"For people who enjoy working with their hands, entering the construction or other trade fields can begin right after high school. Carpenters, masons, construction workers, painters, and plumbers are among the in-demand jobs in these fields. Apprenticeships provide on-the-job training and trade unions afford solid wages and benefits. Employers of entry-level workers in these fields are looking for employability skills: a sense of responsibility, a willingness to learn, discipline, flexibility, and above all, enthusiasm. What's more, once a worker has gained enough experience, many of these well-paying jobs have the potential for self-employment. If you enjoy building and fixing things, a career in construction and trades could be right for you"--Provided by publisher.
