Considering A Career
I currently work for a fiberglass fabricating company. It is a small company and I wear many hats: CAD designer, project manager, trainer, job bids, etc. In the past I spent a couple of years out on the road repairing wind turbines, and I miss the adventure that went along with that. They don't let me go out anymore because I'm needed at the plant. My gig isn't horrible, but I feel like there is nowhere to go from here. The pay is ok, but Portland is so expensive now I can't even afford to buy a decent house. My company is pretty dysfunctional and I worry about how much longer they will be in business. I feel like trucking would give me a more stable future, and the ability to earn more money. I also like the flexibility to be able to move anywhere in the country and still find good work. I had a Class A CDL 20 years ago when I worked for a landscape nursery hauling trees and heavy equipment. I liked driving, and I think it would be a blast to travel the country for a living. For now, I'm studying up for the learners permit and reading everything I can on this awesome forum. I will be looking into a school in the very near future.
