Electrical Contractors looking for Electricians

There are contractors that are in need of electricians.out-of-work-construction-worker Qualified,motivated,dependable and confident electricians. Right now the news paper want ads are at a all time low.No news there.But there is hope.And you need to not only have hope;you need to show it in the way you carry yourself! If you walk into a contractor's office with a look of despair and self defeat it won't get you far. Walk in with confidence on your mind. Carry in with you the look of "I'm here and ready to work". Calling and faxing resumes won't get you far in the beginning.You have to show yourself. Check out this article I recently read. It is a couple of years old but still holds true today.

Most likely if you only send a resume via fax or mail it,it will end up looking like this photo stacked in a corner somewhere.

Get in the phone book, go online whatever you need to do to get you and your resume out there.Remember,if it comes off the fax machine or received in the mail,it will get thrown in a corner.Getting out there at least you have a chance of talking to a live person.Remember to get the persons name you handed it to ( with a smile & hello).It will help when you do a follow up call.

Follow Up!

Phone calls after the initial "drop off " are ok.Mention the person that you gave the resume to.It shows you have an intrest and pay attention.By mentioning the fact that you came in on Tuesday and left your resume with Carol at the front desk will in fact show that you are making the first move and effort to getting the job. My next post will be about presenting yourself and knowledge to the person doing interviews. Till then,keep your heads up and above all-don't give up!
