If physical labor isn’t your calling, don’t count the construction industry out.


If you like working outdoors and putting in a full day of physical labor, becoming a tradesman may be the career choice for you. This group of trades includes everything from carpenter to welder. Some education or apprentice training may be necessary for skilled trades such as cement mason, glazier, landscaper and tiler.
