Some readers may have never looked further than the article’s heading. It is a bad habit that has been passed off as online reading. And it could even be rude. The point is that a local electrician in Traverse City MI newly qualified, fresh out of trade school and having done his internship could have something of a leading edge over the more seasoned electricians who have already spent a lifetime in the trade.
It is perhaps human nature. While old dogs could certainly learn new tricks, they are stubbornly averse to this good habit. The ones that do get ahead are probably the ones to look out for. Top performers, no doubt. Nevertheless, the young gun, already buzzing with enthusiasm as he makes his early forays into his chosen career, is always willing to learn. He will be the first in line to learn all of the new upgrades.
And he will most probably study well before he goes to bed at night. Unless he is on the clock for a night shift. That, by now, is a characteristic feature of the electrical contracting business. Because of the sense of urgency required in responding to electrical emergencies that could occur at any time, electrical contracting companies generally keep their doors open on a 24/7 basis. And it could be said that because the newly qualified electrician is still fairly young, he is in good shape physically and mentally and should therefore have no qualms about doing the odd graveyard shift.
He is mentally alert and that of course is an important attribute in this line of work. Also note that the youngster is by now computer literate, which makes sense, given that most new technologies will be software enhanced.
