After dropping out of school, my job options were limited. A few weeks ago I started working a gig for a friend of mine. It was a secretarial job, mostly, answering the phones and helping the buyers that came into the store I was working at. It was also a dispatch job that dealt with the Heating, Ventilation and A/C industry, but I didn’t actually really have a clue in the world about anything about the nuts and bolts of the operations of an HVAC unit. All that changed recently when my boss asked myself and a few others to ride along with 1 of the Heating, Ventilation and A/C specialists to a repair call, on the way, the tech told myself and the others with us that this client was a widow, an older woman, and was not comfortable with a male Heating, Ventilation and A/C tech being alone in the home with her at any time. It turns out this is not so uncommon, and was becoming a recurring concern for this all-male Heating, Ventilation and A/C industry; Suddenly my duties as a secretary were upgraded to riding along with the Heating, Ventilation and A/C work crews once, even twice a week. My presence as a female is enough to keep everyone happy and safe, but now I’m thinking that I should just be an Heating, Ventilation and A/C specialist myself. I could handle a lot of these repair calls by myself with time and learning, they tend to be pretty simple it looked like, but first I have to go back to school for my Heating, Ventilation and A/C certification and get my GED before that.
