What are the real experiences of Electricians and Fashion Designers?
I'm nearly out of high school, and have a few options lined up for me - and really only two that jump out at me - but I'm stuck wondering what career will be best for me long term, financially and engagement wise, but my searches come up pretty lacking in any actual answers. Between electrician work and fashion design, I kind of feel like there isn't really a good way to accurately find what can keep me supported in the current economy, as well as keep me engaged without overworking - especially with the tens of articles and "Why choose this job?" blogs that make me want to tear my hair out with how they don't actually have any information in them! I've put weeks of thought into it, as well as months worth of research, but I'm not actually finding things of worth that don't just boil down to "This job is hard, and exhausting. But it is super amazing, really!" I understand that a lot of jobs can be like that - I want the Whys of them being like that. The specifics. On top of that, I don't have the opportunity to go and ask the questions I want to actual members of these fields (which is why I've come here - hooray) due to poor location and lack of funding for transport (alas, the struggle of a teen). Do I start off with the rigorous and rewarding electrician work that is almost guaranteed to pay well out of trade school - where I can work with my hands frequently and get to see every step come together even more every day, or go for the selective and vicious fashion world that comparatively has a minor opportunity (though still possible and therefore a very attractive option still) for me to make a more than comfortable living - where I'll spend more than half my time at the drawing board or doing mock ups before getting to have the fruits of my labor in my hands but get to flourish in my creativity? I guess what I'm trying to say is that, since I don't have any experience working with either field, is that I'm too far back to be able to see all the pros and cons of both options that aren't colored by contradictory articles and sites that rack up the word count without saying anything of real substance about the actual jobs themselves. I could really use some help, and would greatly appreciate some info (yes, the good and amazing of it as well as the nitty gritty about how bad it could be) from people who've experienced what it's like in those working worlds. Things like past experiences, what the training or schooling was like, how different the working environments can vary and if there's any constant in them between different companies. Thanks in advance!
