Finding the Right Path.
For a young person finishing high school, there are so many directions they can take. The numerous choices can throw some curve balls. And although there are some who know exactly what they want to do, others aren’t so sure. Jeremy Geisler knew he was a problem solver who enjoyed people, which originally led him to pursue nursing as a career.
While attending U of D Mercy Nursing program he was halted from going further, “I had to leave the program because of personal issues,” said Geisler.
Nursing programs aren’t easy to get back into, and with that career getting further and further from him, he went other routes. He tried automotive work for a year, “It just wasn’t my thing,” says Geisler.
He tried tool and die, but knew it wouldn’t be enough for him as a career choice. So, six months into this new job, he started attending Northwestern Tech. He knew from his dad’s career in HVAC that it was a good route to go. Geisler was motivated, married, and wanted to get his professional life started.
But soon after starting Northwestern Tech, Geisler’s work schedule was going to change, which would have interrupted his schooling. Not wanting to sacrifice his education again, he had to make a choice, and he didn’t want to give up on this program, “I decided to leave my tool and die job,” says Geisler.
Having just finished his troubleshooting class, Geisler aggressively sought employment with local HVAC companies. He knew he could do the entry level technician work that many companies need and was able to land a job with Randazzo Heating and Cooling. “Randazzo called me and offered me a job that paid what I was making at the tool and die shop. I jumped at the chance.”
Geisler graduated June 12th and is already working in the field. He has a long career in front of him and is starting out with a great employer, “I plan on staying here for the long term, it’s a really good company that is family oriented,” says Geisler.
