I am an apprentice electrician from Seattle. I am nearing the end of my 5 year apprenticeship and considering opportunities outside the U.S. I've done mostly large scale commercial work, including remodeling several Microsoft facilities. I'm a union member, and would like to know if their are opportunities to work overseas as a union electrician.

I am comprehendable of most electrical wiring schemes. So, as for railway signals, I have yet to acquire that on the job experience. I imagine that it is just as enthusiastically challenging as is the different facets of the electrical trade. If you are as interested in my capablities as I am in this possibility, then I hope to receive an application invitation from you very soon.

Thank You!

My husband called them and talked to them, they are Non-Union and only pay about $17/hrs. you would only make about $80,000/year. We are in Moses Lake, WA and lots of Union Jobs with IBEW 191 available. Jobs are great here right now and he is making more than that at the moment, not worth risking your life. Plus no retirement and health insurance paid.

I'm interested in becoming an electrician, however, i've considered becoming a heavy-duty mechanic as well as a pipe fitter, could anyone tell me the advantages/disadvantages for these trades? I'm having a tough time deciding which of these three would best suit me. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

GM

There tends to be more work for electricians than pipe fitters. Looking around the jobs I've been on, there's been several electricians for every pipe fitter, and the demand just keeps growing. The opportunities for travel seem to be better than most other trades. It's a good balance between physical and mental work. Electricians have a lot of opportunities to start their own shops. I can't really compare it to being a heavy mechanic, because I know very little about the trade. I do know there were 2 ex-mechanics in my apprenticeship class, so I suppose they felt it was a better career.

If you decide to do it, I recommend going through the IBEW and becoming a commercial/industrial electrician. I did a little non-union residential before I got in the union, and it's not nearly as good a job.

all three of those career choices would be challenging and educational. but, if you think about long-term career options for these, one will stand out as a wiser choice, i think.
the electrical trade offers much diversity in terms of what you'll be doing in twenty years. you may be young and physically healthy now, but do you want to be working under large vehicles when your fifty, or pipefitting?
there are many opportunities within the electrical industry such as CAD drawing, estimating, fire alarm programming, security, engineering or systems design, teaching, PLC, other controls and interfaces, fiber optics, telecommunications, structured cabling system, instrumentation, and alot more.
if you have the opportunity to persue a union apprenticeship, that is your best bet. most of what i mentioned above is available more readily by being an IBEW member. the benefits,i.e; retirement, pension, annuity, medical insurance, educational and job resources are absolutely unmatched.
i hope this info is helpful in your decision making process. good luck to you.

Yeah, WA requires a license. As mentioned above there are several reciprocal states, but it doesn't look like yours is one of them.

I know there was some talk of letting IBEW folks transfer into our apprenticeship after Katrina, and if you know enough you can test out to skip some or all of our 5 years of school, but you'll still need 8000 hours to work as a journeyman, and hours worked in non-reciprocal states don't count. On the bright side, stating apprentice wages in Local 46 are over $18.

kbr is another extension of haliburton which is just about ran by yes the dick himself dick cheney, if you want to make his pockets fatter the go ahead and work for them but i was contacted by them alos and they only offered the most $84,000 for the year and you work just about 7/12's for bout 3 months straight and they will match plane ticket home up to the first $800.00. and no they do not pay any benefits that a normal union member working in the states would get so you pretty much are on your own out there, no representation at all. i could work nonunion not that i would and work that many hours in the states and make that much and not worry about getting killed by some iraqi. best bet is just hit the road and you could make in the upwards of $90-$100,000 for the year as a union memeber. lets support america and our troops not the dumbasses who got our troops there in the first place.

Thanks Jordan for the note I agree with you about the Dick. Back in 04 when all the travelers were comming home and they had killed the economy I went to Iraq rather than work for the rat at home. I lived directly with the solders and kept there lights on and there ac running as best as I could. Our people in uniform had very few comforts as these were not the megga camps and they were not there by choice but were sent.
I don't agree with most politics but I would go back again for the solders. If I can let me put this into words. You will never come home from any job with a greater feeling of satisfaction Knowing you didn't talk about how tuff it must be for those solders but you put your hand to the plow and made a difference, with your knollage of the trade, your sweat and your hands. It tells those solders that are in harms way yes I do care.
I do hope no one is afended by my note. Jeff

its tax free after you made $100k or so in the states there are many things that they dont tell you and you find out later after you are already there make sure you read all the fine print. kbr figured out how to get third party nationals to do the jobs also or else usually its in the range of
$100k-$150k with most companies
