Should I go to college or start working?

College isn’t for everyone.  There is absolutely nothing wrong with going to college and earning a four-year degree.  In some cases, that is the road you need to travel to land the job you want.  However, if college isn’t something you’re interested in, don’t be fooled into thinking that you can’t make a good living unless you go to college.  If you like working with your hands, then you can start earning money in the construction field and not have to go into debt for a college education.  The average cost of just one year of college ranges from $9,300 all the way up to a staggering $35,800.  A very good alternative is to begin working in a trade where you can earn money instead of spending it.  Here at Hayes Construction, we are always looking for young people to join our team and we want to help develop your skills.  We can help you regardless of your current abilities.  Start out as a Helper and work your way up to Carpenter and even Carpenter Foreman.  Your earning potential really depends on how hard you’re willing to work and how much you want to learn!  Contact us at 410-628-7900 or stop by our office just north of Timonium to fill out an application.
