When you graduate from Everest's Electrician career training program, you can be qualified to compete for jobs as an entry-level electrician's assistant or apprentice.* These are the first steps on a long, fairly standardized career path that can eventually take you to the level of journeyman electrician and, ultimately, master electrician.
Electricians are usually employed in either construction or industrial maintenance. There are a few electricians who work in both fields, but most focus on a single specialty. Electricians specializing in construction work install wiring systems in factories, businesses and new homes. Industrial electricians install, repair and upgrade electrical systems in factories, refineries and similar large-scale industrial facilities.
While it's difficult to predict the number of positions that can be available at any particular time, the American economy will always need qualified electrical technicians who know their craft. The more skills and experience you have, the greater your opportunities are for employment.
Factors that determine job openings can include local, regional and national economic conditions, especially home building activity. Demand for electricians tends to increase during economic expansions and drop during recessions.** The best way to take advantage of opportunities that arise is to get training from a school recognized for excellence.
