Trade Jobs Are Solid Option For Post-School Career

       Transitioning from high school to college is a scary thought. One is in school from the ripe age of five to the age of 18. The idea that one now has the choice to continue their education, or cut it short, is truly frightening to some. Many people like to believe that the obvious choice would be to continue their education. However, taking a different route could also leave one fulfilled.

        Getting a degree in business is an effective way to jump-start one’s entrepreneurship however, not many people know that this can easily be achieved without a college degree. In fact, many successful entrepreneurs started their businesses without even stepping foot in college.

         Trade school is yet another alternative to college. Many people attend trade school when they are skilled at a laborious task that just cannot be practiced at a normal college. Not only does it save one time, but one is almost guaranteed a job coming out of trade school.

        While famous artists are making thick paychecks and are envied by most, pursuing art can be a tricky task. Not everyone is built to succeed at it, and it can take a lot of effort and time. However, just because it is tricky does not mean that one should not give it their all. In the end, the amount of time and hard work one puts into it will be the determining factor of the result. 

         At the end of the day, the simple answer to what one can do if they do not want to go to college is find a job. Not all jobs require a degree, and beyond fast food and waitressing, there are still some decent paying jobs out there with no degree requirements. For example, an elevator installer, power plant operator, or even a construction supervisor. All of these jobs make 60,000 a year or more. 

         Despite what your parents tell you about the world after high school, it is not always just about college. Some people just are not meant to go to college and cheers to them for being able to do that. Straying from the status quo is what makes the world such an interesting place.
