First of all I'm new to this board. Kinda of stumbled across it when searching for ideas. Was really happy to find a website like this. I'm currently in the Air Force doing HVAC and have been for the last 9 years. Have less than 2 years before this enlistment is up and as much as I'm grateful for those years. I'm leaning towards a major change and its not going two be a easy choice. To be honest I'm really nervous about it. Thinking of finish my years with a Reserve or Guard unit and trying the civilian life again. First of all fellas I know my years in the Air Force are not equilvant to someone who has been in the private sector for that same amount of time. I wouldn't even know were to place me when it comes to HVAC experience. My wife is going to have to help me with my resume...haha Well I have a few questions that I thought about asking. I'm whiling to hear the good and the bad! Just excited to hear what you have to say.
*Is there anyone that has been in this same situation?
*Would you recommend on going to a trade school?
*What do employers feel about workers being in the reserve or guard?
*Is there a slimmer of hope in finding work?
I only get to talk to military guys about this stuff. So I'm grateful to hear anything that someone that actually lives in the world of HVAC has to say.
