Thank god for career day

The best part for me is that no longer am I making a very good living doing something I have a passion for, but I’m not dealing with a crazy amount of debt from college like many of my friends

Back when I was a young teenager making my way through high school I had no idea what I was going to do once I graduated. I didn’t want to go to college for four years like most of my friends were going to do, but I also wanted to be able to have a meaningful career that I liked. A few weeks before graduation my school hosted a career day for all of the upperclassmen. I ended up stopping at a booth that was looking to hire some HVAC repair tech trainees. This led to me learning the HVAC repair trade, which led to me eventually becoming a certified HVAC repairman in under a year. The training didn’t come without its trials and tribulations however. It was a large load of mental information along with physical labor that was hard for an eighteen year old kid. It has now been a few years since graduation and I have been loving my career as an HVAC repair tech. The best part for me is that no longer am I making a very good living doing something I have a passion for, but I’m not dealing with a crazy amount of debt from college like many of my friends. If I have any advice to pass along to the young men and women making their way through college who aren’t sure what they are going to do I would recommend one thing. Always keep your options open, because you never know what career path might be the one that makes you jump out of bed in the morning!
