Line Installers and Cable Splicers

Employment for line installers and repairers is expected to grow 7 percent, more slowly than the average for all careers through 2022, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). An expected wave of retirements (especially in the electrical industry), the need for preventive maintenance on telecommunications and electrical infrastructure, and increasing demand for electricity and telecommunications services from a growing population will create a need for workers in the field. In addition, the DOL reports that the "growth of the Internet will require more long-distance fiber-optic lines, including interstate and undersea cables."
