I recently completed the Installation/Technician courses at my local college ( TCC ) and am now actively searching for a job, but my biggest problem is my work history.
The main reason I went to school was due to the fact that all my expirience was in computers, but when the .com ball dropped my job prospects went south fast. Now im stuck with a four year gap ( worked for myself, but that doesnt count I guess ) in my work expirience topped with the fact that I have no prior HVAC expirience except for my schooling.
Now im not trying to "start at the top" ... I have applied for apartment maintenance, installer positions, hotel maintenance... etc.
I thought having my EPA and ICE certifications would help with the apartment maintenance, but I guess the work history is killing me.
Anyway im very discouraged... what would you guys do to get started in a situation like this? I like hard work, but thats hard to prove with a spotty work history like I have.
