Troubleshooting as a Valuable Skill
Troubleshooting is a logical process that can be applied to most any situation or piece of equipment to locate where a malfunction exists. Troubleshooting is not about memorizing any particular set of components, but rather applying a logical process.
Not only is troubleshooting an important life skill that can save time and money, it's also a skill that is highly valued by STEM recruiters. Many hiring managers specifically look for candidates with a good troubleshooting skills.
Troubleshooting consists of four steps:
- Verify there is a failure
- Check the simplest or most likely solutions first and retest
- Repair the problem and retest
Doesn't look very complicated, does it? The process itself is fairly straightforward but applying that logic to changing circumstances can take some practice.
If you consider yourself to be a logical person or if you feel you yourself have good troubleshooting skills, it may surprise you to learn that many people need to be explicitly taught to troubleshoot and almost everyone can use some practice to become more efficient at the process.
