Since the decline of manufacturing the traditional craft skills (machining and welding) provide few opportunities for employment. Electrical skills are in high demand however not enough to provide many electrician jobs. Expect to do more and receive less. The energy conservation, alternative energy fields are the future. Preventive and predictive maintenance will also see growth however you will want to learn enough to direct the program or risk being relegated to data collection. For survival be a lifelong learner and evolve with the industry. Mechatronics will be our new field as robotics takes over repetitive tasks in the next ten years.
