Electricians Job And Career Outlook

by Scott Rodgers

For doing electrical work, an electrician should have proper knowledge. For acquiring knowledge they undergo a training of four to five years. An electrician can become a general electrician, contractor, supervisor, independent business owner, commercial electrician, construction superintendent, project manager, industrial electrician and maintenance electrician.

Basically electricians prefer to become a maintenance electrician or construction electrician. There are also few electricians who are good in doing both types of work. A construction electrician is mainly involved in doing new fittings and providing electricity supply in newly build factory, building or home. On the other hand a maintenance electrician is involved in repairing damaged gadgets or fittings.

Electricians use special tools such as knives, drills, pliers, screwdrivers, saws and other tools to do their job. Some of the jobs done by an electrician could be risky so they have to wear the appropriate clothing for protection against an accident. Most states require an electrician to have a license.

Generally an electrician work for 40 hours in a week. But their working time is not fixed and they can be called anytime according to the requirement. In general there are three shifts in which electricians need to work.

A good electrician should have certain features like he should be physically fit, able to work on heights or in narrow spaces. They should be able to well recognize all the colors as they need to work with wirings having different colors. He can't do any mistake while attaching various wires. With a good coordination of hands and eyes, they can do the work well.

Electricians need to be very good at math and in solving problems. It is also good for them to be able to communicate in Spanish as well as English. There are a lot of Spanish workers in this work field and in construction. So it is good if an electrician also know Spanish as he can communicate better with them. This will help in doing the work faster.

Different electricians have different earnings according on their working experience and efficiency. They are paid according to number of hours they work. For one hour they could be paid from 12 dollars to more than 30 dollars. Motor vehicle part manufacturing companies usually pay high to their electricians.

The growth of electricians is expected to increase in the next few years due to economic growth and increase in population. More electricians will be needed for installing electrical systems and for maintenance services. Electricians need to be very smart at what they do as we rely on them for solving any of home and business related problem.
