Position Overview:

Electrical Assistant

An Electrical Assistant is essentially a helper. The basic task they perform is aiding electricians by performing duties which require less technical skill. This includes things like using, supplying, or holding tools and materials, cleaning the workspace and equipment. Along with performing these manual tasks, they may be requested to communicate with other supervisors or peers – providing them with information about any operations that may be undertaken in the near future, and the state of the environment in which these operations are to be undertaken. An average hourly salary of an Electrical Assistant is around $16 in the US. 
 

Company Overview:
Glaxo Smith Kline

In our opinions hardly in need of an introduction, GlaxoSmithKline is a global science-led healthcare firm. It focused on the research and development of a broad range of products in three primary areas of pharmaceuticals, vaccines, and consumer healthcare. With a presence in more than 150 countries and a network of 64 manufacturing sites in 31 countries, their contribution to helping people do more, feel better, and live longer, has undoubtedly had a significant impact. Working in such a big and bureaucratic company may become a bit daunting at times, but anyone truly interested in pharmaceutical science or simply wanting to contribute to an admirable mission will surely enjoy this cutting-edge environment.

How to write your own Electrical Assistant resume?

1. Mention the formal background of your knowledge

There aren’t really any formal requirements for someone to become an Electrical Assistant, so this piece of advice is more about giving your application a leg up from other applicants. Not many people bother with adding more ‘perks’ to their application once they have met the basic expectations of the job. That is especially the case for jobs like this.

Giving that extra edge to your resume by giving an account of any degrees or certificates you have gotten in the past will add some credibility to the claims you may have about how well you really know the technical aspects of this job.

Electrical Assistant Education Example

  • "Certificate 2 in Electrotechnology / South Metropolitan Tafe (Thornlie Campus), Gosnells, Western Australia, Australia (01/2018 – 07/2018)"

  • "Bachelor of Commerce in Information Technology / Curtin University of Technology, Perth, Western Australia, Australia (06/2003 – 02/2006)"

2. List and quantify your aptitude at using different tools

After listing your formal qualifications, it would be good to let the reader know to what effect gaining these qualifications make you worth hiring. What skills were you taught? How good are you at utilizing them? What is the potential scope of responsibilities you could take on?

You should probably compile a list of all the relevant technical skills you could be asked to use while on the job. Along with simply listing what you deem should be here though, make sure you also indicate what your strongest suits are. One cannot be good at everything, and as an assistant, by admitting that you have some deficiencies, you signal the reader that you would be willing to learn.

Electrical Assistant Technical Skills Example

  • "Soldering and Desoldering - Very good"

  • "Multimeter Usage - Excellent"

  • "Bridge Megger Usage - Excellent"

  • "Wire Cutting - Good"

3. Do not get bogged down by details irrelevant to the position

If there is one thing this resume is not doing as well, it is prioritization. There are simply way too many sections and descriptions which are not necessarily relevant for an application for this position. As an Assistant, you do not need to list your transferable skills for example. It may put the reader off by creating the impression you do not really want to do what you are applying for.  

Think of what is truly relevant for a recruiter to know when you want them to consider for a specific position. This means really thinking about the nature of the post you want to work and trying to tap into that.
