To the Editor:
Thank you for the article referencing CarreerCast.com in the April 26, 2014 issue. However in your article and nowhere on Career’s site did I find any reference to HVAC-R, Plumbers, etc. According to the HVAC News there is approximately 15,000 unfilled openings every year in the HVAC field. Dirty? Yes, A Trade? Yes, Well paid? With the proper training, very probable. Does the average high schooler know about the openings, NO. We all need to push harder for the trades, and less for the mortgages accumulated with a college education. I have been an HVAC-R Tech for 40 plus yrs. and do not find it a disagreeable job at all, and well paid at that.
