Meet Jack
Plumber

Education: Bachelor's and Master's Degrees in Philosophy from Indiana University

What Lead You to Your Current Job: I started working as a plumber in college and it was an easy transition after school. In high school, I worked at a hardware staore, which helped me get used to doing something physical with people watching.

Job Duties: Each morning, I line up my schedule for the day and then I head out to answer service calls. My job requires me to be hands on and get a little dirty every once in awhile

What I Like About My Job: I enjoy doing physical labor and using my brain. It is also rewarding to finish a big job.
