Tips for Electrician helper Resumes

Professional Skills

An electrician helper should know the types of equipment used, the names of the power tools and the types of supplies the main electrician could ask for during a particular task. They should also be able to accurately read different measuring tool’s outputs, record results and perform different actions even in harsh outdoor conditions. Having auxiliary skills including pole climbing, utilitarian climbing should be highlighted in a resume as these could give a competitive edge.

An electrician helper should be able to do some simple replacements (light bulbs, sockets, switches) on his own, as well as checking faulty parts of the circuit.

Equipment Operating Skills

An electrician helper works with a wide range of tools, most of which are hand-held tools like drills, saws, angular, etc. Knowing how to properly use each of them is part not only of the job, but personal safety. Those with no previous knowledge should not count on beginner’s luck and ask their team leader for a qualification course, or at least a hands-on training.

Team-working and Leadership Skills

Since the Electrician helper’s role is to assist the main electrician or as a member of a bigger construction team, this job calls for good communication skills and the ability to coordinate with other workers to get the job done. Communication should be simple, direct, identifying the problems and proposing solutions and replying to make the team leader aware of the fact that you get the task’s requirements.
