TJ’s Answer

If you are interested, electrician is not a bad profession. When a lot of software or soft-skill based jobs may be taken by AI/robots in near future, hard-skill based jobs will survive.

Be prepared to be an electrician, just like to be any professional, one thing is extremely important: training yourself to be more creative, besides mastering the knowledge of your profession. A LinkedIn research shows that, the #1 required skill in all professional fields is "Creativity". Be creative is the easist way to excel in your jobs.

Hello Raheem,
The 2 question you posted are not related. An electrician and an electrical engineer work totally in different field (please read this post: https://www.careervillage.org/questions/659607/how-hard-is-it-to-become-an-electrition)

I do not have statistics in for the industry trend for electrician (nation wise,) but the demand for electrician is high in my area with a lot of new construction projects going on at this time.

"What didn’t you know prior to your position as an electrical engineer that you wish someone had told you? " I do not have an electrical engineer degree, but when my son got into this major at the UW, he told me something that I did not know: There was a guy with an electrical engineer degree from Princeton University who started an online business in his garage (with a the same name as a river in South America) and now he does not have to do anything but spends the money he made from this company. Even though this is a rarity, an electrical engineer degree is very valuable and can open doors to greater opportunities.

I hope this help.
Anthony
