If you were to ask a young child what they want to be when they grow up, we’re convinced that you would get many different (and entertaining) answers. If we had to guess, we’re sure some popular responses would include a fireman, a police officer, a ballerina, or even an astronaut. You may even have an occasional humorous answer like a dinosaur thrown into your survey responses (trust us-we’ve heard it before). But if you asked a child what they wanted to be when they were an adult, one career that might not come up too often is a plumber.
While there’s certainly nothing wrong with growing up and aspiring to be a dancer or a leader in law enforcement, we have to say, that there is a lot of great things to be said about the profession we are in. Not many people, both children and adults alike, may comprehend the joy plumbers get out of their line of work. This is a job where coming to work every day really doesn’t FEEL like a job; it feels like a true pleasure and a wonderful way to spend the day, both in the work that we perform and the lovely people we meet. Here are a few reasons why a career as a plumber is something you won’t regret considering:
You’ll LOVE what you do
What’s not to love about a profession that guarantees you variety, independence, social interaction, and respect? If that doesn’t sound like a rewarding thing to be doing every day, we don’t know what is!
Student Loans? What’s That?
Student debt is something that can be crippling for countless graduates for years after they bid farewell to their alma mater. Choosing a trade profession such as plumbing often doesn’t require a four-year degree. According to The Plumber, you can instead attend a community college or vocational school to get the skills required to become a successful plumber. Not only will you spend significantly less money on education, but you can easily and simultaneously enter an apprenticeship where you can actively earn money while you study.
You’ll Always Have a Job
There are certain professions that are always in demand; from a doctor to a mechanic, People are always going to be in need of medical attention, and people’s vehicles will always need fixing. A plumber also falls into this category! It’s a job that requires a certain level of expertise, an expertise that is always in need and that always requires professional attention.
