If you are looking to advance your career, get started in a new field, or…
Starting out in a new career is one of the hardest things that anyone can do. Heavy equipment careers are rewarding and after just three weeks of training, you are ready for work. The problem is, getting that first start. This is where professional career services can make an important difference – they can help you open doors to gain that first job.
Heavy equipment vacancies are often competitive so employers can often take their time to select the right recruit for their organization. There are many areas that employers look at including experience, personal traits, and the applicants training. If the applicant has been trained by highly reputable training provider, then there is a good chance they will gain preference over an experienced operator. There are a number of reasons behind this, the chief one being that a new well trained operator often has the latest skills and has not yet developed poor operating habits.
More importantly for those entering training, career service providers know which employers are more likely to give a novice a start. As student in a heavy equipment training course, they can provide advice as to which employers you should be targeting and how best to approach them. Some employers are old fashioned and would prefer to see you face to face. Others prefer the application letter and resume. It’s these little things that can often give you the edge when seeking employment for the first time.
Associated Training Schools has a long history of assisting graduates into employment. We have developed networks with hundreds of employers who hire novice crane operators, truck drivers and a wide range of heavy equipment operators. With this in mind, career services should be one area that factors highly when considering a change in career and even more so when considering a training provider.
