will improve product quality while maintaining throughput and establish a potential for growth within the company. Make sure you indicate what you want, but offer them some incentive to give it to you! Just wanted to point that out! (By the way, I'm just a guy - take what I say with a grain of salt!)

    2 Suggestions Unless you are applying for a taxi job, you should simplify that whole section to something like "work and maintain a taxi".

    Apply at my cab company! This resume shows a person who does one thing well, and that is drive a cab. I agree with the previous posters -- listing that you can turn a meter on and off is something any 5 year old can learn. Show what valuable skills you've learned by being a successful cabbie, which is, after all, a difficult demanding profession, and frequently thankless. As a recruiter, I am looking for a well-rounded person who's worked more than one kind of job, or someone who can see the bigger picture. When I list cab driving on my resume, it says I am safety and detail oriented, with an emphasis on maximum customer satisfaction and risk management. Cab driving taught me essential sales and communication skills: establishing instant rapport with anyone, upselling the return trip as I drop customers off, listening to clients and meeting their individual needs, developing and maintaining a loyal personal clientele. An employer who can see that I have relationships with customers so strong they prefer my service to anyone else's would know I can recreate that for their customers too. Your experience with fleet utilization should be written show off your management skills. "I maximized efficiency of logistics to cut fuel costs by 20%" or something like that. I can't tell what kind of job you're looking for, since it all sounds very general, but if you want to get out of a cab job, you're going to have to have something more polished to offer a company. The stereotype and stigma of cabdriving means you're going to have to work twice as hard to shine for a traditional employer. Cut the shaggy hair and dress up nice. If all you want to do is drive another cab, you don't need a resume at all. You need to apply at my cab company in Tucson. Good luck!
