Hi I am 26 year old, GED grad still living with parents. I am really in need of a career. I have been interested in the electrician trade for awhile. I am wondering where to start and what to expect. I do work a night job in a restaurant so my days are open. Is the electrician field good to get into in california? I am hoping if I decide to move forward with this, that i can land a good job before Im 30, and be able to support myself. If anyone has experience or tips for me, I would really appreciate it.

If your a hard worker I would go to the local ABC office and sign up. You'll always be able to find a job. Go union if you think you'll just be mediocre and want to make a career working off the books.

consider looking around during the day Electrical Contractors, electrical motor shops see if they're hiring helpers. enquire your local Junior College see where the closest electrical courses are, donate time on the weekends your local Habitat for Humanity get your residential experience. construction management and business courses also,
