Workforce Wednesday: Electrical careers

Published: Updated:

Daybreak’s Workforce Wednesday is helping Alaskans get on the fast track to a rewarding career.

Wednesday, Cari-Ann Ketteling, with the Alaska Process Industry Careers Consortium (APICC), visited the show to talk about how Alaskans can “earn and learn” a career in the state with the help of apprenticeship. Apprentice electrician, Feona Peter, joined Ketteling to talk about how the Alaska Joint Electrical Apprenticeship and Training Trust Program helped her decide on a career path.

“I tried different things,” Peter said. “I tried to go to college while I’m working and it didn’t seem to turn out very well. So I tried to go to Job Corps up there in Palmer. I was able to experience the electrical field and that’s where I seem to have fell in love with it.”

Apprentice electricians can make $35 to $50 per hour. Companies such as Chugach Electric Association, Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corp. and MasTec Network Solutions are hiring.
