It is wise to send your resume early in the race season. Most
companies have race programs budgeted shortly after the last
race of a season. It is first-come-first-serve to get in the
program. Depending on the type of racing, we have accepted resumes
as late as midseason. After we receive your resume it typically
takes 2-3 weeks before you hear from us. If you are accepted
you will receive a contract, along with a letter explaining the
benefits and what is to be required of you.
A RESUME FOR TEAM APE
Please keep your resume's brief, yet thorough. We are concerned
as to how you are going to represent APE in a positive way. Therefore
we want to know what type of racing you do, how long you've been
racing, the highlights of your last racing season (if any), and
what you are going to do this year. Pictures should always accompany
Here are some questions that we will be thinking as we read your
* Does the team/racer convey family oriented sports?
* Will there be plenty of exposure to spectators?
* Will this racer/team represent our company in a way that reflects
the high standards we are known for?
the following information in your resume:
Team Name (if applicable)
City, State, Zip
your name, where you live, marital status, children. Be personable.
Allow us to get to know you to some extent.
*Describe your race vehicle. What year, make, size of
the engine. Perhaps you will want to say something about the
tow vehicle or the race rig.
*Tell your racing history. When did you actually start
racing? ( Not fair to mention street racing. You wouldn't do
that anyway... would you?)
there a special influence, person or incident that got you started?
when and what you did the last season you raced (if applicable).
are your goals for this year?
This section is the most essential part of your resume. Be explicit.
You don't need to give places, unless it is pertinent to your
selling points, but include how many races you intend to participate
in and their locations for the entire racing season. If you will
be displaying your vehicle in a show, at a dealership, or the
local mall be sure to include the information. Even if you are
only going to take the vehicle to your son's show-and-tell at
school, mention it. The more places your vehicle will be, the
more people will see it and that will make your resume more appealing
to a sponsor.
additional information By the time
you are finished with this part of your resume, we should be
able to see a racer who understands your role in the sponsored
program, and a racer who is willing to promote our business.
with an explanation of how you are going to promote APE. We will
be making the right decision when we choose you because you are
going to: Promote our company every time you show up at the racetrack.
How? You will display our banner. You will have stickers on your
bike and patches on your leathers. You'll even have patches on
the team shirts. When you are in the winner's circle you will
thank the sponsor for all his help.
