My son was at the age where he was deciding what he wanted to do for a living.
It started in middle school, when all of the teachers would start asking what kids wanted to do with their lives.
By the time the kids are in high school, they should have a rough idea of what they might want to do. My son still remained confused for a while though. Then he finally mentioned to me that he might be interested in becoming a heating and air conditioning technician. I thought this was a great idea! HVAC professionals are almost always in high demand, and the pay isn’t bad either. He would have his pick of jobs with the way the demand is for HVAC techs right now. It was just perfect timing too, because the HVAC university, in an attempt to get interested students to come and learn, was having a special where interested students could come and learn from an actual HVAC worker for a few days. The heating and air conditioning worker would talk about the HVAC job and what you do on a daily basis, as well as show a demonstration on basic heating and A/C repair. This sounded like a great opportunity for my son, and I planned on dropping him off tomorrow so he could find out what it is like to be a heating and cooling professional, and see if it is right for him. Hopefully he will like the idea of being a certified A/C worker, and then he can go to school right next to our home!
