    You should aim a little higher, you could transition into automation or electronics engineering. Military experience is always a big plus on your resume.

    An Engineering degree will take you where ever you want it to.
    +1 I'm a chemical engineer in natural gas liquids... (propane, ethane, etc). If I had it to do over again, I might have gone mechanical. But I enjoy what I'm doing. Lots of demand for engineers.

    If you like electronics but also want something hands on, maybe a field service engineering position might be something you would like. You need to be able to think clearly under high stress, (Military teaches you that.) and don't mind traveling here and there. (The travel portion can vary greatly from one company to another.)
    Most field service positions require an EE or military equivalent.

    Journeyman always comes with $$ signs. I know I've worked hard to attain that title in my line of work. You also fabricate...a lot of skills involved there. its an achievement the same sometimes more rewarding than a college degree. I'm not saying don't go to college, but for those of us that chose a different path, there is still a light at the end of the tunnel! !

    IME hands on gets old and eventually your hands don't do what you want them too. Automation and electronics are high demand fields and have a lot of hands on anyways.

    You have to look at the big picture, any knucklehead can turn wrenches and companies are always willing to hire the cheap guy. Whatever you do make yourself indispensable to your employer.

    I see all of you have jobs that you love. That is good! I will be graduating High School in 3 years though and I have no Idea on what I want to be. What do you guys think a good job would be for someone who loves the outdoors?

    You either:
    A. Are persistent enough to get the job of your dreams.
    or
    B. Settle with a job that pays well enough to allow you to do the things you want to do on your time off.

    You can be happy either way. I don't live to work, I work so I can live.

    You like the outdoors, so that could be any kind of job from a civil engineer to a fruit picker. Picking fruit sucks though, I did that most of my childhood not fun at all. Very outdoorsey though!!!

    Some others that come to mind:

    Utility worker, Landscaper, Wildlife officer, Armed Forces, Biologist, Surveyor...

    I spend money every day!!! Seriously I do....LOL I'm an SAP purchase requisitioner/ buyer for Mechanical at a chemical plant for Projects/ Maintenance/ TAR work. I've been doing this for a little over 10 years. I love my job and have learned a tons of stuff along the way. The good thing is I have a nice little drive, like 25 minutes to work, cant argue with that. I do work quite a few hours, but I still make time for my family. I have to, I have a beautiful wife, and 2 wonderful children.

    I do have 3-1/2 years of college under my belt. Right after graduating school I went to college to work on a double major. I didnt finish, but I did meet the love of my life. I do regret not finishing, she was worth it though.

    While in college I worked at a Hardee's, Convenience Store chain, HEB (local grocery chain, mainly in Texas), and what I'm doing now. I did a few odd jobs inbetween to.

    That's my story.....

    i work in a [publix supermarket chain] meat department, seafood peddler, meat wrapper, and butcher in training, im pushing hard to become a full time butcher/"meat cutter".

    however much i like the idea of that, i was not made for retail work. id like to go to school and maybe pick up training in hvac or some kind of engineering degree. maybe something in drafting/design and mechanical engineering. tried the whole military thing and that didnt pan out....

    Inbound/Outbound Dockworker at Saia Motor Freight and working on my CDL. Money is darn good for what I do. I basically load trailers so people,companies and suppliers can get their frieght throughout the U.S and other countries. Without Trucking and the Dockworkers loading simple life would be extremely difficult for everyone.

    It depends on how mechanically inclined you are and where you live. I work as maintenance instrument tech at an oil and gas plant.

    I really like the challenges and there is always opportunity to learn. Its also a cleaner job then a millwright oe mechanic for ex. Depending on the plant you could make a lot of money the one im at pulls in 10 million a day and we work shifts of 7 days on 7 days off for 12 hours. Its awesome having a full week off. I'd never work a Monday to Friday job again.
