  • Hands-on learning: Trade careers offer students the opportunity to learn and work with their hands, providing a hands-on, practical learning experience.
  • Opportunities for advancement: Many trade careers offer opportunities for advancement and the potential to start one’s own business.
  • Skills that are in demand: Trade skills are in high demand, and students who pursue a career can be confident that their skills will be in demand for years to come.

  • Career satisfaction: Many people find great satisfaction in working in the trades and enjoy the tangible results of their work, such as building a structure or fixing a problem.

I previously worked in the history field but there wasn’t a lot of job opportunities. I like the idea of being able to melt stuff…it’s cool!
