There are a lot of misconceptions about a career in the trades, including that it’s a dead end job, it’s dangerous, or it’s dirty. We want to correct those misconceptions, and you can help us. We want to hear about how you became a tradesperson, whether you’re a plumber, a welder, a carpenter, or any other profession. Was your mother or father in a trade? Did you fall in love with woodworking in high school and then researched what you could do with those skills? Or did you come to it by accident?
We want to hear about it. When did you know you were going to be in the trades, and how did you decide on which trade? What did your career path look like?
