Wind Energy Industry Workers

Advancement Prospects

Advancement prospects vary by career. For example, wind turbine service technicians advance by earning higher salaries, taking on managerial responsibilities, or becoming engineers (after the completion of a bachelor’s degree in engineering). Engineers and scientists might open their own consulting firms or seek employment with larger companies. With a Ph.D., engineers and scientists can become college professors or oversee environmental-impact and site suitability studies. Trades workers and office workers typically advance by receiving pay raises and managerial duties. By returning to school, construction workers such as electricians or welders can become construction managers or open their own contracting businesses.
