Celebrating National Skilled Trades Day

Recognizing Those In Trades

On the first Wednesday in May, we aim to raise awareness about the importance of the Skilled Trade industry. Throughout the United States, many businesses are facing a huge dilemma- there are more job openings than there are people to fill them. In an effort to celebrate those in this industry and shed a positive light on skilled trades jobs, Home Solutions of Iowa is celebrating National Skilled Trades Day!

Pushing The Youth To Join A Trade

There are a wide variety of trade jobs you can pursue; for example construction worker, welder, and electrician. These jobs are essential to our communities and are vastly underrated. We love to promote and showcase the high-skill, high-wage, in-demand careers in Iowa’s skilled trades. We participate in Build My Future which is put on by the Iowa Skilled Trades Association. This event allows students to explore and participate in hands-on activities. Being able to showcase the different trades, allow the youth to see what jobs are available in Iowa without a college degree. We want to educate the youth that are many options in the skilled trades industry.
