Job Title: Electronics Technician
Type of Company: Electronic data storage.
Education: graduate, US Navy Technical School, Electronics and Missile Fire Control
Previous Experience: I have held electronics technician jobs at various companies.
Job Tasks: I am currently responsible for the debugging of microprocessor-based information storage equipment and I test, calibrate and repair electronic pharmaceutical equipment. I'm also responsible for the assembly, testing, and shipping of new product orders. I am frequently called upon to test, maintain and repair electronic installation equipment and to order and organize replacement parts. I write the test procedures for equipment and serve as a customer liaison on questions relating to the use, availability, operation and on-site repair of installation equipment. I also train employees to test, maintain and repair that equipment.
Best and Worst Parts of the Job: The worst part of my job, lately, is 1) dealing with supervisors not technically aware of my job responsibilities and 2) dealing with company philosophies that are not grounded in reality.
The best part of my job is the satisfaction I get from doing it in a professional and efficient manner.
Job Tips: Use your common sense. Think before acting. Do not participate in company politics and personal intrigue. Keep personal information and opinions to yourself. Do your best. Maintain your appearance and hygiene in a professional manner. Try to keep abreast of the latest technologies especially as they may apply to the industry you are in and as it pertains to your job.
Additional Thoughts: A cover letter is often considered the key to securing an interview with a potential employer. It is the first communication that potential employers receive from a candidate and can directly impact whether or not they choose to read your resume and ultimately call you for an interview. An effective cover letter should engage the reader to want to know more about you and should showcase your personality and passion for your career. It should also focus on the attributes that make you uniquely qualified for the job and describe your skills and how they would be applied to add value in the position.
