Wanted, badly: Wind-tur­bine tech­ni­cians

Bloomberg Businessweek (Europe) - - CONTENTS - Jen­nifer Old­ham

Wind-tur­bine ser­vice tech­ni­cian is the job cat­e­gory pro­jected to ex­pand more than any other from 2014 to 2024, out­pac­ing health care and tech­nol­ogy, ac­cord­ing to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Sta­tis­tics.

Working in all kinds of weather, techs scale about 260 rungs on four lad­ders to the top of tur­bines, where they re­pair and main­tain equip­ment, trou­bleshoot soft­ware glitches, and patch cracks in the blades. They earn about $53,000 a year.
