Tips for Writing a Better Electronics Technician Resume

1. Avoid “laundry list” sentences

As an electronics technician, you probably have a firm grasp of various devices and components. That knowledge is an asset to your job search, of course. But it can become a problem for your resume if it leads you to write “Proficiencies include…” or “Responsible for components including…” followed by a long laundry list. Sentences like this fail to attract a hiring manager’s interest. Sure, they shed light on your work areas. But they don’t shed any light on what hiring managers want to know: your actions concerning those work areas.

This may sound like a tricky problem, but it doesn’t have to be. You can easily avoid the “laundry list” sentences that bog down the resumes of so many other electronics technicians. Just start every job description sentence as an “I” statement followed by one or more action verbs (for ideas, see the below “Common Action Verbs” section). Then take out the “I” and leave the rest of the phrase on your final resume. The resulting line will place a hiring manager’s attention right where it belongs: on the dynamic actions you’ve taken to generate value for your employers.

Example:

  • [I] Build, troubleshoot, and modify electrical products and components
  • [I was] Appointed to leadership role training, guiding, and overseeing a group of 5 hires
  • [I] Achieved and maintained a near-perfect (98%) service rating for three years
  • [I] Developed training materials that helped new employees better grasp product features and requirements

 

2. Omit job details that don’t speak to your goal

Your resume will work best if you focus on details that are not just impressive but also relevant. For instance, say you recently took on a leadership role training and supervising new hires. That’s a great point to showcase if your goal is a technician job with leadership duties (see Example 3 above). But what if you don’t want to continue in leadership? In that case, you’ll want to leave your current leadership duties off your resume. Instead, use that space to describe your more hands-on work in the position.

3. Trade that objective statement for a profile summary

For a long time, the standard resume intro was an objective statement. Rather than describing your key qualifications, an objective states your end goal for your job search. Here’s an example: “Seeking an engaging Electronics Technician job where I can apply my talents.” In recent years, the objective statement has fallen out of favor. The thinking: Objectives speak to your needs, not the hiring managers, so they’re not the best way to introduce or market yourself.

For this reason, you should avoid using an objective. Instead, open your resume with a profile summary of what you bring to the table. Read more: How to Write a Resume Summary in Six Easy Steps

4. Put your work history in the correct order

The job descriptions on your resume should be in reverse-chronological order. That is, newest to oldest. This rule might sound simple enough. But it could confuse you if you started or ended multiple jobs simultaneously or held a short-term job at the same time as a long-term job that ended later. There’s an easy solution. First, order all your positions, newest to oldest, by their end date. Then, order any positions with the same end date, from newest to oldest by their start date.

Example:

Electronics Technician | 2019 to Present

Electronics Technician | 2019 to 2020

Electronics Technician | 2014 to 2020

Electronics Technician | 2015 to 2018

How to Align Your Electronics Technician Resume With the Job Description

When you find an electronics technician job posting that interests you, look closely at the required skills and qualifications. Are there any you possess but haven’t featured on your resume yet? For example, have you worked on similar electrical devices or in the same industry?

If so, consider mentioning that experience in your resume Profile. (Often, you can add it to the end of your intro line.) This extra step will make your resume more relevant to the job and more likely to attract the hiring manager’s notice.
