I chose this career because my dad has always done stuff like this and he taught me a lot of the things that I know. I believe I would be a good fit because I enjoy tinkering with computers and learning how things work and why they work. The thing that attracts me the most is probably the ability to design and take things apart. My only real concern about this career is gonna be the amount of work I will have to put in but I honestly don't mind if I am making that much money.
