Answering Electrical Technician Questions

Ace 1000s of Interview Q&As

Why do you want to be an electrical technician?

The interviewer would like to know why you chose this as a career path. Your answer can include a little bit of personal touch when you tell the hiring manager about your path to becoming an electrical technician.


Answer Example

"Growing up, my father was an electrical technician, and I knew it was the path that I wanted to take from early on. I like to be in a hands-on role, and this was a natural choice for me."

Entry Level

"I have a strong interest in electrical work and equipment maintenance but did not have an interest in going into engineering. I recently completed my 2-year associate's degree and am eager to get some hands-on experience."


"I have been an electrical technician for the past nine years and couldn't imagine doing anything else! I am ready to take on a role where I can teach junior electrical technicians. This career is important to me, and I am proud of what I do."
