About Electrician

Electrician Jobs Overview

Without electricity, we would all be living in the dark ages. The complex wiring in residential homes, commercial buildings, and industrial establishments allows us to keep the lights on when it's dark and keeps essential machines and appliances running. It takes skilled electricians to ensure that buildings are wired properly and each circuit breaker and outlet works correctly. Electrician jobs are available to qualified job seekers with a knack for electrical infrastructure.

As an electrician, you'll be responsible for reading blueprints, installing and maintaining wiring, inspecting electrical components, and performing electrical repairs and replacements. And if you're looking for job security, you're in luck—the Bureau of Labor Statistics projects an 8% increase in new electrician positions within the next decade.

If you can't find exactly what you're looking for, you can increase your search for maintenance jobs by clicking on these similar positions:

Electrician Training and Skills

You don't need a college degree to become an electrician, but you do need a certain number of classroom hours and hands-on experience from an accredited technical or trade school. Electrician courses should cover basic electrical information, electrical circuits, and safety practices. You can get pre-apprenticeship certificate training (PACT) from the Home Builders Institute.

Most states also require electricians to be licensed. However, the hours of experience, exams, apprenticeships, and licensing requirements vary by state. When taking an electrician exam, you'll need to be prepared to answer questions about the National Electrical Code, state and local codes, and safety standards.

Aside from having the right credentials, employers look for electricians with the following skills and qualities:

  • The ability to recognize electrical wires by color.
  • The ability to think critically and diagnose problems.
  • Good customer service and communication skills.
  • Troubleshooting skills.
  • Physical strength and stamina.

Get a glimpse into what an electrician job looks like by reading Monster's electrician job description sample.

Update Your Electrician Resume

Are you ready to start applying for electrician positions? Be sure to update your resume first. Having a well-written resume that highlights your skills, credentials, and accomplishments will set you apart from the competition. Learn how to wire your resume for success by reading Monster's journeyman electrician resume sample. Although not every employer will ask for a cover letter, be prepared by referring to our cover letter samples and writing tips.

Interviewing for an Electrician Job

If you scored an interview with a potential employer, the next step is demonstrating your value and competency by crafting strong responses to their questions in advance. Before hiring electricians, employers may ask the following questions:

  • How are you usually involved in the construction process?
  • How do you stay organized?
  • Do you have any experience with computer-aided design (CAD)?
  • Do you have any related certifications, licenses, or registrations?
  • Are you familiar with local and state building and electrical codes?

How Much Do Electrician Jobs Pay?

It's good to know what you can expect to earn for your position in your area to make sure you're getting paid what you're worth. Electricians in the U.S. typically earn an hourly wage of $26.29. You can find out more by searching Monster's Salary Tools for electrician pay in your area. You can also find out where electricians are in the highest demand and potential next steps in your career path.
