Does being on the front lines get your adrenaline pumping or make you wish you had a change of pants? If you are prepared for a hands on job, consider pursuing a degree in Trades & Careers. It can be dangerous, but you could be the change the world needs.
Let’s look into the future. Baby boomers are leaving the workforce as quickly as they entered the world, creating a promising job market for future applicants. More than 66% of government employers are planning to hire for new positions this year, up 5% from 2013*. An added bonus-employees in the Trades & Careers industry are generally very satisfied with their jobs, because they’re making a difference.
You could be anything from a firefighter to an auto mechanic, or even a military service member. Maybe helping people is your calling, and all you need to do is pick up the phone. Are you ready to join the team? It sure is a tough job, but somebody’s gotta do it.*Governing, http://www.governing.com/news/headlines/gov-state-local-government-employment-outlook-survey-for-2014.html
