Now that I’m in my early 40s, I often look back on the decisions that I made back in my university years. I did the what everyone normally does after high school. I graduated from high school, got a summer job, then went away to study at a university. I lived in on campus for my freshman year and then in a beach house with friends for the final years. Then when I graduated I went out and looked for a full-time work. I soon learned with a History major, all of the works seemed to be taken already! I ended up actually working at a daycare for months before I found work that involved what I went to school to do! Hindsight is absolutely 20/20! Now, I genuinely wish that when I graduated from highschool that I had gone to a technical school. I should have learned the ins and outs of heating, ventilation, and air conditioner systems. That might sound disturbing, but Heating and A/C is a field that is always changing and growing and evolving. Heating and A/C seems like it would be a particularly exciting industry to work in as well. In my opinion, when you think about it, there’s never going to be a work shortage. I mean, from now until kingdom come, people are always going to need their heating systems maintained and inspected. People are always going to want air conditioner working properly in the warm season and the air conditioner is always going to tear up from time to time! The best thing about it is the cost of Heating and A/C education. It doesn’t cost that much to become proficient at heating and cooling work! So your student loans don’t end up being much at all compared to a four year degree.
