If you’re the type of person that likes to jump in and get the job done, automotive, HVAC, and welding are all potential careers that can be fun and engaging. But if you are having a hard time choosing just one avenue to pursue, consider doing a little bit of everything and become a “Jack of All Trades” and pursue the Industrial Technician field! This career is for those who love doing something different every day and learning new things as they go.

What is an Industrial Technician?

An Industrial Technician is the guy (or gal!) that can figure out how to fix nearly anything! Industrial Technicians get to do a variety of things on any given day. As an Industrial Technician, you may be working on manufacturing equipment in a factory, or you could be tasked with repairing heavy machinery at the mines. There is high demand for workers with this skill set because businesses that use any kind of mechanics or machinery could use the help of someone trained to maintain and repair that machinery. According the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, the job outlook for Industrial Technicians is bright with a projected growth rate of 16% from 2014-2024. The job growth in this trade is higher than the 7% growth rate average for all other occupations! This is great news for anyone thinking about becoming an Industrial Technician!
