In today's economy, just being in the right trade is not going to win you fame and fortune by itself. The people who excel in service jobs (like all crafts) don't necessarily cut corners, but do excel at time management, cherry-picking jobs and, yes, upselling the customer to additional services. None of that is evil, but it isn't going to win you friends among your co-workers, as shown in some of the previous posts.
If you don't see yourself in that, make sure you're doing a job you like "doing". The workplace is always going to have its downside--that's the nature of economics. But if you like "doing" something, throwing yourself into a task you enjoy is a great way to shut out a less-than-perfect workplace.
What? No. I WAS a cook for 12 years..lol.
Not considering other trades.
I just got a job at the junkyard and i start school at PCI for automotive technology 10/22.
I found out LCB owes me over 24k from my scholarships and grants, which covers the entire tuition with leftover..
I want schooling because I love school.
I was an honors student and an algebra tutor and also tutored english and measurements and conversions sometimes..
I have the need for academics as well..
Thanks for the luck wish!!
