I am considering a few different careers, one being a commercial/industrial electrician. What is the average yearly salary for a commercial/industrial electrician. My understanding is that they make more than residential electricians, is this true? Also I have heard there are more positions available for C/I as opposed to R. If you become a C/I electrician, can you also do residential work or must you get a seperate license and thus more training?
I have a friend who's trying to help me get into a job at the mill he works at as an Industrial Electrician and if I can get on he's hoping to get me into an apprenticeship. So my question would be while doing all this if going to school for an Industrial Engineering degree would apply knowledge I'm learning and classes that the Electrician apprenticeship would require or if it's kind of a waste to go towards both.
I am an Industrial Electrician. I am looking for employment in this field. I am interested in a job which has a rotation like 35 in 35 out. All applications have a field with salary expectancy and I don't want to sound greedy but also would like to have a good idea as how much to expect. I also have Firefighting and First Responder experence will this help me land a good job with a good company.
I can either become an industrial electrician or go to college and pursue a bachelor of business administration. I could also go into electrical engineering. What is your take?
Between sounds(low-voltage), residential, and industrial electricians, which one of them gets paid the most? Also, people say how many old man have you seen in this trade? So the question is how physical is the work and what kind of physical work is it? And what happens when they get old(about 50 yrs old) but still have bills to pay?
Somebody on answers suggested that fiber-optics, fire alarms--which is low-voltage--is a good choice, is it true? Do they get paid more? Thanks!
I need to apply for my post secondary very soon and i plan on doing a skilled trade such as industrial electrician or metal fabricator, etc. Im wondering which skilled trade currently has the most demand in Canada. I don't want to come out of post secondary and have a very hard time finding a job.
Wanted to move back to be near family. Thinking of applying for the skilled worker visa. I am a north american certified industrial electrician working on my AAS industry Maintenance and management. I was told by my friends in Canada said that it is on a shortage list. I was wondering if this is a good path to get PR and eventually citizenship. I know that inte US a work visa can get your foot in the door and help you a lot when applying for PR. Is it the same way for Canada?
Aircraft maintenance technician or industrial electrician in Canada? Care to state why you think which is better?
I work as a industrial/commercial electrician and was wondering how safe it was to continue this work. Falling at the job site is not the best thing to do. I start physical therapy tomorrow to get fitted with a AFO splint which is supposed to help with walking, will that help the ankle roll too or do I need something else?
I am about to finish my sophomore year in college for computer engineering. I have been doing ok, but not great (about a 2.8 gpa). So far my parents have invested $20,000 in my schooling here. I will have to go for 5 more semesters and it will cost them another $20,000 and myself $10,700 because I don't want to ask them to pay for the 9th semester, and scholarships run out after the 8th semester.
I have been having doubts about if this is what I really want to do. I do enjoy learning, math, and technology, but I also like working with my hands. I haven't really gotten into the core computer engineering classes yet, but it seems like most days would be spent working on code or circuits from behind a desk. Although not a terrible job option, I am beginning to think I don't want most of my work days to be behind a computer screen at a desk.
I just recently started to look at different job options, and an electrician seems to be a great option for me. There is an educational/mathematical side to it, and also a practical "get your hands dirty and do work" side of it. It seems most days would be spent out in the field actually doing things instead of designing things from a computer. Also, with an apprenticeship I gain money instead of losing it. I don't know if I would want to be a lineman, residential, or industrial electrician though. I also had over a 4.0 high school gpa which is what they ask for when applying. The reason my college gpa is so low is because I struggled with upper level calculus/physics and got a few Cs in those classes.
I have $11,000 saved from detasseling in summers and a $3,000 motorcycle. I'm beginning to think I should buy a small house/rent an apartment, get a car, and get an apprenticeship as an electrician. It's scary though, and I don't know if it is the best option. If I leave college now, I will lose my $10,000 annual scholarships that I am currently getting, and couldn't ask my parents for tuition money if I decided to return.
My Fiancee used to have Canadian and US citizenship but had to renouce her Canadian citizenship for a job. I am an Industrial Electrician and have been looking into US/Canadian Electrician crossover classes (To reinstruct me on the Canadian way to do things in my trade).
How would someone in a non professional field (Non Business) go about finding a job. I am sure my Fiancee can find a job as she has two degrees, one from a Canadian University.
I'm studying to become an electrical engineer, to me being an electrician was slightly boring and didn't look very challenging, especially compared to what I am doing at college at the moment. To me it seems like a boring trade, full of ugly old men that charge a fortune for bodging your electrics, when I was in college last year training as an electrician, the course was full of negative people that constantly complained, especially old men that hate kids. I was just wondering, is an industrial electrician more interesting than a domestic electrician? At first it seemed like an interesting job but now it is starting to look as if it is a simple and boring trade that pays little. Do you agree?
I live on the border at Buffalo . I have family in toronto and friends there (Dad was a citizen before I was born but got US citizenship and renounced his Canadian Citizenship for a job). I go almost every other week to hang out. I want to immigrate to Canada and eventually get my Citizenship.
I dont really have the money for a 4 year college so I went to a Applied Technical College in Tennessee, where my mom is from. I am now an Industrial Electrician, certified and all. Some of my friends say trying to immigrate to Canada is impossible unless you have a PhD or are a refugee. This is putting me down, I want to be with my family. I am trying to look for a job but most want me to be a resident already.
Is it unrealistic for me to get a Canadian work Visa or Residency?
I will be going to college soon and i don't know what i want to do. I want a great paying job for at least a bachelors or masters degree. Can any one please help me?
I'm doing a math project about the six trigonometric functions, and I have to look for three careers or jobs that involve the use of at least one or more of the six trigonometric functions.
(Six Trigonometric Functions: cos, sin, csc, sec, cot, tan)
Thank You. :)
I just graduated from the electronics engineering technician program at Niagara College. Everywhere I have applied to jobs all around the world and the only responses Ive recieved explain taht I need more experience. What did some of you do right out of school? I was set to join the military but health problems are now keeping me out indefinitely. Where is the best place in the world to get an entry level job for electronics?
Please forgive the grammar and typing mistakes.
I am currently planning on going to a community college for Industrial Maintenance and become an electrician.. I was planning on continuing my education after that and go for maybe electricial engineering. Would that be the wisest way to go about my goals or should I just go straight for electrical engineering?.. Also what are some good electrical engineering colleges or universities in NW Indiana?
I'm going into the air force under electrical systems and plan to be an electrician when i get out. How likely is it that I will be able to find work as an electrician?
I have narrowed my choices to the following careers I would like to do:
Heavy Duty Mechanic or
I love mechanics and like doing math, I would like to work outside in the field for some time as well. Which job is the most enjoyable and rewarding in the long run? Most interesting? Most job opportunities? I will be looking for work in BC or Alberta.
What certifications do you need, do you need to go to trade school, can you self-teach? I've always liked playing with circuits and tinkering with electronics, and think it might be interesting to make a career out of. Also, how much would an average electrician earn?
