There is an unfortunate stereotype in the electrical industry, and construction in general, that this is “man’s work.” Nothing could be further from the truth! Some of the best electricians in our industry are women and an increasing number of women are joining the ranks of the IBEW, attracted by the great pay, benefits and by the team environment.
If you or a woman you know are interested in a career as an electrician, visit the Electrical Training Center at www.nietc.org or explore your options through one of the many great organizations that help women get into high paying construction jobs like Oregon Tradeswomen. Be a part of the industry that is leading the way in sustainable technology, “wiring a green tomorrow.” It’s the best decision you’ll ever make.
