An electrician may perform maintenance work in industrial plants, office buildings, hospitals, or public buildings. Over half of all electricians work in the construction industry. Because the need for electrical services is widespread, jobs for electricians are found in all parts of the country and almost all industries.
Much of the demand for electricians will result from growth in the economy and population. Electricians will be needed to help maintain wiring in existing buildings. They will also be needed to help add wiring to new buildings. In addition, new technologies should increase the need for electricians. For example, many houses and offices will need new wiring for computers. Plus, some factories are adding robots. Electricians will be needed to install them.
