So by now a few of you know my story, about me going back to school to become an Electrician. Now that I've been working at it for a while I'm not sure if it's really for me. I mean is interesting in some aspects, but I don't think my heart is in it. Yesterday I applied for an IT job just to see what would happen. Being out of the field for two years I thought no one would hire me because my skills were not up to date. Today I got a call from the same company I sent my resume to. I went there to have a talk with the IT manager and he's really interested in hiring me for an intermediate computer support position. Basically I would be on a higher scale than just a basic tech guy and I get to go to different businesses around the city to fix computer problems. The pay seems decent too. I have a second interview next week, but it seems very hopeful. The problem is, I've spent a lot of money going back to school to do my electrical course, mainly because the cheaper colleges had such high waiting lists. On Monday I'm going to a new construction site, where I have to be on my feet and constantly working or I'll be laid off if I'm caught standing somewhere even for a minute. The trade is not what I thought it would be. It's mostly manual labor and my intellectual abilities aren't used very often. I'm not getting paid very well because I'm just starting out with this, but it would take me 4 years to get paid the same amount as the IT job is offering me. I hate making decisions, something I've never been good at. Especially major ones like these. I feel like I've wasted a lot of money. I thought I'd never get anywhere in my IT career but now in finding out that there are companies out there that really want to hire me for my skills and computer abilities. Right now I'm just the grunt person doing work that seasoned electricians don't want to do. Basically "paying my dues", but I get no respect, and verbal abuse is common. I feel like I've taken a step back in life. Should I stay where I am or look into getting that other job? It's on my mind now and it's bothering me. Thanks for listening.
