Springtime Thoughts on Starting a New Trade in Carpentry: How to Know if Now is the Time to Switch Careers and Start Fresh

Ah, springtime! A time of rebirth, renewal, and rejuvenation. As the seasons change, we at KB Staffing are contemplating what it means to be reborn in a professional sense. With unemployment at an all-time low, it’s a job seeker’s market, which means there has never been a better time to switch professions if you’re thinking of trying your hand at a new trade. Working a temp-to-hire job or full time temp job in Polk County can introduce you to new experiences that open a world of opportunities for you professionally.

For example, have you ever considered carpentry as a career? Construction jobs are in high demand, so getting your foot in the door through an expert staffing service can help you gain valuable experience for a new field.

Carpentry, like other building trades, requires a problem-solving mentality, combined with an ability to work on your feet while bending, stooping, reaching, and moving around. You need to be able to communicate effectively with coworkers, as carpentry and other trades in construction are really a team effort. There are vocational schools in the Polk County area and online that can help you learn the skills you need for this type of trade, but even with the education you’ll want to gain some hands-on experience in the workplace.

Hands-on experience is exactly what you’ll get with a full time temporary job or temp-to-hire job through KB Staffing based out of Winter Haven. There is no substitute for the skill training and mentorship that you’ll receive on the job. Working with other craftspeople, you’ll pick up tricks of the trade and valuable insights. You may find a new career that is satisfying both personally and professionally, as you watch projects you have had your hand in creating come to fruition.

Whatever your career goals are, and whatever skill level you are currently at, KB Staffing can help you grow and bloom into an employee who loves what they do.
