Please tell us your name, role, and your background
My name is Tabatha Sandoval and I am a commercial/industrial electrician at IBEW Local 617 in San Mateo, California. I have been in the construction industry now for a little over 3 years.
How did you get involved in construction?
I have a love for cars. I believe that the industry of automobiles is heading to full electric one day. I wanted to get into the industry and so I started studying electronics engineering and absolutely loved the theory. However the time at the computer just drove me crazy, as I am not one to sit well. Someone suggested becoming an electrician instead, that I definitely would not be sitting much in that career. I looked into it immediately and soon thereafter transferred my studies.
