Several generations of young people have grown up thinking that the only way to get ahead was with a four-year college degree. But now, there is a shortage of labor in the skilled trades, and the world is realizing what some of us knew all along: skilled trades like plumbing, HVAC and electrical offer stable, good-paying jobs with a fraction of the student debt from a four-year degree.
If you’re a young person looking at career choices or an adult looking for a career change, attending technical school for a skilled trades certification is a solid investment in your future.
If you think jobs in the skilled trades come with low pay, think again. NPR recently reported that 30 million jobs in the U.S. that don’t require a bachelor’s degree pay an average of $55,000 per year. Some of the young people interviewed in the article started work at $60,000 a year with plenty of raises on the way.
Of course, pay depends on the field, the location and the level of experience, but you get the picture. There is a good living to be made in the skilled trades.
But a career isn’t just about money. It’s about doing rewarding work that you enjoy. If you enjoy helping your neighbors right here in Philadelphia, being a respected member of the community and a trusted professional, a career as a skilled home service expert might be right for you.
