With the current GNA seniors graduating in less than one month and the juniors approaching their final school year at GNA, many will graduate, go off to college, and be successful. However, some will not go off to college (since college is not for all), and a few instead will pursue a job in the nation’s trades.

Year by year, the nation’s trade jobs are becoming less and less pursued by graduating students. Partly due to the pinned down idea of little success, little pay in these jobs, along with some parental pressure, causes students throughout the nation to simply rule this labor source out. In reality, these trade jobs provide a student with much success, financial stability, and with a job that may last them for the rest of their life, with equal opportunity to meet new people/develop relations, partake in a union, receive medical benefits (among numerous others), and sometimes even receive a flexible schedule and/or paid time off.

Trade jobs simply go beyond construction, mechanics, operators, metal/wood workers, plumbers, and carpenters. Trade workers also specialize in licensed nursing, dental hygiene, landscape development, cooking, (some) managing, environmental science, and web development. The wages greatly range, with some jobs reaching into the $100,000 (annual) range.

After an in-depth look of the possibilities of the nation’s trade jobs, one can therefore see that they should not be just simply ruled out. They offer numerous benefits to the employees, allow individuals with the chance to practice something they love/like, and in the end, (some) provide great wages for one to better enjoy retirement.
