Johnez, so glad to help and so glad you got your foot in the door! My advice is to learn everything possible. If you ever have any down time go to your boss and ask for more work. Become the most valuable employee! I started out as a temp technician at one of the biggest food companies in the world. I despised being a temp but I kept trudging along. I always kept myself busy and they would come to me with more responsibilities to the point they finally hired me! The other thing I always tried to do is make my boss look good. Make the boss shine and you will be rewarded. Some day you may be the boss! Keep us posted!

Congratulations Johnez.  Think of this as a chance to get skills in HVAC for which there is hot demand.

Great advice.  Look at this as a wakeup call: you have to be always investing in your career, especially in durable, hi-demand roles.

Well, the focus on this thread was how to get past the firing and I didn't really detail what I've been doing beforehand-which was going to school! I've been training for the HVAC/R field for quite a while, just haven't finished yet. Hopefully I'll be done this coming year.
