Many students struggle when it comes to making a decision about what kind of job they want for the duration of their working years. Due to the increasingly digital and automated nature of today’s professional and personal landscapes, careers focusing on computers and their peripherals are becoming popular. With that said, it is important to note that skilled trades are still an important part of modern society. In fact, they are perhaps more important than ever before precisely because so many students are avoiding them in favor of other options.
