While I am not in the HVAC industry, I wanted to share some things I feel can help, no matter what field of work you’re in.
These include some basic and important qualities that have helped me in my career path, like the following:
1. Be reliable. Show up to work, deliver on your commitments and even go above and beyond to deliver results in your work.
2. Be a strong collaborator. Contribute to your team and the company you represent.
3. Grow your connections. Increase your network of customers, people, mentors and advocates who can help you advance in your career of choice.
4. Experience and Education. Be a life-long learner. Continue to look for new ways to increase your education and improve your skills in your field. Never stop learning and reach out to others for help and feedback.
Best wishes in your future goals!
