What is a trade job?
A trade job is a profession that requires advanced training and skills. Every trade has a different set of requirements for you to be qualified to do it.
One benefit of a trade job is that you can make a living off of your interests. Do you like to work with your hands? Are you creative? Enjoy multitasking? Are you a problem-solver? Like learning new skills?
Hands-on careers often emphasize physical activity and tend to de-emphasize paperwork. Many of the people who are drawn to jobs in the trades are independent, systematic thinkers, who prefer straightforward communication and practical tasks.
