Share Article

Each year there are more Electricians that retire or just leave the industry to pursue other career paths than there are new people entering the trade.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, “As the population and economy grow, more electricians will be needed.In addition to jobs created by the increased demand for electrical work, many openings are expected to occur over the next decade as a large number of electricians are expected to retire.”

Each year there are more Electricians that retire or just leave the industry to pursue other career paths than there are new people entering the trade. With the demand for skilled Electricians now outpacing the supply, compensation levels are expected to increase as employers continue to get more aggressive in their recruiting strategies. There simply aren’t enough people to fill all the available Electrical jobs. Passive forms of advertising such as an employment ad in the local newspaper, job posting on a career site or a help wanted sign on the back of your trucks simply aren’t enough to attract new employees, and hiring a professional recruiter to track down skilled workers just isn’t within the budget for most companies.

Why Electrical Agent?

Recruiting experienced Electrical professionals has become a full-time job and yet very few companies can justify the expense of having a full-time recruiter on staff let alone the consistent advertising budget necessary for success.

It’s typically the Owner/Managers responsibility to not only place the employment ads, but also sift through all the resumes/applications to narrow the stack down to those people they want to talk to. It’s just one more thing to try and get done in their typical 60-80 hour work week.
