If you’ve been working towards a license in the HVAC industry you know it’s tough. When you graduate classes you’re going to need some real world experience and you can’t just get it anywhere. Here are a few ideas for finding the right fit once you’re done with school:
Get Online: Check local listings using your ClearWirelessInternet.net to find out who’s hiring in your area. Technical job boards have posting for factories as well as manufacturers and you can find some smaller shops, too.
Talk to People: Go door to door, literally. No, not to clients but to actual firms you may want to work for. Introduce yourself and talk up your skill set – perhaps you can land a part time job or an apprenticeship to help you get to the next level.
Take a Job: If all else fails, take a job in a tangently related field. Whether it’s contracting or home building you can get some extra experience in other areas and hopefully transition to fulltime HVAC once you build up your clientele and make some industry connections.
