Interview Questions for Class
Hey whats up nerds, I was hoping you guys could answer a couple questions about your career for my class. The questions are:
What did you want to be growing up?
What did you want do while going through college or any secondary education?
How college changed you?
How you got into your career/job today?
and finally Do you like what you are doing now?
Thanks bois if you wanna go into more detail be my guest
1. Pro baseball player.
2. I didn't go to college. Shit's way to expensive.
3. No college
4. Worked teaching lessons for 3 year starting at 14. Almost got fired at another mtn for year 4 for building a booter. They needed some help in the park and asked if I was down for that. Did 14 seasons of mostly day time stuff. Now did the last 3 in a cat and doing this winter as well.
5. I dig it. Pays like shit but only job I ever want to do again. Also allowed me to mive around the states pretty east, do a season in NZ, did to seasons in Africa, and now doing summers in Australia
Hoping to keep learning stuff, getting better at my job, meeting awesome people, and working in cool places.
A job I had no idea existed when I was young but ended up perfect for me. Mtn I grew up at had no jumps no rails. I'd build jumps in the morning and then ride them all afternoon and night. They'd get plowed I'd rebuild. Sometimes I'd get kicked off the hill for the day.Was pretty sick to come back there for 2 seasons and build them a ton of features and getting a cool mini park with some pretty sweet rail setups in.
I think this was my 20th season in the ski industry. I've been fucked over by a few places, the ski industry chronically underpays, but I hope I'll still be working at mtns in 10+ years.
1. No clue what I wanted to be
2. Graduated HS and just went to work
3. Got a job as a maintenance person at a plant, electrical, welding, wood working, you name it, I fixed it. Before hand, I could write a novel on my life but I grew up on the farm, planting, harvesting, irrigation etc. Always around large equipment and fixing them. Worked for a car stereo shop for 10 yrs so I had a little electrical background. Built/worked on motorcycles professionally for about 7 years then became a maintenance mechanic at a plant due to needing a big boy job with benefits. Learned more skills about plant maintenance, manager job came up in a different location for the same company, applied for the heck of it, here I sit as maintenance manager for a large company supplying an ingredient to beer and whiskey manufactures around the world. Been here almost 10 years.
