When it comes to electricians, most people think that this profession is so in demand that they will never lose their job. But why do today's young people not want to be electricians? Even old electricians who have worked for many years quit and change professions?
1. Low wages are main reason
Now everything is growing except for salary, and salary of some electricians goes only to support their daily expenses. Who is ready to do it?
2. The work intensity is high and working day is long
Many electricians work on front lines, they have to work more than ten hours a day and they work almost non-stop, especially when working with high voltage, repair work and even continuous rotation.
3. The electrician has become a jack of all trades, doing everything
Some subdivisions and enterprises do not pay attention to electricians, especially amateurs led by specialists, let electricians do work that is not an electrician, but electricians become handymen.
4. The degree of danger is high, probability of electric shock is high
Electricity is a high-risk activity, and a little carelessness can be life-threatening. There are frequent reports of electricians dying from electrocution.
With low wages and high risks, is it true that electrician has no future?
The future of junior electricians is alarming
Electricians are also divided into 5 categories: elementary, middle, senior, technician and senior technician. The hiring threshold for ordinary electricians is low, and technical content is not too high. As long as you have obtained an electrician certification, you can work as an electrician.
Like general electricians, maintenance electricians, home improvement electricians, assembly electricians, etc., they are relatively replaceable, so wages are low and circulation is average.
With growth of new industries and demand for technology, if you don't make changes, you really should be eliminated and you won't even say hello.
High-class electricians have a bright future
The development of industrial automation, intelligence and technology is inseparable from electrical engineering specialties and is even closely related to electricity. Naturally, there are many promising industries.
Like many master electricians at present: PLC, single-chip microcomputer, CAD, DCS, instrument configuration, frequency converter, stepper motor, tension control and other main areas, these relatively high-tech electrical industries are direction that should be developed. , It is also a wage guarantee! Therefore, if you want to have a future, you must develop in these areas.
Although salary of an electrician is related to region and industry, key is still up to us. Only by constantly learning and discovering new things, we cannot be eliminated by this era.
There is still a long way to go, and electricians still have a long way to go in future. Let's support each other!
