Hello maintenance guru's.Can anyone enlighten me on why I am having a hard time finding a job as an Industrial Maintenance Technician in DFW Texas of all places where industry is pretty healthy. I have been here less than a month and I have applied for like every suitable job on ALL the websites as soon as they post. Even the so called "Veterans Only" jobs on the state employment site. Im beginning to realize that alot of them are posted by temps and is not a surprise that I have no luck with them. Well here are a few of my qualifications:

1) I recently graduated with a COLLEGE DIPLOMA for GOD's SAKE in Industrial Maintenance Technology from a community college and I am for damn sure alot of the technicians especially the old guys out here never had college. A college diploma is the same amount of credit hours as an Associates Degree.

2) Army Veteran 8yrs.

The only thing working against me is my lack of on the job experience. But I had to ajust my resume accordingly and thats all I will say about that. I feel I obtained state of the art hands on training in college to be a qualified technician as well as engineering level study of the technology.

Any of you old technicians who are lucky to have their foot in the door please reply because I am highly frustrated and I do have student loans to be paid back for actually going to college

There is still quite a demand for those of us in the trades (maintenance professionals). Unfortunately as the need for steady employment consistently increases, the pay for highly skilled labor decreases.

Many employers and potential employers post jobs that have historically paid a wage high enough to pay the bills and eat also have lowered the wage to an amount at or below the poverty level. Many of these "career opportunities" require the certifications, the years of experience, the formal training and licenses but offer a wage of "10.00" per hour. An amount obviously below what unemployment in most cases would pay.

I for one am working towards becoming self employed in hopes of at least providing shelter for my family of 4 and being able to eat at least one square meal a day. Good luck to all. Continue to work hard and secure as many certifications and licenses as time and resources will allow. And shame on those predator employers out there.

keep at it, what your dealing with is a small group in a technical field its not like you beinig a regular factory worker, in the maintenance field the group choosen from is smaller and takes longer to choose from as we need to view skills, lets just say if you were a operator and there are 6 million operators you compete with 6 million for one job, maintenance is different theres only 600 of us looking for 1 job opening, so companies tend to look hareder and take more time in choosing.

I agree with Montezz_99. I have worked as a multicraft tech and now as a maintenance supervisor I am in desperate need of 5 CNC maintenance technicians. I have been looking for sometime and have yet to find anyone that can answer some basic technical questions correctly. I have interviewed several candidates that have a long history performing maintenance however the demonstrated skill level leaves something to be desired. I have noticed several "maintenance men" cannot even read a schematic or identify parts in a technical manual. Many dont even bother doing their homework before an interview. You're goijng in to sell your skills make sure you showcase them.

My friend don't give up hope I have just recently found a job at an Apartment maintenance tech job, we have to look at jobs that may not be so desirable at this time, build your network thru indeed, and linkedin some one is going to call you you just have to remain positive. I was starting myself was it even worth it to go to college for a period of time your skills are in high demand, go a lot further then then newspaper and the computer who knows the next job may be around the corner. Don't quit keep your mind clear and focus on your craft Peace and Blessings.
