Electricians install electrical infrastructures in buildings and homes to supply power to everything from a light bulb to a central air conditioning unit. A career as an electrician can be very lucrative if you can open your own contracting business, that is, of course if you get the appropriate needed license.
Electricians generally do a three or four year apprenticeship and need to pass state exams to become licensed.
Electricians have needed to become more computer savvy as computer technology has advanced. Blueprints and schematics for projects are now made up and generally viewed on software packages on computers.
Electricians also need to be patient, level headed and capable of following detailed plans and safety regulations.
