    No one interested in HVAC internship in Hillsboro OR?

    Folks,

    This is for my understanding, but if someone is interested, please let me know.
    I am a recruiter and have a hard time to find someone who is pursuing an A.A.S in HVAC and wants to pass an internship with us. We offer good pay and conditions, how come that no one applies? Is the idea so uncommon?
    Besides Community Colleges, where else could I look?
    Thanks for your inputs!

    Thanks for the feedback, my email is in my profile, email me and I'll send you the details. I am a legitimate recruiter for the biggest semiconductor manufacturer and not a headhunter or so.

    In order to tease the people out of mom's basement that we will need in the next 20 years, this industry is going to have to offer in excess of $75,000..... because right now they can sit in their mom's basement, play fortnite whenever they want to, and if they can write apps for the iPhone they can make $50,000 and never leave the house.

    So how are you going to get them onto a roof in the summer time or the winter time doing service for somebody's air conditioning or heating?

    Could be a good “in” to the facilities technician career. Being a blue badge is interesting. Large tonnage trane low pressure centrifugals, clean rooms, etc.... but a very strange work environment.

    17-18 bucks an hour or so, no box cutters allowed on site, super safety sensitive... I never finished med school but I can guess why you have few applicants.

    Here's the answer, whether you like it or not:

    Do you have any children? If so, did you encourage them to get into blue collar trades? Or did you pay their way to higher education?

    You see, it is the parents encouraging their children to not get into the trades.

    Combine that with not learning so many skills the rest of us learned as teenagers, while we learned how to fix our cars. Those skill gave us kids great experience.

    I won't even get into the social media thing.

    But yes, if you have kids, but did not encourage them to get into the trades, then you are the problem.

    If you were a real tech, you'd solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    I use 56% silver on everything except steel.

    Did you really need the " If you were a real tech " ??

    The OP isn't even in this country.
    The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and stamps EVER.
    Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to "Please Do Not Feed the Animals". Their stated reason for this policy "... the animals become dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."

    These days, doesn't need to be. Many services are out sourced or contracted outside of our borders.
