My friend, Chris, has written a great post about electrical drafter salaries. You can get the link here. The interesting thing is that this writer is the same person that has created a Facebook page called “Electrical Drafter”. I have to admit, I find it interesting that this post was shared more than once.
Chris has a point. You can find the link to his post here. The article describes the job as “Solving problems by combining the basic principles of 3D design, 3D modeling, drafting and drafting.” This description sounds a lot like a graphic designer, but the pay is much lower. The average electrical drafter makes $14 per hour, and the pay for a good electrical drafter is about $25,000 per year. That’s pretty good money.
Chris is right. Electrical drafters make a living that is better than what most would think. This comes in handy with any web design project, including any large-scale website design project.
The average electrical drafter is one of the most in-demand people in the world, and there’s a good reason for that. If you wanna make a living designing 3D models or drawings, then you have to be good at it. This is a very hard skill to master, but once you know how it’s done, it’s relatively easy to get good at it. The skillset for electrical drafters is very broad, and the pay is significantly higher.
In our industry we only pay for projects that are completed, and then we offer a rate that we think is fair. This is the way most large companies reward the best designers and developers. The difference between us and other companies is that we don’t pay a flat rate salary. We charge based on the type, quality, and amount of work that you put in.
Electrical drafters are highly skilled in the use of power tools, and a lot of it. Not only do they use power tools, but they also use the latest technology in the electrical industry. They use software and equipment that has been around for quite a bit, and they also work with the industry’s top suppliers.
That’s not to say that all electrical drafter jobs are easy, but for many, it’s a good way to supplement their income. It’s hard to say what the exact pay rate is for electrical drafters. It seems to vary by job, but it can be as high as $65,000 for a designer.
I think that the reason that most drafters are in electrical engineering is because they really love the electrical industry. Its not that they hate it, its just that their skills are in demand. Electrical engineers tend to specialize more in systems that deal with the electrical world. While electrical drafters tend to specialize more in the mechanical world, they tend to work with a lot of different things.
As you might have guessed, drafter/designer are not the only ones in trouble with salary. We also have electrical engineers. Electrical drafters are just one of the many groups that must pay their bills. The truth is that the electrical industry is a very lucrative one, and most of the drafters/designers/electrical engineers can make more money than any one person can make in their field.
Electrical drafters are the ones who build the electrical systems in our homes. With all the electrical work we do in our homes and offices, it’s no surprise that a lot of electricians work on the electrical systems in them. Electrical drafters are the unsung heroes of the electrical field, and no one can deny that.
