Wind Turbine Technician
I maintain wind turbines that provide energy to the greater population.
Day to Day
I'm stationary right now, so I go into the same office every day. Unless one of the towers is down or needs attention, I stay in the office getting caught up on work orders and maintaining the shop. Other wind turbine technicians can be travelers. They'll start their day in the office to pick up any supplies before heading out to the wind tower. They'll primarily work inside the tower but may also have to go up to the top of the tower to work.
Advice for Getting Started
Here's the first step for high school students
I highly recommend going to a trade school. My trade school program was only seven months long and significantly less expensive than a four-year college. My teachers were also very supportive, which made a world of difference in my learning. On top of that, the school helped us build resumes and prepare for job interviews, so I was able to find a job immediately after completing the program.
