Default Not being stable

Hey guys.... So im running in to a problem in my company. Ive been with them for over a year now, and they have been saying they want to put me on the "fast track" so i can learn and run jobs for them. Im having a hard time learning the things they need me to learn be cause there bouncing me everywhere. Job to job. And the other thing is the stuff i do know like jetting , cctv and other "simple" stuff... They wont give me the opportunity to take initiative. What do i do...

Just keep plugging away. Most companies know that the trade can be taught but the type of person you are is your real value to them.

Unfortunately-you won't become independently profitable until 10 years from now. So do as much sidework for practice as you can. Knowledge is the wisdom of EXPERIENCE. Just leave plenty of time and $ for mistakes.

My advice:

Keep your head down and work hard.
Forget the "fast track" idea and remember its not their job to teach, It's your job to learn.

Dont worry about proving yourself through your past experiences. Prove yourself through with your work ethic and craftsmanship.

Be patience it's takes years.

Let me explain what I think you're being told, someone likes you at the company and wants to keep you around but there making the classic mistake of feeding you pillow talk. That doesn't mean that the person telling you this is being dishonest , it just means they have to figure out where you fit in. Keep your head down and go with the flow, be the guy that they need that day and you will do fine.
