Chicago 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.

About Working in Chicago, Illinois

If you're going to Chicago to experience "da Bears," deep-dish pizza, and windy streets, native Chicagoans say "fogetta 'bout it!" While these have made Chicago famous, you'll find many locals eating thin-crust, tavern-style pie. Plus, the city isn't on any list of the windiest cities in the U.S.—a local newspaper named it "The Windy City" after the Chicago elite's propensity toward boastfulness and self-promotion. And while the Chicago jobs list (hit jobs, that is) includes notorious mobsters from Chicago like Al Capone, John Dillinger, and Baby Face Nelson, linguists are noticing that the "Chicago accent" is disappearing.

However, there's a reason Condé Nast Traveler has named Chicago the "best big city in the U.S." Chicago is home to top universities, including Northwestern University, Wheaton College, and Valparaiso. And if you're looking for Chicago jobs, you can relocate to any one of the city's unique neighborhoods, such as North Center with its cozy Irish pubs and breweries or Uptown, the lively entertainment district. For those who want to live further out from the city, you can also find jobs in popular suburbs including Cicero, Oak Park, and Evanston.
