Summary: These 5 tips are a surefire way to impress your team, and your boss, and continue to grow into the best electrician you can be!

  1. ⏰ Be punctual: Arriving on time not only shows your supervisor that you are reliable, but it ensures that you receive the right information each day in order to get started on your work for the day. Often, there are important morning meetings that cover safety information and the delegation of tasks. Being on time prevents miscommunication on important topics, making everyone's day go smoothly!

  2. πŸ’‘ Be proactive: If materials need to be picked up around the site, take the initiative to clean up. This shows humility to your team and inspires others to maintain the same standards you set. If you're unsure of how to do something, pause, and consult a trusted teammate or your foreman. Instead of forging ahead in the wrong direction, be proactive to make sure the job gets done right.

  3. πŸ§‘β€πŸŽ“ Be ready to learn: No one knows it all. Be eager to learn from those around you that know more. When you work alongside someone who has more experience in the trade than you, be coachable. Allow them to give you tips and take instructions without offense. The more you can learn, the better you will be for yourself and your teammates, and not to mention, your future paycheck will thank you for it! The great thing about the electrical trade is the ability to grow in your skills and knowledge and in turn, earn more.

  4. 🀝 Be a team player: Work is much more satisfying when you work on a cohesive team. Despite what it may feel like sometimes, teamwork starts with you. Be the teammate that you wish you had. When you pitch in and lend a helping hand, your team will feel supported and morale will be boosted. If your supervisor asks you to do a task, do it willingly with a smile. Not only will you feel better, but you'll reduce the stress of tight deadlines that weigh on everyone!

  5. πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ Take responsibility: We've all heard the saying "No one is perfect," but when it comes to ourselves, it's difficult to own up to that fact. Taking responsibility for a mistake you've made may not feel good at the moment, but claiming ownership over your actions will always be the best choice in the long run. Taking responsibility for your work is how you demonstrate to your team and your boss that you respect yourself and them.
