You’ve been putting out your resume for a few weeks and it has finally happened; you have a call back for an interview. So what now? Whether you’re an individual with years of experience in the HVAC field, or making a career change and starting at entry-level, preparing for the questions a hiring manager will have can feel overwhelming. Since there isn’t a set script for which questions you might be asked, preparing for the questions themselves isn’t always the best approach. As ECI’s talent recruiter, I’ve conducted multiple interviews with a variety of approaches I tailor for each candidate based on the position a person is applying for. Here’s some advice I have for those of you preparing for yours!
There are a lot of sides to the HVAC field, and if you’re looking for career options, there are several different opportunities available. For those who can’t see themselves being satisfied in an office setting, it may feel like those options are simply service or install. While service and install are the two broad areas of specialization, where you go within those specializations has a lot more room for growth and expansion than you might realize, so it’s important to weigh your options carefully.
