Why Young People Should Become Plumbers
Z PLUMBERZ is helping young people get a head start in one of the most lucrative trades
As college tuition continues to rise and the jobs in corporate America that a college degree once promised become more and more uncertain, millions of young people are looking for an alternative.
One of best ways for a young person to carve out a lucrative career path for themselves in 2021 is to go into the trades – and plumbing might be the best trade of all.
“When I was young, all you heard was ‘college, college, college,’” says Matt O’Rourke, President and Founder of Z PLUMBERZ. “Now, you’re starting to hear about the trades. Plumbing is an excellent trade to get into because everyone needs a plumber and it requires a high degree of intelligence, skill, and training to master. Being a plumber is also one of the most lucrative opportunities.”
Z PLUMBERZ has an Apprenticeship Program to Help Young People Get a Headstart in the Industry
While becoming a master plumber can take up to 10 years, attaining that certification also comes with extremely high rewards. Master plumbers can earn more than six figures and have a skill set that is always in demand, no matter the state of the rest of the economy.
To help young people get a headstart in the industry and set them on a lucrative career path, Z PLUMBERZ launched an apprenticeship program.
“School wasn’t always the best fit for me,” says Jason McComb, a current apprentice and office administrator at Z PLUMBERZ. “I wanted to go into the trades and use my hands since I’ve always been a hands-on learner. I knew I didn’t want to go into college debt. I just think everyone has their own talent, and with Z PLUMBERZ, I’m getting job experience and training to one day take over this business.”
Devin Statetzny, at 19 years old, contacted Z PLUMBERZ directly for an opportunity in the apprenticeship program. He says, “I enjoyed working with my hands and was recommended to start off in the trades industry as a plumber because of all the different career paths it can lead you to. The opportunity here is endless.”
Plumbing is all about helping people and our apprenticeship program starts with drain cleaning, an emergency service that homeowners need fixed right away. Our program will teach you not only technical skills, but also develop your people and professional skills. Our goal is to put you on the path of success and enter a career that will enable you to earn a great living.
“Z PLUMBERZ is a great place to work and great work to do, even though not a lot of people do it and everyone needs it,” Statetzny says. “It’s a great industry to work in and a great service to provide. I hope to keep developing my skills until I’m a Master Plumber. It’s a huge opportunity and a huge market, and eventually, I want to own my own business.”
