I'm fresh out of school. I know the basics and am trying to get my foot in the door. It just seems like the door is one-hundred times heavier than my foot. Why is it no one wants to hire people just out of school? I think that it's better that way seeing that you could teach them the way you want them to be taught. I have an HVAC certificate from my school in KCMO and am Universal certified from esco institute. Yet everyone asks for 3 to 8 years experience. Where is the HVAC business going to go if newcomers aren't allowed?
