Across the country, gymnasiums and stadiums are filled with proud parents, family members, and friends. The strains of “Pomp and Circumstance” (the graduation march) echo in the air at graduation ceremonies. Our heartfelt congratulations to all of this year’s graduates. Now comes the tough part: choosing a career capable of giving you a comfortable future with the ability to land a job when you are finished.
This is where Sanborn’s Air Conditioning & Heating stands ready to help. Our industry as a whole is hanging help wanted signs out to find bright and talented candidates who want to work as HVAC service technicians.
If you’re worried about job security and earning a livable wage, consider these 2015 numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics regarding jobs in the heating, cooling, and refrigeration industry:
- Annual Median Pay: $45,110
- Median Hourly Pay: $21.69
- Projected 10-Year Growth: 14% (much faster than average)
It’s nothing more than supply and demand. Analysts say there is a shortage of technical workers, which is why so many companies are now hiring. The need among companies like Sanborn’s has never been greater.
When we hire young people, our focus is on finding a person with a positive attitude. Experience is great, but for Sanborn’s a great attitude and a willingness to learn is just as important
Our full-time employees have 100% of their medical insurance paid for. There is a career ladder in place, so new employees will know exactly what’s expected of them for career advancement.
Most of our HVAC technicians and mechanics come to us after a two-year program at a trade or technical school. You will be pleasantly surprised at the life and future you can build for yourself and for your current or future family as an HVAC specialist without a four-year college degree.
There are many reasons why Sanborn’s believes there is a bright future ahead. There are growing trends of energy efficiency and pollution reduction in our industry. It’s going to take skilled workers to upgrade or replace the millions of units already in use. Old refrigerants like R-22 refrigerant are being phased out because of environmental damage. Companies will have to hire more trained HVAC technicians to modify or replace those air conditioners and refrigeration units.
Graduates, the next step is up to you, but wait on that low-wage retail job or investing hundreds of thousands of dollars and four years into a college degree that you’re not excited about. Check out the opportunities at Sanborn’s Air Conditioning and Heating first.
