If you’re seeking a maintenance tech position, you need to know what makes you stand out from the competition. Showing how your skills and experience make you best suited for the role will help you secure a job faster. Here are a few suggestions for what makes you an awesome maintenance tech candidate.
Provide Professional References
Ask former employers, employees, and co-workers whether you may use their names before giving out their information to employers. Ensure each person’s information is updated and complete. Determine which references prefer a phone call and which would rather receive questions over email. Include each person’s relationship to you and the company you both worked for. Customize your references as much as possible for each position you apply for. Send your references the job description so they understand what your responsibilities may be and can discuss how you fulfilled similar duties with a previous employer.
Show Your Adaptation to Company Culture
For example, watch videos on the company’s website to determine how employees interact with each other and with residents. Tour the property and get a feel for the culture. Notice whether employees look excited and are working collaboratively. Talk to the employees about what types of developmental experiences they’ve had working on the property. Find ways you can convey your agreement with the company’s structure, values, work ethic and atmosphere. Show what you can bring to benefit the organization and how you’ll go out of your way to fulfill your responsibilities.
Explain What Environment Best Fits You
Convey whether you prefer to work on a small or large property, if you like formal processes or a less structured format for finishing your work or whether you prefer set work hours or a flexible schedule. Ensure you point out you’re dependable, accurate and finish your work on time.
