The last stop on my paper route was a Sunoco Service Station. I would leave the paper there, and just hang around, watching the guys, seeing what was going on. When I turned 15, they offered me a job. In college, I earned a full electrical engineering degree, but I didn’t really want to do it at the time. So when I got out of Villanova, I went to work as a service technician at a Volkswagen dealership. About 18 years ago, we built the facility where we are now and we’ve lived happily ever after.

The field is expected to grow as fast as the average for all occupations through 2014, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Education: Accredited schools and apprenticeships provide essential instruction and training for people who want to work in the heating, ventilation, air-conditioning, and refrigeration industry. Once a student gains the required skills, she or he can take industry examinations, which often lead to better-paying jobs. Work Environment: Even though technicians often work indoors, work conditions can be uncomfortable.

With an associate’s degree, a graduate can work as an electrician in industrial machine installation and repair, electrical/electronic equipment repair, mechanical control and valve repair, programmable controller installation and repair, electrical/electronic equipment assembly, electromechanical systems repair, and automatic machinery maintenance. Typically, those starting in the field need to combine classroom work with hands-on experience in the form of an apprenticeship. Those in associate’s degree programs may have to add on a few years to finish apprenticeship training in order to gain a thorough knowledge of all aspects of the trade.
