      What is an Electrician Resume & why do you need it?

      An electrical resume can help you to communicate your skills and potential to the recruiters while you are applying for a targeted job profile.

      It is the means through which you can either make a good first impression or a bad one.

      Most of the recruiters rely on the ATS (Applicant Tracking System) to filter through resumes to pick the most suitable applicant as the ATS makes it easier for the recruiters in picking out the most eligible resume

      The ATS picks only those resumes that contain the keywords used by the recruiters to describe the job profile that you are applying for.

      It is the first round of screening of the applicants when the number of resumes that come in the recruiters' office is in hundreds or thousands.

      You need to frame an electrical technician resume that can help you rank high on the ATS.

      Our Online Resume Builder can help you write the perfect ATS-targeted service electrician resume.

      In the meanwhile, you can also get your existing resume professionally reviewed by Hiration’s Resume Review Service.

      Electrician Resume Sections

      A resume is divided into different sections so that you can communicate your details and pieces of information most effectively.

      There are two types of sections that you need to frame in a resume. Given below is a list of the traditional standard sections that you need to frame for every resume

      • Header
      • Personal Information
      • Profile Title
      • Summary/Objective
      • Key Skills
      • Professional Experience
      • Education

      The following sections are the sections that can be framed whenever they are explicitly asked for or if you feel they are required:

      • Certifications (if any)
      • Additional Information (if any)
      • Awards & Recognitions (if any)

      Always remember that every section has its unique and important part in making your resume stand out so make sure to frame your electrical apprentice resume with a professional approach.

      In the meanwhile, read more about resume sections on Hiration's 2019 Guide to sections in a resume.

      How to write your Electrician Resume

      Framing a resume can be complicated sometimes because it is not always easy to pick the right things to write on your electricians resume.

      But despite the complications, it is not rocket science to frame the perfect resume.

      So here are the three stages that can help make your resume writing an easier experience that can have an impact on the recruiters.

      • Stage 1: Master Electrician Resume
      • Stage 2: First Draft of Electrician Resume
      • Stage 3: Final Draft of Electrician Resume

      Master Electrician Resume

      Create a master resume and gather all the details and information related to your professional, educational, personal and additional pieces of information that can enhance your resume.

      Do remember that this master resume can be used in your present timeline and for any possible updates of your industrial electrician resume in the future.

      List out any information even if you are not sure about it because you may need them in any of your future resume updates even if you do not need them in the present timeline of resume writing.

      Creating a master resume can save you time as it contains all the information that you need to fill in your resume.

      Master resumes can be used as your master folder so that you would not have to look for scattered pieces of information every time you need to upgrade your resume.

      It can also help you avoid missing out on any details that need to be filled in your electrical apprentice resume.

      First Draft of Electrician Resume

      Once your master resume is done, the next stage of resume writing is to frame the first draft of your electrician resumes.

      In this stage, you need to carefully compose the following sections:

      • Header
      • Personal Information
      • Profile Title
      • Professional Experience
      • Education
      • Certifications (if any)
      • Awards & Recognition (if any)
      • Additional Information (if any)

      Every section that you frame in your construction electrician resume should be curated with a professional approach.

      And make sure to frame every standard section while the optional sections can be framed only when required.

      Final Draft of Electrician Resume

      As part of the last stage of writing your service electrician resume, you need to compose two important sections that have been listed below:

      • Key Skills: To compose this section, all you have to do is identify your core skills from the professional experience section of your resume and objectively list them out in the “key skills” section of your resume. Make sure that you frame this section as the last second step.

      • Summary/Objective: To compose a summary of your resume, you need to have 3 years and above of work experience. Else, write an electrician resume objective if you have fewer than 3 years of work experience. Make sure to compose this section as the last step.

      You can frame the perfect resumes for electrician if you religiously follow the above-discussed stages of resume writing.

      Electrician Resume: Header

      Give your industrial electrician resume a unique identity of its own to stand out amongst other resumes by writing your name as the header of your electrical resume.

      The following points should be followed while framing the perfect header of resumes for electrician:

      • It should be written at the topmost part of your resume.
      • The header of your resume should be written in the largest font size.
      • It should be in the range of 16-20 font size.
      • If you have a middle name, write only the initial of your middle name followed by a period and place it between your first and last name.
      • Example: If your name is Spence Derby Moore, write it as "Spence D. Moore".

