Fiber Optics Technicians
Little employment change is expected for telecommunications line installers and repairers through 2018, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Despite this prediction, there should continue to be good employment opportunities for fiber optics technicians. Digital transmissions will soon be the norm for telecommunications—not only do modern offices require data communications systems, but cable companies are investing in fiber optics to offer digital TV and cable, as well as quality phone service. Also, the cost of fiber is dropping, which means more companies will invest in fiber optics. As a result, experienced fiber optics assemblers and installers will find plenty of job opportunities.
