Actual Comments from the holder of this Actual Career

 

How do you feel about this Actual Career?
I enjoy the career that I’m in.

Was your degree helpful in your career field?
Yes

In my opinion, I believe that someone could do this job without a college degree. Specialized training by the employer would be enough.

Experience, Skills, Specialized Training, Licenses, or Certifications:
I have 7 years experience in the maintenance field.

Just one more thing….
When I was looking for a career, I was simply looking for a job that paid well and would continue to be in demand for years to come. In this respect, I have the perfect career.  Something I did fail to take into account, is the fact that I will be stuck working midnights for the rest of my working career if I remain at my current place of employment.
