Electricians must be able to adapt to the changing landscape of their industry. As the world continues to change, they will need to learn to use new technologies and tools.
In the future electricians may be much more focused on renewable energy and smart technologies than they are now. This will require many electricians to adapt.
As such, adaptability is a vital skill for electricians. If your CV demonstrates your ability to adapt to changing environments, you’ll impress recruiters and optimise your job search.
How do you show adaptability on your CV?
The easiest and most effective way of articulating your adaptability is to describe times that you have changed something to achieve positive outcomes; this is what adaptability is all about.
Here is an example:
‘Sourced and obtained new, more efficient technology to replace outdated testing devices that weren’t providing accurate, timely results.’
Note how, in this example, the candidate shows that she identified a problem, then changed (sourced new technology) to solve the problem. This shows that she is capable of adapting.
By showing these five skills on your electrician CV, you’ll improve your chances of impressing recruiters and employers. To see how we showcased these skills in an electrician’s CV, take a look at the electrician CV sample in this guide.
