Body Technician Resume Samples

In an auto dealership store, the Body Technician joins hands with the auto-body repair team. In this role, the technician will repair collision, weather, and rectify other damages done to the vehicle’s body parts. A well-drafted Body Technician Resume mentions the following core duties and tasks – inspecting the vehicle for damages; filling cracks and depressions; performing cosmetic repairs; removing and replacing damaged parts with hand and power tools, and repairing body to customer or factory specifications.

As most of the job duties carried out revolve around the body itself, eligible technicians for this role are expected to have some experience working with overall systems of the vehicle and have a degree in automotive technology. Good manual dexterity and physical strength are also needed. Experience in auto repair, welding, and painting will be an additional advantage.
