Answering Electrical Technician Questions

Ace 1000s of Interview Q&As

Tell me about your electrical related on-the-job training.

As an electrical technician, you have likely had a great deal of on-the-job experience combined with your education. Tell the hiring manager about the most valuable lessons you learned during your training.


Answer Example

"I received extensive on-the-job training in my first position right out of university. I had a powerful mentor who allowed me to work by his side every day for six months. The most valuable lesson I learned during this on the job training was the blueprint and schematic reading and analysis."

Entry Level

"I recently completed a three-month practicum with a local maintenance group. I was able to train under a seasoned technician, which I feel so grateful for. One of the most significant points I learned was how to troubleshoot maintenance issues quickly. Now, I look forward to working with another strong technician but also carving my way as an electrical technician."


"I had a great deal of on-the-job training when I initially started my career. The electrical technician I worked under was very helpful. I told myself that I would return the favor to other junior technicians when I became more seasoned, myself. Now, I train other technicians on aspects like troubleshooting, schematics and blueprint reading, and proper use of power tools."
