For many people, earning a college degree is critical to get where they need to be in their career. Others go to college for the experience of “finding themselves,” taking many classes to learn what they’re interested in. But regardless of the reason, college is an unattainable option for people who lack the funds but don’t want to be saddled for decades with student loans. Trade industry careers are a great option.
Fortunately, not every career requires a bachelor’s degree. The world of trade industry careers is booming, with plenty of opportunities available right here at Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric in South Florida. Read on to determine whether a career in the trade industry is the right path for you.
While many careers teach you valuable skills and provide a living wage (with benefits!), trade industry careers are always in demand. Trade schools are also significantly cheaper than state colleges, though other jobs have on-site training to show you the ropes. And the best part? Trade industry professionals at Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric make $72,000 – $100,000 or more annually!
Here is just a sampling of those rewarding careers to consider:
We all use plumbing on a day-to-day basis. From flushing the toilet, to cooking, to washing clothes and dishes, water is the stuff of life. A broken dishwasher, shower, or clogged toilet can be a big inconvenience, if not a huge disaster. Most of us require the services of a plumber at some point, as some issues are just too big or complex to handle on our own. Plumbers not only fix appliances that use water, but also install and maintain them.
As a plumber at Art, you could be paid for the time spent training, and earn up to $100,000 annually.
In this industry, you would be responsible for maintaining, installing, and repairing appliances like heaters, air conditioning units, and refrigerators. Since most people depend on these units for comfort and food, it’s a very big deal if they stop working! HVAC technicians typically earn $72,000 – $100,000 a year or more at Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric.
Where would we be without electricity? For most of us, it would mean no ability to cook, watch Netflix, charge our computers (to use for work or entertainment), and no heat or air conditioning. Electricity was perhaps never more vital to our existence than during the pandemic, when many people had to move their work and education online at home. Without functioning electricity to charge our laptops, we’d have no way to write and turn in school assignments or participate in critical Zoom meetings.
The world of electrician jobs is perhaps the most popular and diverse in the trade industry, from inside and outside work, and commercial to residential. This career path again, ranges from $72,000 – $100,000, depending on the company, and includes compensated on-site training.
Still need more reasons to consider a trade career? The following benefits should be enough to persuade you:
College is expensive, even with scholarships and part-time jobs. It’s not uncommon for graduates to be paying off student loans for decades. Trade schools, on the other hand, are far more affordable for the average person.
No unpaid internships here: trade industry careers pay you for all your required training.
Many jobs today require more than one higher education degree for barely more than minimum wage. Not trade industry careers: they pay just as much, if not more than other jobs out there, and no college degree is necessary.
