TSG Career Highlight: Electrician and Energy Trades

Electrician and energy trade careers are expected to continue growing. There will be many opportunities in this industry as a large number of electricians retire and green energy companies continue making ambitious plans. The most common way to break into this industry is through education which is usually followed by an apprenticeship.

Electrician careers
Electricians generally focus on a construction or maintenance career although there are several who do both. Electricians who specialize in construction primarily install wiring systems in factories, businesses and new homes. Those who focus on maintenance generally fix and upgrade electrical systems and repair electrical equipment.

Career opportunities
The more experience an electrician has, the more opportunities come their way. Electricians can become supervisors, project managers, construction superintendents and more. There is also the option to become a business owner, although this does require a special electrical contractor’s license.

  1. One other issue is when you are in a situation where you don’t have a cosigner then you may want to try to wear out all of your money for college options. You will find many grants and other free college funding that will supply you with money to support with university expenses. Thx for the post.
