Most days, I work on common electrical problems in homes, businesses, and commercial buildings.
I’ve been an electrician for the past 20 years.
The job hasn’t changed much in that time, and things can get boring quickly. A few years ago, my wife and I moved across the country. She was offered a great promotion, but it meant moving far from our home. My wife and I weighed all of the pros and cons, and then decided to make the move. Her company paid for our expenses, and they even rented a truck to move our things from one state to the other. Unfortunately, I couldn’t transfer with my job. I had to look for a brand new job in the electrical field. I interviewed with several different places, before I found the perfect new job. Last weekend, I started at the new place. Instead of working for an electrician, I decided to take a job working at a marijuana grow farm. The marijuana grow farm has several different buildings and greenhouses. The marijuana grow farm wanted a full-time electrician on staff, so they don’t have to wait for a commercial carrier appointment. Most days, I’ll probably just sit around and watch TV. If there is a major electrical problem, I’ll be there to fix it in a hurry. This is one of the most exciting jobs that I have ever had. I never pictured myself working for a marijuana farm, but then again, I never thought my wife and I would move all the way across the country either. Things are getting more exciting by the moment.
