    New from western Wisconsin

    Hello,

    As a junior in high school I have been waffling around with what career I want to pursue. At one time I did have an interest in becoming involved with HVAC. My girlfriends father works in the trade and that is what sparked my interest. I have also thought about vehicle maintenance, air force, and several other careers, but that is besides the point.

    Recently, I have found myself most interested in becoming a game warden. All of the classes that I have signed up for next year revolve around that idea. It was very rushed though.

    Now that I rushed that decision I have began to think of HVAC once again. As a guy who has only taken two shop classes, it is a bit intimidating understanding the trade. Everything seems so complex.

    I really like working with my hands, meeting people, and working mostly alone. HVAC seems to fit that perfectly. I don't know if I am right for the job though.

    If there is anything that you can share with me to help, that would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Lukas
