Hi guys! This is my first post. Anyways I am currently attending Vatterot Technical College for being an Electrician. So far i'm half way through and have completed my General, Residential, and half of commercial..still have 20 weeks of industrial after that. I then plan on going on to getting my Associates Degree in Industrial Electricity.

Anyways, with going to school for this, what kind of jobs should I expect? Around what pay should I expect? Just wanting to get an idea so I can have a figure to compare.

I would like to get in to a union job, but I'm not sure how to do that since I didn't go through their training. Anyways if you could help me out on those questions, or have any ideas on how I can get in to a union job, or any advice or experiences, please let me know! Thanks a lot guys!
