About this series

To help unemployed and underemployed South Floridians, The Miami Herald has identified nine occupations we're calling "Hot Jobs.'' These are trades in which the government expects long-term employment growth, and wages are no less than $11 an hour. Most, but not all, of the jobs can be had with a year of study or less at a public or private technical school. And most offer opportunities for growth into higher-skill jobs.
