If you are looking to advance your career, get started in a new field, or…
You can spend weeks, months, or even years training in a particular field. That doesn’t mean you’ll ever find employment in that field. It doesn’t matter the type of career – employment relies on a lot more than just training or skills. So what does it take to find a job in the heavy equipment field?
If we assume that skills are not the issue, then finding employment comes down to two things: knowing where the jobs are and knowing how to best apply for those jobs. You cannot isolate those issues either. You may know where the jobs are, however, if you don’t know how to best approach potential employers, you’ll most likely not make the interview stage. It goes without saying that it’s pointless knowing how apply for a job vacancy if you don’t know where those vacancies are.
ATS Heavy Equipment Operator Training Schools have solved those problems by including a free lifetime access to a career services department with your training. When you start one of our training programs (and that includes crane operations and truck driver training), one of our career services personnel will work with you to help develop your career. This assistance includes soft skills training in areas such as resume creation and interview techniques. Our career services personnel will also work with you to identify potential employers related to the location and type of work you want to undertake.
Graduates also have access to our employer database and a dedicated jobs website. Employers frequently list jobs on this website (and we publish many of these jobs on this blog every Saturday) and review resumes left by graduates. How do you successfully start a heavy equipment operator career? You get the right training, then you make the most use of any career assistance offered by your training school. If your training school doesn’t offer career services, then you may find it difficult to gain that all important first job in the industry.
