newbie, any deaf electrician here?

Hey guys and gals,

I'm a newbie here, just registered. I'm a recent graduate of a 2 year electrical program as an electrician trainee at a community college in southern california. I find jobs incredibly difficult to find, and since I am deaf, I find that it is very hard to get jobs as a trainee with the various electrical contractors. most of them are not willing to work it out with me. I wonder if there are any deaf electricians here or do you know of any company or city or some place that is adapt at hiring deaf electricians? I am fluent in ASL, can also speak pretty good at times but writing notes is usually easier in noisy environments. Thanks.

Hello, Light Electric. I am a deaf master electrician and certified solar PV installer in Texas. Glad to see more and more deaf electricians or those who wants to become one. There is a group I established on Facebook called Society of Deaf Electricians and Specialists. Join us there!

Did you find a job with saying “electrician helper”? You should, because you don’t have experiences on job training yet, Or you would join union apprenticeship for become an electrician for 4 years to get a journey electrician license. With benefits and pay too.
