Making a Living
Everyone wants a job that will allow them to earn a good salary. And there are many sources of information on the subject—some not so good! Avery popular adage goes “Do something you love and you will never work a day in your life.” Anyone who has ever worked knows that is not true! It’s called work for a reason, even if you love it most days.
Another fallacy is that a college degree will guarantee you a job. There are many unemployed or underemployed college graduate who would disagree with that statement. The good news in Texoma is that you don’t need a 4-year degree to get a great job with benefits. Both manufacturing and healthcare occupations have many job openings that require less than a 4-year degree. For high school students in Sherman and Denison, there are manufacturing programs available and tuition is free. If you are thinking about to pay for your child’s college education, consider checking out these programs. Videos about manufacturing in Texoma are available at this link: http://madeintexoma.com
