People that love problem solving and advanced technology. The electrical field is constantly changing so electricians must stay up to date on the latest technology.
An industrial electrician often does inspections, run electrical tests, cleans contacts or circuit boards and ensures all electrical systems are grounded. When an electrical system fails, electricians are responsible for troubleshooting and solving the problem.
Electricians generally learn their trade through an apprenticeship but they can also start their careers by attending a technical school. Apprenticeships are typically four years in length and include wiring, electricity fundamentals, electrical controls, blueprint reading and electrical code. The need for electricians is projected to grow 20 percent by 2022.
