which trade

Im.34 working as data entry clerk and looking to get into trades . Previously I.have a business management diploma but never found wirk in industry. This was in 2006 graduated . I want go back school.since my current job is dead end

I heard people say if you do trades you got work up . Like dig ditch to put pipe in , lot physical and unpleasant places since your new guy.

Anyone in the industry and pros and cons.

I just look into it since plumbing trade or construction trade can make lot money .

Which trade is least physical demand as im.not young.

baking program ok at vcc but i dont like waking up early like 6 am and i heard pay is low even after graduation

Is very not suprising you are 34 wit dead end job. business mgmt diploma in general useful. am very suprised at you and am very sad also disappoint in your failure. revscene just want you to be the best and suceed.

i think trades good idea for someone liek you. but i beleive may be plumbing or construction too difficult for someone like you.

make suggest baking like you orignally planned is may be good idea. very not physical demanding, wake up early is ok.

cream puffs delicious, you a cream puff, can be making cream puffs is perfect for you.

hoepful this helps, plz respond

Least physically demanding? Maybe painting? Although full 5g pails look heavy. I dunno.

All trades are physically demanding. Dirtier, more physically demanding jobs can make more money with less experience.

For cleaner, less physically demanding jobs... if you want good pay you would probably need more experience (10 years+) and maybe even a brain.

you won't have to do unpleasant things as the new guy (subjective)...I also hear you don't have to wake up at 6am for that
how well you get paid will depend on your gag reflex
it is pretty physically demanding though...you should try shadowing first

Bakers' jobs aren't easy either
painting fucking sucks because you're always covered in paint
don't become the losers that put up the stucco, that's also a terrible job


maybe go to college, get C's in every class, then become a barista
pay is shit, but wifi is free

Joe, stop chasing the money and the tail. You do it like a headless chicken. Get some focus, man. Get a job that you can enjoy. Work hard at it, and the money will come.

look into the programs at BCIT and see what appeals to you.
Once you have your ticket in a trade that will guarantee you a minimum starting wage. BUT like any job you will have to work your way up the seniority ladder.
If you know anyone that works as a longshoreman, that is one way to go. It took my buddy about four years before he got into the longshoreman with a contact on the inside.

You sound like good thinker.
You move to Chinar, become good Engrish tutor. Make lots of moneys there.

Such Engrish. Great words. Much teach. No labour.

if i could do it again, i would consider a trade in construction industry, like plumbing or electrical. Seems like there's always work available.
Good luck in your search

Every trade until you're a foreman is relatively labour intensive.
