Repost: Diesel Career Advice
Hello Everybody! Sorry to repost but I never got a response in general...I thought maybe this would be a better thread for this topic! So here goes...!!
So I was curious on what the Diesel Wrenches of the site considered the best way to get into the Diesel world is!
I am currently in the Navy as an ABE (Working on the Catapults and Arresting Gear on Aircraft Carriers, so nothing diesel related as of now) So I'll have money for schooling if that's the best way to get started, like going to a UTI or something like that.
Or should I just go directly to a shop and give them a résumé and hope they give me a shot right when I get out?
I love diesels and I KNOW it's what I was meant for, but I don't have a lot of knowledge with them (YET)
I've done quite a bit of research so don't worry I'm not in it for the money, it's what I love and want to do. And trust me after the Navy I'm all about doing something 'cause I WANT to not because someone told me to do it. I'd rather be happy working and making a living honestly then making a lot and miserable.
Anyway...any advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks!
