Have you ever considered learning a skilled trade such as carpentry or construction work instead of attending a traditional college? Many will answer no, but it could be a smarter decision for many students post high school.
If you are not one to enjoy getting up every morning to go work at a desk job, a career in skilled trades could be a better suiting option.
Attending a trade school allows you to focus directly on the field of work you choose rather than the large range of classes those going to a traditional college will need to take. Once you graduate from a trade school you are ready and qualified to work in that given industry. Additionally, learning a skilled trade may offer nearly as many employment opportunities today as those attending college.
With many skilled trade workers from previous generations beginning to retire and limited amounts of current graduates joining the trades, there are large numbers of employment opportunities becoming available. No matter the industry, trade workers are in high demand.
