I just changed careers recently.
I had been working in landscaping and I really hated it.
My desire was really to be a certified heating and air conditioning specialist. Being a certified heating and air conditioning specialist is something I wanted since I was a teenager but did not have the money to go to HVAC school. But now I do, so I quit my job as a landscaper and went to HVAC school. Getting my heating and air conditioning certification was easy compared to what I had imagined. It is not like going to regular college for a degree. With heating and air conditioning school you can have your HVAC certification within a matter of 6 months! It helped that I already knew a bunch about heating and air conditioning repair. That was helpful in trotting through the whole course. When all was said and done I graduated with honors and ended up getting my very own heating and air conditioning licence. I was so happy about this! The way it just all came together was like fate. I ended up getting a job with a local heating and cooling company in my town. They hired me almost right on the spot. I have now been working for them about a year and am very happy with it. I won’t be quitting this job as far as I can see. I had thought about going into business for myself, but I wasn’t very business savvy. So working for a heating and air conditioning company was much more stable for me.
