Pros and Cons to being a tradesman
As an electrical apprentice, I've faced my fair share of struggles. When I first started out, I was overwhelmed by the sheer amount of information and technical knowledge that I needed to learn in order to do my job well. I was constantly second-guessing myself and feeling like I wasn't cut out for the job.
But as time went on, I began to gain confidence in my abilities. I started asking questions and seeking out guidance from more experienced electricians. I also made a point to always pay attention and learn from my mistakes.
One of the biggest challenges I faced was dealing with difficult customers. I often had to work in people's homes and businesses, and some of them were not always happy to see me. They would complain about the noise or the inconvenience of having an electrician in their space.
To overcome this challenge, I learned to be patient and understanding. I would explain the situation to the customer and let them know what I was doing and why it was necessary. I also made a point to be respectful and courteous at all times, even when dealing with difficult customers.
Another challenge I faced was dealing with the physical demands of the job. As an electrician, I often have to work in tight spaces and awkward positions. This can be physically demanding and exhausting.
To overcome this challenge, I made sure to take care of my body. I started exercising regularly and eating a healthy diet. I also made sure to take regular breaks and stretch my muscles to avoid injury.
Through hard work and determination, I was able to overcome these challenges and become a skilled and confident electrician. I am now proud of the work that I do and the contribution that I make to my community
