Is It A Good Time To Consider A Career As An Electrician?

At Skilled Trades Partners, we’re answering that question with a resounding—wait for it—Yes!

STP has plenty of unfilled skilled trades jobs to fill, and many of them are for electricians of all skill levels.

But, just to be safe, we went to the Bureau of Labor Statistics to verify our information:

How to Become an Electrician

Most electricians learn through an apprenticeship, but some start out by attending a technical school. Most states require electricians to be licensed.


The median annual wage for electricians was $56,900 in May 2020 (last full year of available stats).

Job Outlook

Employment of electricians is projected to grow 9 percent from 2020 to 2030, about as fast as the average for all occupations.

About 84,700 openings for electricians are projected each year, on average, over the decade. Many of those openings are expected to result from the need to replace workers who transfer to different occupations or exit the labor force, such as to retire.

Those are some exciting stats on the expected growth in the skilled trades market for electricians. 

Regardless of where you’re at in your career as an electrician, there are some great job opportunities available. These are high-paying jobs with great benefits and opportunities for advancement.
