The 7 Mistakes to Avoid on an Electrician Resume
Write an electrician resume full of mistakes and you won't get an interview. Write a resume with just one small mistake and you probably still won't get an interview. You can see where we're going with this!
With so much competition from other candidates just as qualified as you, it's easy to see why a mistake on your resume drastically reduces your chances. Many other candidates will have written an error-free resume, giving the employer more confidence in your abilities.
What does a resume error say about you?
It states that you are prone to error and lack due diligence to be accurate and consistent. Can the employer risk hiring someone with these potential qualities - especially for an electric role? Definitely not! For jobs like this, where attention to detail, accuracy, and diligence aren't just important — they can potentially make the difference between life and death — your resume needs to be flawless.
Here are 7 mistakes to avoid if you want to maximize your chances of getting an interview:
1. Choosing an ATS-unfriendly theme
ATS stands for Applicant Tracking System and is software commonly used by large companies to filter the best applications. While it's not entirely foolproof, it's necessary for large companies that expect hundreds or maybe even thousands of applications to land in their inbox.
If you're applying to a large company and suspect they're getting a lot of applications, you need to make sure yours is ATS compliant. This means applying the following:
- Do not use special characters, images or text fields
- Choose an appropriate file format
- Stick to a traditional font
- Stick to two sides
- Use matching ad keywords
The best approach is to keep everything as simple as possible so that once it's gone through the machine it's human readable too! Avoid using anything other than an acceptable font with titles and proper spacing. Anything that might confuse the software is likely to be rejected.
Our electrician resume template is designed for ATS software. It uses Arial font with no graphics, columns or tables. You can see moreATS compatible modelshere, and learn more about ATS here:

2. Use too much paint
There's nothing wrong with trying to be a little creative and different when designing your resume layout. Adding a pop of color can look great and make your app more memorable. Our electrician resume has splashes of electric blue (of course!). However, don't overdo it with the color and stick to a simple color scheme.
Avoid dark, aggressive colors like red or brown. Instead, opt for a safer color like light blue or green. A light yellow one is also less obtrusive and won't overshadow your credentials. Color can be used effectively to emphasize headers and borders. However, do not use light tones for text as they may not print very well.
3. Use of more than one font
Some people like to use more than one font fortry to stand outand get a little creative. The problem with this, however, is that it can seem too odd and prevent the reader from really absorbing the content.
Using a second or even third font can leave the hiring manager scratching their head and wondering what's going on on the page. Our advice would be to use color if you want to get creative as suggested above and just use one font. The only exception is if you want to change the font of titles. If you decide to do this, make sure that the font for the headings is not too different from the main font and that it fits.
Bonus-Tipp:Remember that if you send your CV in Word format, the recipient must have the required fonts installed to be able to view it. If not, the computer usually substitutes a simpler font. However, occasionally the computer gets confused with very fancy fonts and simply replaces the text with empty boxes. Therefore, for resumes emailed as a Word document, it is safer to use standard fonts such as Arial and Times New Roman for all important information.
4. Using a bad layout
Your margins affect how the writing looks on the page. In the initial stages of writing your resume, you may find that a paragraph is being split into two pages. This is something you absolutely must avoid as it doesn't look very good.
One of the most common editing errors we encounter is when a previous role's job description spills over to the next page. A small adjustment to the margins and/or font size would fix this. You must finish the end of the first page before the reader proceeds to the second page.
You will see in our sample electrician resume that we have arranged it so that no roles are broken out on the page. We also used a continuation header on side two.
5. Unexplained employment gaps
If you have been unemployed for a few months or even years in the past, you must explain in your CV why this happened. Otherwise, the employer will have to guess what will not end well. You will likely take a more suspicious approach than assuming everything is fine.
Imagine for a moment that you were the hiring manager and you noticed that someone has a 6-month gap between jobs. What can you guess? Maybe they were struggling to find work. Maybe they're not good at giving interviews. Worse, maybe they're just lazy. Whatever the reason for the gap, you must explain it briefly to avoid suspicion.

You don't have to go into too much detail if you don't want to, especially if you're unemployed for personal health reasons. However, it is important that you state the reason briefly and without fuss and reassure the employer that you are now fully operational so that the matter can be addressed. The employer can then examine your CV with more confidence.
6. General Hobbies
The "Hobbies and Interests" section of a resume is usually designed to do little more than show off a candidate's personality. However, there are ways to add value to your entire application if you see the potential in this section.
There are certain generic hobbies that the employer keeps seeing. Interests such as going to the cinema, reading books and going out with friends at the weekend are certainly very general. If you indicate this on your CV, we recommend that you remove this section entirely. It's just not necessary and won't add any value to your resume.
However, if you have more creative or sporty hobbies, enjoy. Certain hobbies can showcase your interpersonal skills, such as B. Communication and leadership. If you go to the gym all the time and keep fit, the employer might assume that you won't have many sick days. If you are the captain of a sports team, you demonstrate leadership skills and so on.
Creative hobbies can also be related to your career, such as robotics, web design, computer software, or singing in a band (the latter shows that you are confident and comfortable with public speaking). These types of hobbies not only represent your interpersonal skills, but they are also a great topic of conversation in job interviews.
7. Irrelevant Personal Information
The only personal information you are required to include in a resume is your name, email address, and phone number. There are certain industries that would require other personal information, such asactingor model making. But most of the time, you only need to provide these three things.
It's not a good idea to provide anything else, since you're leaving yourself open to thatdiscrimination. For example, if the employer has a preconceived notion about young people, they may decide to reject your CV if you provide your date of birth. However, putting that aside and getting an interview gives you a chance to prove yourself face-to-face.
Write your electrician resume
Almost all employers looking to hire an electrician will require certain technical skills (Level 3 Installation, 18th Edition, etc.) and you should. However, not all job advertisements include other required skills such as B. Soft skills listed. Job descriptions and profiles can be very helpful in figuring out which ones are most important to the typical employer. For example:
