Spent some time doing DoorDash, Uber Eats, or another kind of gig work? It’s not just a quick source of extra cash — it can also look good on your resume.

Whether you’re hoping to turn your side gig into full-time income, looking to transition into a completely different field, or just wondering if it’s worthwhile listing part-time work on your resume, we have all your questions answered.

Let’s start with a quick step by step guide that covers how to put DoorDash (or similar gig work) on your resume before diving into more detailed tips and examples.

How to put DoorDash on a resume

  1. First, consider whether DoorDash really needs to go on your resume — basically, if the experience is relevant or if you can use it to show transferable skills (more on that below).
  2. Next, consider what parts of the job are the most relevant to the roles you’re applying for.
  3. Scan the job description to get a feel for what they’re looking for or use our skills and keywords finder to generate a list of must-have skills.
  4. Make a list of anything you’ve done that’s similar — for example, if a job involves handling time-sensitive tasks, mention how you reduced average delivery times or regularly picked up more orders than expected.
  5. Include numbers wherever possible, e.g. how many orders you averaged per night.
  6. If you worked multiple side jobs, consolidate your experience under a single heading and list bullet points for each job separately underneath.
  7. Alternatively, skip the bullet points altogether — if you’re trying to save space on your resume, simply list the company, job title, and dates without the accomplishments.
  8. Once you’re happy with your first draft, run your resume through a free resume scanner to pick up on anything you may have missed or suggest some quick fixes.

How to make DoorDash sound good on a resume

List DoorDash on your resume … or don’t

Can you put DoorDash on your resume? Of course! Should you? Well, that’s a little harder to answer.

There are plenty of benefits to listing DoorDash, Uber Eats, and other kinds of gig work on a resume:

On the other hand, if you’ve been picking up some gig work alongside your studies or another job, throwing it all into your resume can lead to a cluttered, hard to read mess. So, when should you include DoorDash experience in your resume?

Put DoorDash on your resume if:

  • You’re applying for other food service or delivery roles
  • You want to land more gig work
  • You’ll be working as a freelancer or independent contractor
  • You have relevant accomplishments with strong results
  • You can use your DoorDash experience to show transferable skills
  • You worked at DoorDash between jobs and would otherwise have a resume gap

Leave DoorDash off your resume if:

  • You worked at DoorDash alongside another (more relevant) job
  • You only worked at DoorDash for a short time
  • You don’t have any strong accomplishments
  • Your resume is already full of more relevant entries

If you're wondering what else, like DoorDash or Uber Eats, should or shouldn't be included on your resume, upload it to the tool below to get a detailed review with suggestions on what you need to add or remove from your resume.

Target your resume

There’s no such thing as a “one size fits all” resume. The key is to tailor your resume by choosing the skills and experience that best fit the job you’re applying for.

Not sure what kinds of jobs are a good fit for someone with gig work experience? Consider breaking into roles like:

  • Customer service
  • Sales associate
  • Food service
  • Administrative work
  • Personal assistant
  • Dispatcher
  • Transportation

Seeing a pattern? Any role that requires the ability to work independently, manage your own time, and respond quickly to the needs of others is a great fit.

If you're not sure which skills to highlight on your resume, use the skills search tool below to get a list of relevant ones.

Consolidate your experience

If you’ve been delivering with DoorDash for a couple of years, listing that on your resume is fairly straightforward. On the other hand, if you’ve taken on a mix of different gig work, it isn’t always worth listing each of those separately. To keep your resume organized and concise:

List similar roles under a single heading. If you’ve driven for DoorDash alongside a similar company like Uber Eats or Amazon Flex, consider grouping them all under a title like “delivery driver.”

For example:

Don’t add bullet points. Yes, bullet point accomplishments are usually the most important part of a resume, but that doesn’t mean that you need them for every single job. If you’re applying for a role where DoorDash experience isn’t really relevant but you want to keep it on your resume (for example, to cover a resume gap), simply list the company and job title without the accompanying bullet points.

For example:

DoorDash resume skills

Unless you’re applying for jobs that are directly relevant — like full-time delivery positions — you’ll want to emphasize transferable skills on your resume. Think skills like:

These are all soft skills, which means don’t list them in your skills section. Instead, think of examples of when you’ve demonstrated these qualities and use your resume bullet points to explain that.

DoorDash and Uber Eats resume bullet point examples

Ready to write your DoorDash resume? Here are some sample bullet points you can use to build your resume depending on your next career move.

Delivered over 1.9K items within the company's allotted time frame of 30 minutes; received a commendation from the line supervisor.

The key to making money as a DoorDash driver is efficiency — and it can also be the key to a standout resume accomplishment. Use numbers to show that you consistently hit or exceeded targets, which is a worthwhile achievement in any field.

Solved delays arising during deliveries by communicating with 3.5K customers via phone calls and text messages.

If you’re applying for a customer-facing role, make sure to highlight your customer service, communication, and conflict resolution skills.

Improved customer service ratings from 2 stars to 5 while delivering food to 1.3K homes and 3.2K businesses.

Most positions don’t come with a handy star rating to show how good you were at your job, which means you may actually have an advantage as a gig worker. If you have a high personal rating (or if you helped improve the company’s overall rating), that’s an easy way to show that you’re a high performer.
