Houston is in need of skilled people in a/c , electricity, car repair, and other vocational skills. Check out University of Houston and their vocational programs and Houston Community College. We need excellent experienced skilled people. My mechanic makes a more $$ than most attorneys.

Also, look in the Chronicle classifieds to see where the current needs are. A/C and car repair... I'd imagine you'd be set for life in Houston with careers in either of those!

My husband is a licensed electrician and he would say that they are in demand - especially Apprentice Electricians and Journeymans. Also, I would agree with Yetti and say that mechanics are always needed, it seems. Best of luck!
