Firefighting is clearly an exciting and sometimes dangerous profession.  With proper training, though, danger can be minimized.  This job is all about providing a critical public safety resource to communities by engaging in a speedy and skilled response to emergencies of all sizes.  Firefighters help put out or control fires, and assist other public safety officials in situations such as car accidents and medical emergencies.  This job is filled with energetic and helpful men and women who like to help people.  A firefighter is highly trained and works in close coordination with a crew of equally well trained people in a job that requires excellent teamwork.  Firefighters will always be in demand to help protect their communities.

Plumbing is another interesting career option for smart, ambitious people who are not interested in the college path.  Plumbers generally go through four to five years of training in an internship program that includes both on-the-job work experience as well as hundreds of hours of plumbing courses in school before getting a journeyman plumber license.  Once licensed, plumbers work on a variety of projects, some focussed on larger industrial work and many others on smaller homebuilding projects.  Yet others work mostly on service and repairs of existing homes and plumbing equipment.  A plumber can earn a very good income once he or she is an experienced journeyman or master plumber.  This is a job that will always be in demand.
