Once I told them that Heating, Ventilation, and A/C professionals go to university for 2 years instead of 4, and what their starting base pay was, then they stopped laughing
I am the proud father of several daughters, and now they are reaching the pre-teen and teen age where they need to beginning thinking about their futures, unlike most parents I have no agenda, and don’t want to force anything on my youngsters, I just want them to find a life that suits them and makes them glad, but to wit, both of us have been talking about university a lot, because their educators tell them they have to go to university, i explained that this is America, they don’t “have” to go to university or do anything else they don’t want to. I explained to them other options, like trade university to study Heating, Ventilation, and A/C repair, plumbing, or welding. They all that system was hilarious, because no a single in authority had ever told them it was okay for females to go into traditionally male dominated areas like Heating, Ventilation, and A/C. Once I told them that Heating, Ventilation, and A/C professionals go to university for 2 years instead of 4, and what their starting base pay was, then they stopped laughing. I’m glad both of us had that talk, because while it is important for them to go to university if they choose, they need to think that Heating, Ventilation, and A/C, welding, etc are all fantastic choices for females, both of us did a little research and truly found out that the heating and cooling industry has been actively seeking out females to work in the business. It is a bold current world, there are no boy tasks or girl tasks, and being an Heating, Ventilation, and A/C tech is a fantastic way to put food on the table regardless of gender.
