Question 2 of 25
Electricians have a big responsibility . How well do you pay attention to details and safety?
Professional Answers Preview
"I have worked on some complicated problems in the past including repairs on an old factory. I take a systematic approach to check for specific problems first. I know my tools and when to use them which greatly eliminates chances for error. I will triple check my work on challenging tasks. I feel that it is essential to submit error free work as an electrician."
The only way to prove you have impeccable attention to details is by painting a picture through giving a well-articulated example. Electricians thrive on the details, and if they miss them, it can cost time, energy and money! Break it down. What details did you look for when you identified the problem? Were you successful in solving the problem by taking that approach? If you are so detailed oriented, you should be able to offer up detailed examples. Take some time to prepare and think through how you have used your precision to sort through the issues like a fine-toothed comb.
More Answer Examples
Entry Level Example
"I am so accustomed to working under pressure and tight deadlines as a university student that sometimes small errors have been made on my part. I am careful to double check my work especially when it comes to meeting code on a project."
Experienced Example
"As an electrician, I must pay considerable attention to every detail of my job. My coworkers and supervisor would attest to my ability to notice even the smallest errors. I am here to do great work that always meets code."
