    Ok I finally at the end of my ET program. A few more lesson books, and 1 exam and I graduate with my career diploma. I am going to go for my Associates degree in industrial electronics and electrical systems. Anyway do you think I can get a lower end ET job somewhere like say in the 15 or 16 dollar an hour range? I just need that to get through the next faze of school that will take roughly a year. I live in NJ if that helps you answer. Thanks for any help.

    It wouldn't hurt to bookmark all the nuclear utility companies websites, there is a massive wave of people retiring weekly, and these companies are scrambling to find qualified people. I was told I would have had the job as an I&C tech apprentice if I had the full degree at the time I applied. Look at Excelon, Duke, Southern, SCANA, Entergy, TVA, PPL etc. I was hired in maintanence specifically because of my ET degree.

    Good luck!

    I would suggest you have a resume at these places before the jobs actually get posted, also, having expierence as an outage worker is a big plus. Check out sun-tec.

    My resume has been up there for a while on one of the big NJ electric companies, JCP&L. I just updated now that I graduated or I'm about to.
