Students face tough choices after graduation

Mr. Electric® has reasons why you should be an electrician

WACO, Texas (May 27, 2014) – Graduation is over and it is time to decide where you want to go and what you want to do in life. Graduated students can get right to work, go to college or trade school. Mr. Electric wants to power students’ tomorrow by giving graduates reasons to become an electrician.

Get paid to learn
Students who pursue a career as an electrician earn money while receiving on-the-job training. Most trades require that you complete an apprenticeship program before you are allowed to be licensed and work on your own. This allows you to work, learn and get paid.

Competition is low
In an ever-competitive job market it is nice to have a job where you can always find work. By being a skilled electrician you will always be in demand.

The pay is shockingly good
Because it is not your regular suit and tie job most people don’t consider the monetary benefits of becoming an electrician. Being an electrician pays well and the more time you have in the more pay you can receive. Master electricians can make $100,000 a year.

Different day, different job
Everyday as an electrician is different. You will not be working on the same equipment all the time. This is good for people who like to do the same thing but break up the monotony by being in different places and working on different equipment, while following basic principles for working with electricity.
