What to do after High School?: Trade School

What's a trade school? It's a school that teaches people a trade, skill,  that is needed to perform a job/career. Trade schools are also called vocational or technical schools. I would say that if you really have passion in something like massage or doing hair or something else that you have a strong passion for, you should really look into attending a trade school. I personally didn't go, but I know people who have gone to fashion design school, cosmetology school, and massage therapy school and they got hands on training for the job that they wanted to get into. They learned valuable skills that helped them hone in on their craft and also learn about the business and legal aspects of their chosen professions.

Even if you don't believe you have a passion, going to a trade school to get skills and training in a field that is always in demand is a good idea. I think it's a good idea especially if you don't want to go to a 4-year college. For example: we live in the technology era; phones, iPads, iPods, laptops, tablets, tvs, and this list goes on will continuously need repair or the latest technology for optimal performance. Getting into a trade school program that focuses on hands on learning and skill development would guarantee you a job.

If you are afraid of what your friends tell you about college loans and drama or maybe you aren't interested in the college thing and are tired of working at Publix or Wendy's then maybe you should consider going to a trade school.
