    They are hiring all over the USA. Check the website. They have union/non-union, all kinds. Great way to get started.

    A good way to gain inside juice, is to join some of the trade org. find your local RSES chapter, pay the $90.00 fee and become a member,besides the learning opportunities, there you will find many season techs,earn their trust and they will put the good word outhere for you.

    jobs in HVAC

    I run a school in Southern California. We have students that get out of school and the employers are really happy to find the help. I don't know the circumstances of your particular situation, but let me tell you step one.

    Don't go around saying you don't have any "experience". School, if it is a quality program gives you the opportunity to get "experience". Hopefully the proper way.

    Getting a job requires selling yourself to an employer. One way or another you are going to need to tell that employer why you are the BEST candidate for that position. If you don't know whether or not you ARE the best candidate, you better figure out a compelling argument.

    This depends on who you are as well as your circumstances. Are you young? If so, let him/her know how enthusiastic and energetic you are (show some "youthful enthusiasm"). If you are older and in a career transition, figure out how your life experiences prior to going to school make you an ideal candidate for employment. These are things like "I'm always the first on the job and the last to leave." "I'm dependable", Let them know you don't show up to work hungover, etc...

    Next, get your butt out and look for work. Go to supply houses, look for job postings, ask the counter help about who is hiring. Network, do any of your friends know somebody in the business? Don't just sit by the phone and call up asking if they are looking for somebody - show up (with a smile on your face) and ask them if they are looking for someone. Remember, good jobs don't come to you at this point, you have to go looking for them.

    Last. Where the hell is your school in this? If you went to a private school they better help you find work. If you went to a public school like a Community College or a Vo-Tech, they are under no obligation to help you find a job (your tax dollars at work), sorry.

    Above all BE UPBEAT AND POSITIVE.
