I have never been one of those people who knew exactly what I wanted to do from a young age.
So many of my friends knew right away that they wanted to be doctors, professors, lawyers, etc.
and I was always stuck on what to do after high school, in one of my elective classes at university, we took a work aptitude test that asks questions about your personality and interests to see what work would be a great fit for you. I took the test and one of the jobs that came up for me is HVAC company. I read more about what HVAC companies do and I was happy about a future in the HVAC field. I have always been great with my hands, I appreciate helping others, and I have some family members who have worked in the HVAC field. I was surprised that I had never thought of working for an HVAC company before. Once I had an idea of what I wanted to do, I had to figure out exactly where to go next. I felt confused and a little bit helpless. I started doing some research and found out that in my state, I would need to go to university for 15 months full time to become a certified HVAC company. This certainly did not sound too awful because I could still live at home with my parents while I went to university to save money. My next step is to apply for university, then to complete my training to become an HVAC company. I am glad I figured out what I wanted to do with my life.
