Finding his path

“I wasn’t sure what I wanted, so I just picked Century College because it was close to me, and I picked energy technical specialist for the degree. I quickly found out that wasn’t what I wanted to do,” TJ explains.

After withdrawing from college, TJ got his real estate license and worked as a realtor for two years, before returning to college after a bit of soul searching.

“I sort of sat down by myself and really thought about what I wanted to do. I saw that the clean energy industry was taking off and was something I could do for the rest of my life,” TJ explains.

He returned to Century College in White Bear Lake for a certificate in Solar Sales and Marketing, one of the few colleges in the country offering a specialized degree.
