That's why it's important to know what to put on your resume: Start off with a summary paragraph, quickly showcasing your strengths, electrician experience and electrical trades background and show that you are a good fit for the job they are trying to fill. Use different words in your electrician resume..not the common words that many job-seekers add to their resumes: Try these: advised, mastered, contracted, eliminated, established, executed, oversaw, proposed, first-class, unmatched, presided over, initiated, upgraded, veteran...get the idea?
