What Electricians Do
Electricians install, maintain, and repair electrical power, communications, lighting, and control systems in homes, businesses, and factories.

Work Environment
Electricians work indoors and outdoors in nearly every type of facility. Almost all electricians work full time, which may include evenings and weekends. Although the work is not as dangerous as other construction occupations, potential injuries include electrical shocks and burns, cuts, and falls.
Although most electricians learn through an apprenticeship, some start out by attending a technical school. Most states require electricians to be licensed.

Work Environment
Electrical and electronics engineers work in industries including research and development, engineering services, manufacturing, telecommunications, and the federal government. Electrical and electronics engineers generally work indoors in offices. However, they may have to visit sites to observe a problem or a piece of complex equipment.
