Rewarding Careers In Plumbing, Pipefitting, and Steamfitting


Choosing the Plumbing, Pipefitting, and Steamfitting Trades Can Help Lay the Groundwork for a Rewarding Career.


The recent “Great Recession” created disillusionment among many college-educated individuals as they found their degrees leading to little or nothing in terms of employment prospects. Compounding this nationwide calamity is the well-documented student debt crisis which finds countless numbers of graduates carrying debt so crippling that many have wondered if they’ll ever be able to pursue the “American Dream”.

Not all young people have had to face this disillusionment.  A select group of individuals, those seeking to become plumbers, pipefitters, and steamfitters, saw the inherent value of an education in the trades.  This group fared better because they chose to enter trade-based professions that featured far greater employment opportunities. This decision has paid dividends for them that greatly exceed those of many college graduates because their skills make them highly employable and highly desirable, as evidenced in this recent U.S. Department of Labor report.Rewarding Careers In Plumbing, Pipefitting, and Steamfitting
