Outsource employs over 300 technicians weekly on jobsites across the continental United States. We work with all the national system integrators and all the major electrical contractors and many of our technicians go on to permanent placement opportunities.Structured Cabling is an excellent entry point into the construction industry and it allows for a diverse amount of options when it comes to choosing a career path.Outsource specializes in training people looking to transition into a skilled trade and we do it at no charge.
Chris Trevino, an Operations Analyst for the company, explains why structured cabling is a viable career option. “The construction industry is always in the needs for new talentand this has never been more true than it is today. In fact, The Bureau of Labor Statistics announced in 2014 that it expects to add nearly 10 million new jobs to the U.S. economy trough 2024. A lot of those jobs will go to skilled trade techniciansin the construction industry and structured cabling is a great skill to know.As you gain experience and knowledge, you will be given more responsibility on the job and have the opportunity to transition into other areas of structured cable, including A/V and security installation”
