Electronics drafters can work in a variety of areas, such as electrical engineering and drafting service firms, medical industries, automotive and manufacturing industries, aviation, and even multimedia design.
Typically, electrical and electronics drafters work in office environments. Because they log many hours in front of the computer, back discomfort, hand and wrist problems and eyestrain are all common. A 40-hour workweek is standard. Although electronics drafters spend much of their time working on computers in an office, some may visit jobsites in order to collaborate with architects and engineers.
Electrical and electronic drafters almost always work indoors in comfortable air temperatures. Workers in this occupation spend most of their days sitting. They have contact with others by email, in face-to-face discussions, and by telephone. Being able to work well in a group or team is very important in this work.
On a typical workday, electronics drafters use their hands to handle, control, or feel objects or tools. This work environment requires employees to spend a fair amount of time making repetitive motions. Workers may experience stress in this job due to a lot of time pressure. Accuracy is extremely important in this work.