      Hiration’s 2019 Guide To Writing The Perfect Resume Header can help you learn more on how to curate the perfect header for your electrical apprentice resume.

      Here is a snapshot of the ideal header of an electrician resume sample that we have made with Hiration’s Online Resume Builder:

      Electrician-Resume-Header

      Electrician Resume: Personal Information

      Every job profile may require different details of your personal information as per the requirements and needs of the organization wherein you are applying for the targeted job.

      Your personal information ideally requires you to provide the details of the following:

      • Contact Number
      • Email Address
      • Current Location

      Contact Number

      At times the recruiters may want to interview you over the phone or get some verbal confirmation from you before scheduling any possible meetings.

      Make sure that you provide only the number through which the recruiters can get in touch with you 24x7 so that you do not miss out on any call from the recruiters.

      You can write your contact number is the below-given format:

      • Write your country’s ISD code as a prefix before your contact number.
      • Add a plus sign (+) before the ISD code.
      • Eg: +1 37648 21511.

      Hiration Pro Tip: If you have 2 or more mobile numbers, make sure that you accurately mention only that mobile number on which you are available 24x7. If the recruiter cannot get in touch with you, there is no use of penning down your contact number in your details. Hence, be extra sure that you are writing it correctly in your resume.

      Email Address

      We can say that emails are one of the easiest and convenient means of communication in this day and age.

      Provide the email ID that you use for official purposes and make sure that it has your real name to make the recruiters recognize you as a professional applicant.

      Example: spencemoore@xyz.com or spence@xyz.com

      Strictly avoid giving out any fancy email IDs that have childish names as it may reflect badly on you and make you see like an immature applicant who is not very serious with one's profession.

      Example: spencesuperman@xyz.com or geniusspence@xyz.com

      Hiration Pro Tip: Since your email ID is a professional communication channel between you and your recruiter, you should write it as professionally as you can. For example, use your real full name in your email ID. Avoid using flimsy nicknames while drafting your email address in your resume.

      Current Location

      There are two important points to be kept in mind and followed while providing your current location in a resume:

      • The location of your current residence should feature on the right corner, next to the e-mail address
      • If you are looking for a job in your own country, simply mention the city and state of your residence. On the contrary, if you are looking for a job in another country, a quick reference to your city and country of residence is more than enough.

      Remember that your house number, street number, or your locality name are unnecessary and should be strictly avoided in your electrical resume.

      Hiration Pro Tip: Try to avoid discussing details of your marital status, religious affiliation, or political inclination in your resume unless explicitly asked for. Most countries have forbidden it by law to mention these things as it may lead to biased hiring.

      To learn more about how to perfectly frame your personal information section, you can read Hiration's 2019 Guide to composing your contact information.

      Take a look at the electrician resume template given below to know what an ideal personal information section should ideally look like:

      Electrician-Resume-Personal-Information

      Hiration's Online Resume Builder comes with a pre-designed & pre-filled resume template that you can easily modify to suit your needs & preference.

      Electrician Resume: Profile Title

      Profile titles can be considered as the emblems of your professional identity in your electrical apprentice resume.

      Your profile title helps you communicate the following facts to the recruiter:

      • Your current designation.
      • Your functional industry.
      • Your level of seniority in your line of work.

      Write it as the second-largest text in the range of 14-16 font size in your electrical resume after the resume header.

      Do not exaggerate your profile title as it will pass off as intentionally trying to cheat the recruiters. Mention the exact profile that you held/hold.

      Look at our electrician resume sample to have a visual understanding of how an ideal profile title is framed:

      Electrician-Resume-Profile-Title

      Electrician Resume: Professional Experience

      The professional experience section is one of the most important features in a resume.

      If framed thoughtfully, it can have a huge impact on the recruiters in giving you the shortlist for the targeted job.

      The following three important factors can help you frame the perfect professional experience section:

      • STAR Format
      • Framing Points
      • Bucketing & Bolding

      STAR Format

      The cause-effect relation between your contributions and achievements can be created by using the STAR format.

      It can help you write your professional statements in a way that the recruiters can recognize your roles and contributions as well as the outcome of an action.

