Short Description

For people who enjoy working with their hands, entering the construction or other trade fields can begin right after high school. Carpenters, masons, construction workers, painters, and plumbers are among the in-demand jobs in these fields. Apprenticeships provide on-the-job training and trade unions afford solid wages and benefits. Employers of entry-level workers in these fields are looking for employability skills: a sense of responsibility, a willingness to learn, discipline, flexibility, and above all, enthusiasm. What's more, once a worker has gained enough experience, many of these well-paying jobs have the potential for self-employment. If you enjoy building and fixing things, a career in construction and trades could be right for you. Each title in this series contains color photos throughout and the essential information needed to find not just a job but a career that draws on the reader's particular skills and interests. Each chapter profiles a different job in the field and helps the reader to determine whether it is the right job for him or her. Web sites listed in each chapter provide further information. Key Icons appear throughout the books in this series in an effort to encourage library readers to build knowledge, gain awareness, explore possibilities and expand their viewpoints through our content rich non-fiction books. Key Icons in this series are as follows: Words to Understand are shown at the front of each chapter with definitions. These words are set in boldfaced type in that chapter, so that readers are able to reference back to the definitions-building their vocabulary and enhancing their reading comprehension. Sidebars are highlighted graphics with content rich material within that allows readers to build knowledge and broaden their perspectives by weaving together additional information to provide realistic and holistic perspectives. Educational Video features throughout have QR codes linked to online videos that provide supplemental interviews, documentaries, and historical clips. Text-Dependent Questions are placed at the end of each chapter. They challenge the reader's comprehension of the chapter they have just read, while sending the reader back to the text for more careful attention to the evidence presented there. Research Projects are provided at the end of each chapter as well and provide readers with suggestions for projects that encourage deeper research and analysis.
