One important job in the world of engines is that of an engine repair technician. The specialty trade of fixing engine problems is something that many consider being a vital part of maintaining a vehicle’s engine, especially cars and trucks.
A repair technician works with electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and power systems engineering to design, create, service, and diagnose the different types of engine systems, motors, and other components that design, create service, and repair engines. Often, this work provides a broad base of knowledge about engine component repair skills. As an example of general work, an engine repair technician might be trained in instrumentation technology, vibration analysis, component design analysis, and technology, to name just a few.
To become a certified repair technician, you must complete a special program from a graduate program and have specified coursework that qualifies you to be certified. Some common courses available are a Banned Technical Writing Course, an exam in electronic fundamentals, an exam in electronic welding, or a two-year associate degree with a primary emphasis on engineering mechanics and maintenance. A big benefit of the graduate program is that you are still in full-time academic employment in the industry! Being able to seek and expect a job is usually just a matter of having the proper certifications and continuing education.
It’s not an easy job, and sometimes it’s a real discipline’s grace to get this kind of work done. Not only will you be plaguing yourself day and night with the problem, but will feel a stranglehold on issues you have no idea about the problem or even how to solve the problem. This is also itself a disadvantage to a living in the automotive industry.
Maintenance is really another good reason. The standard model of an engine has many moving parts. To maintain these parts on an empowered schedule is something that someone trained in their field may be able to do. How many people have the heart and tenacity to look at a car engine and notice that when the seal on one of the main bearings goes bad, the vehicle has an Unlock of the car dash?
Someone able to help you understand just what is happening to your car may be able to immediately make changes, limit or avoid damage to your car. However, it is pretty well understood that you may not have enough common concern to fix an engine yourself if means to save money for you or even for your car!
If Maintenance outset for you is a priority, can you offer to apply for a job board service contract with a local service department? These firms work full time at making you look the part. Not only will the image of you in their advertisement enhance your stand for display (it may seem like a cliché, but it does make sense), but you will have one final advantage – using the local service department will free you from the job. They directly deal with the real representatives of your company.
But probably the main reason against is that a general understanding of the competence of a repair technician to take care of an engine’s problem completely is really lacking. It is one thing to know why to change an air filter, but quite another to understand how it works! This aside, is it fair to say that the flashlight hunted that brighter than BI keenness? Which is a task that remains powers for the day.

So, in today’s economy, it is difficult to find a good job that pays enough money to support you and possibly a family. Many people have either been laid off, fired, or just can’t seem to find a job. So what do you do? Unemployment doesn’t seem to cover even the essential bills. this is my advice to you…
- You need to start off with a positive attitude that you will find a job. It might not be the exact one you are dreaming of, but it is a starting point.
- The first step is to write a resume that clearly points out all of your positive attributes and why a potential employer would benefit from having you work for them. Be sure to include your top skills and any experience or education you have had that make you the perfect candidate.
- Be Seen! Once you have a resume, now you need to let the world know you are available for hire. there are many websites out there that will post your resume for free. Careerbuilder and are two of the top sites to post your resume free of charge.
- Now depending on what type of work you are seeking, make a list up of all the potential companies that you would like to work for. Most companies do not advertise all of their open positions due to the cost of advertising. Once you have made up your potential contact list, now it is time to call them directly and speak with their hiring managers. Tell the hiring manager of your background and experience and how they would benefit from adding you onto their payroll. If they are hiring, ask for a live interview. If not, ask them if you could send a resume to keep on file just in case a position comes available that matches your background and experience.
- If you are scheduled for an interview, now you will need to prepare yourself. The most important part of the preparation is to, research the company and learn all about what they do. Your research will pay off because it shows that you are truly interested in working with them and took the time to check them out.
- Next, it is time to get your checklist together for the interview. You will want to prepare one list of your attributes that you want the hiring manager to know about you. One great attribute would be that you are a great communicator if it is true of course. Think of all the positive things that people say about you and reference those attributes to the interviewer.
- Now you will want to prepare a list of questions to ask the hiring manager. The more questions you ask, the more interested you will look to them.
- Remember to answer all questions honestly and sincerely and look your interviewer directly in the eye. Give short concise answers and do not elaborate unless asked.
- At the end of the interview, ask for the job by saying, “When can I start” this usually gives them a chuckle but also shows interest. You would be surprised how many people do not ask!
- Be sure to get a business card in order to send out a thank you note for the interview. This is the most professional way to follow up.
- Be persistent in your job search and follow up.
There is a mind-boggling amount of information available on what to do to make your Resume THE Resume that earns an interview – which is, after all, the real purpose of Resumes. Some of that advice is excellent, and some of it is not so excellent. How can you tell what is going to work and what is not? Here are three easy but very three basic rules worth following.
- Keep it professional
- Keep it clean
- Keep it pertinent
Let’s start with No. 1. Keep it professional
What does that mean? Well, it doesn’t mean I’m only talking to the college or university educated. Whatever you do, if you are skilled, unskilled or highly lettered. Your Resume should always be professional. Why? Because it is a document that is selling you: your skills, your abilities, your experience, your worth to this new company. This is a professional transaction regardless of what the job is and the employer will be on the lookout for the best person for the job. Stand out by being professional in your presentation both on paper and in person – this includes NOT using coloured or fancy paper. Crisp white paper, dark clear ink.
Now, let’s look at No. 2. Keep it clean.
I’m not talking about obscenities or suggestive photos. Nor am I saying make sure there are no blobs, fingermarks, smudges etc on the paper – all that is a given! What I’m saying is the overall layout of your Resume must be clean – to the eye. It must be easy to read, easy to run an eye down, even inviting.
First, ignore the templates available on your Word program or online, the majority of which come with a ready-made table. These are complicated to use unless you are an expert in tables. You’d be better using columns – but I’m not recommending them either. Tables, and columns, get clunky and awkward and take quite a bit of work to have everything neatly encapsulated and all the relevant information together. And, let’s face it, unless you are applying for a job that involves the daily compilation of tables, no-one is impressed by tables.
Go with headings, paragraphs and bullet points. The first person to read your Resume will most likely peruse it, searching for highlights and pertinent abilities and experience. If they receive a pile of Resumes, and they usually do, they will want to create a shortlist. Only then will they read your Resume closely, probably intending to pare that shortlist even further before deciding who to interview.
Make it clear and obvious that you have what they are looking for. This means carefully reading their advertisement to ensure you are indicating that you have what they are looking for.
And, finally, No. 3. Keep it pertinent.
That means exactly what it says. Don’t fill up your Resume with miscellaneous, unrelated or personal information. No-one has time to read it, and less inclination. Putting all your social activities just isn’t pertinent – unless it is in some way related to the tasks you will undertake in the job. Don’t include every job you’ve done since the year dot – unless it is pertinent. And the further back you go, the less information you include – unless that is the job that is pertinent. There is plenty of time to share miscellaneous information once you have the job, or at interview if they ask.
So, remember, Professional, Clean, Pertinent. Weigh up all advice with these three basic rules in mind and you are well on the way to creating just the right Resume to earn you an interview.
