Yes I am happy with the career I chose. It wasn't what I thought I would be doing in high school or even really in college. But after trying out a few different things and getting the opportunity to work in many different areas in one company, I am still happy after nearly 30 years at the same company. It is sometimes difficult, sometimes challenging, sometimes hard to balance with my personal life, and can be downright frustrating at times, but it has always been rewarding and I am still learning new things every day. I know that I need to be challenged and always be learning new things to be happy. So my advice it to choose something that can grow with you, and offers you the opportunity to continuously be learning. No career will be all sunshine and roses every day, but if you find something that makes you want to keep going back and gives you a sense of pride in what you are accomplishing, then you have probably found the right career. Good luck to you.
I am happy with the career that I chose. So far, my job has been flexible in the hours that I work and has also allowed me to work from home or the office when I please. This allows me to have time for my personal life while also getting the work done. Furthermore, I enjoy the people that I work with and the work that I do.
I was fortunate to be successful and expand my one man operation to bidding larger commercial office projects and hiring other hanger to work with me. Then I teamed up with painter and we partnered to combine the two trades as a package.
I loved the paper hanging a lot, very satisfying and creative. I enjoyed the business part too but it's not for everyone.
The key to any career is are you getting personal enjoyment out of it.
