GIVE A DESCRIPTION OF A DAY IN THE LIFE OF AN ELECTRICAL ENGINEER.
An average day consists of completing planned maintenance tasks on machinery and helping with the continuous improvement project work that is planned by the system technicians. Between doing this I am answering calls to breakdowns on running plants.
HOW DID YOU END UP IN THIS JOB?
I applied through the apprenticeships.org website and underwent a selection process at my local college; I then went through the interview process at Premier Foods Carlton factory.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO SOMEONE THINKING OF PURSUING THIS CAREER?
The job is rewarding and the experience you gain cannot be taught at a college or university. An apprenticeship is a great opportunity!
DID YOU BUY SOMETHING SPECIAL WITH YOUR FIRST PAY CHEQUE?
I couldn’t wait for my first pay cheque - As soon as I signed the contract to start the job I bought myself a brand new car!
