Does the idea of endless employment opportunities appeal to you? Female electricians can make a valuable contribution by helping to alleviate the severe skilled labor shortage in the construction industry. IEC Chesapeake gives women the opportunity to pursue a career that’s interesting, challenging and well-compensated.

Wider Opportunities for Women (WOW)

Tap into unlimited potential. For more than 45 years, WOW has helped women embark in the non-traditional skills trades. In our efforts to increase female representation in the electrical industry, IEC Chesapeake regularly recruits WOW’s clients. Many of these women complete our apprenticeship program and are successfully placed in well-paying positions with our member contractors. WOW helps women build a bridge to economic security, and IEC Chesapeake helps them bridge the gap into our growing and evolving industry.
