Industrial Mechanics or Millwrights are the true jacks-of-all-trades. Since they install, repair, overhaul and maintain a huge range of machinery, they need a very wide skill set to effectively do their job. Many Millwrights are electricians, plumbers, machinists and mechanics, all rolled into one.
As a Millwright, you need to have a mechanical aptitude, enjoy working with machinery and possess strong trouble shooting skills because you’re often working on one-of-a-kind machines that very few people can understand. Millwrights also need excellent communication skills, good eye-hand coordination, strength and agility.
