Benefits of Choosing a Trade Vs. Going to College
In many high schools, college is assumed to be the foregone conclusion after graduation. Some well-meaning family members, teachers, and counselors sing the praises of college as the only option for a successful career with long-term earning potential. While there is always value in education, there are many benefits to entering a trade school or accepting opportunities to learn on the job. Many trade programs prepare you for certifications you can earn as you acquire new skills. If you are interested in job security, earning potential, and accruing less debt while beginning your career a bit sooner, choosing a trade can be an excellent choice.