      STAR describes the following facts of your professional experience:

      • S describes the backdrop/context/situation of your contributions.
      • T describes the task that was assigned to you as part of your job.
      • A stands for the strategy that you put into action to execute the assigned task.
      • R stands for the result or the outcome of your action to perform an assigned task.

      Try to give a figure of number that can make the recruiters recognize your specific contributions to an organization that resulted in achievements.

      Framing Points

      Now that you are familiar with the importance of the STAR format, its time to learn how it can be effectively used while framing your professional experience section.

      Let us look at the two electrician resume examples and discuss the importance of framing points and how they can be effectively implemented.

      Electrician Resume Example 1

      "Repaired electrical equipment and devices to make sure that the product lasts for a longer period. Recognized any electrical problems and replaced the parts which were broken or needed to be replaced to maintain daily safety. Proposed strategic improvements to upgrade the product life cycle for the New Product Development (NPD) initiative. Presented daily feedback on the equipment repair status to Senior Engineers and the concerned authorities. Trained 7 new Junior Electricians in the maintenance of equipment and also trained them with installations of the electronic devices."

      Electrician Resume Example 2

      • Repaired electrical equipment & devices to accelerate product life-cycle
      • Recognized electrical problems & replaced faulty parts to maintain safety daily
      • Proposed strategic improvements to upgrade the product life cycle for the New Product Development (NPD) initiative
      • Presented daily feedback on the equipment repair status to Senior Engineers & concerned authorities
      • Trained 7 new Junior Electricians in the maintenance of equipment & installations

      Framing Points: Analysis

      By comparing the two electrician resume examples, we can see that framing points (example 2) make your statements more readable as compared to writing a lengthy paragraph (example 1).

      Frame your points with bullet points (example 2) to make it more readable and clear for the recruiters to understand.

      It can also help in avoiding the usage of vague words to maintain the clarity of your statement.

      Avoid writing lengthy paragraphs (example 1) as it can make your professional experience section look bulky and the recruiters may not want to read through bulky paragraphs.

      In conclusion, framed points are more readable as compared to bulky paragraphs as clearly shown in the two electrician resume examples.

      Bucketing & Bolding

      The final touch to enhance the framed one-liners in your professional experience section is the bucketing and bolding.

      Let us look at the two electrician resume examples and discuss the importance of bucketing and bolding your one-liners and how it can be implemented to enhance your framed points.

      Electrician Resume Example 1

      • Scheduled repairs & ordered required parts for cost-effective repairs of 90+ electrical panels
      • Installed customized lights in high-end luxury apartments under the supervision of architects
      • Repaired electrical equipment & devices to accelerate product life-cycle
      • Recognized electrical problems & replaced faulty parts to maintain safety daily
      • Proposed strategic improvements to upgrade the product life cycle for the New Product Development (NPD) initiative
      • Presented daily feedback on the equipment repair status to Senior Engineers & concerned authorities
      • Trained 7 new Junior Electricians in the maintenance of equipment & installations

      Electrician Resume Example 2

      Preventive Maintenance & Equipment Installation

      • Scheduled repairs & ordered required parts for cost-effective repairs of 90+ electrical panels
      • Installed customized lights in high-end luxury apartments under the supervision of architects

      Troubleshooting. Repair & Maintenance

      • Repaired electrical equipment & devices to accelerate product life-cycle
      • Recognized electrical problems & replaced faulty parts to maintain safety daily
      • Proposed strategic improvements to upgrade the product life cycle for the New Product Development (NPD) initiative

      Onboarding & Feedback Management

      • Presented daily feedback on the equipment repair status to Senior Engineers & concerned authorities
      • Trained 7 new Junior Electricians in the maintenance of equipment & installations

      Bucketing & Bolding: Analysis

      Both the electrician resume examples are stating the same points but we can see that bucketing & bolding (example 2) make your statements more organized as compared to only framed points (example 1).

      Create unique headings (bucketing) and list all the similar points under suitable headings.

      Then highlight all the significant points in your one-liners by bolding them.

      Doing so can make the recruiters recognize your most significant skills and it can raise your chances of getting the shortlist that you require to get closer to your dream job.

      In conclusion, bucketing and bolding makes your statements more organized when compared to only framed points as clearly shown in the two electrician resume examples.
