Job Profile: Carpenter

Carpenters work with wood and make structures and materials for use in everything from single-family homes to skyscrapers and bridges. Carpentry is generally a very manual operation and requires much attention to detail especially in reading blueprints and schematics on projects. One small mistake could be a critical error.

Carpenters generally train on the job during apprenticeships and basic high school education is needed.

The building industry that generally depends on the state of the economy drives the need for carpenters so when there's a boom there's plenty of work and vice versa.
