As a society, we have focused so heavily on kids going to college, we have forgotten all the other options open to young people ready to enter the world. Upon graduation from high school, students have three choices: go to college, go into the military, or get a job. The good news is these choices are not mutually exclusive and don’t have to happen in a specific order.
If college isn’t the right choice for a student immediately after high school, then determining how to help them find the right job is vital. Students who like to work with their hands and do not want to sit behind a desk should consider construction or manufacturing. People who enjoy taking things apart, put them together, change things, and touch things can put those skills to good use in manufacturing and the trades.
