He hired me for his HVAC company.

When I moved into the area, I wanted to find a job right away.

  • My husband and I moved here because he got relocated.

Although his job paid more than enough to support us, I hated not working. I was an HVAC technician when I met my husband and he had always been proud of what I do. I was one of the top HVAC technicians in our state, and I took that distinction with me in the form of a formal letter from the HVAC company. When I walked into the local HVAC company in this area, I had my letter of recommendation in hand, and my HVAC certification. I told him I wanted a job as an HVAC technician. The pompous man I was talking to, leaned back in his seat and put his hands behind his head. He said there had never been a woman HVAC technician in the company; then proceeded to glare at me. I gave him my letter, but he didn’t even look at it. I was angry and told him I would go to the next HVAC company on my list. I was getting ready to walk out when the door to the office opened. The owner of the company walked out and greeted me. He told the other man to go to work. When he looked at me and told me I was hired, I had to ask if I was the token woman. The other person had said they had never had a woman HVAC technician. I couldn’t believe it when he told me my old boss had called. He didn’t care if I was a green-haired baboon, after the way the owner of the HVAC company raved about me, he would have hired me.
