Want a new job? Good with your hands? Learn about different trades in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:24 Explanations: 3:35 Fast dialog: 16:39 Jeannine: What are you going to do now that you’ve graduated from high school? Orlando: I’m going to trade school. My father was a stone and brick mason and my brother is a mechanic, but I think I’m going to try something different. Jeannine: Like what? Orlando: Maybe I’ll study to become an electrician or plumber. Those are skills that are always in demand. Jeannine: Don’t they have long apprenticeships? Orlando: Yes, but it’s better than training to be a machinist or technician. It’s easier to open your own shop as an electrician or plumber. Jeannine: With your skills, you can always get a job as a carpenter. Orlando: I think carpentry is a dying art. Most people don’t get furniture or other things custom-made anymore. Jeannine: You know, you could always take a completely different path, learning a completely different skilled trade. Orlando: Like what? Jeannine: You could become a medical or dental technician or even get a cosmetology degree. Orlando: Are you serious?! Would you want these hands cutting your hair? Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
