Electricians are construction workers who specialize in building and repairing electrical systems for residential homes, commercial buildings, and other facilities. They are distinct from electrical engineers who design electrical systems. Electricians do more of the hands-on work.
Electricians always have a different work setting as they are hired to perform different jobs at different locations. It is great for someone who enjoys a change of setting.
Electricians often work outdoors and within houses or buildings to repair or install electrical systems and wiring. Most electricians work full-time for an electrical company and about 1 in 10 are self-employed. Depending on how busy the company is, electricians may sometimes work weekends and overtime. They may also respond to emergency calls on short notice.
