Mechanic CV

Mechanics is a completely practical field. Employers will always prefer to recruit individuals with experience. If you do not have formal work experience you should include internship periods or related part time experience. Inclusion of projects and other work experience demonstrates to the employer your ability to work as an individual and with minimal supervision.

Specialization in specific areas of mechanics or specific knowledge and experience is an added advantage e.g. specific experience in engine repair of certain car models and cars from specific car manufacturers, specialization in body work, interiors and electronics. Specialization is especially important when applying to a large firm such e.g. a car manufacturing firm or servicing garage. Shown below is CV sample for a mechanic. This is meant to help you understand the major things that recruiters look out for when hiring. All the best in your job search.
