I get asked a lot about the different types of electricians that are out there so this episode breaks down the different market segments of this trade, and what types of environments each electrical job entails.
There are 2 main segments to this trade, construction and service. Within those 2 segments of electrical work, there are 3 main sub-categories that are the same on either side – either residential, commercial, or industrial. There are definitely more options than these within the electrical field but they are so specialized that they don’t often allow the person in them to do anything else in the trade. For example there are automotive electrician, marine electricians, pool electricians, guys that just do solar, sign electrician, etc…they’re pigeonholed to the specific environment they’re in rather than being interchangeable across the industry.
