There are multiple ways of preparing for your future.
Below are some different types of training, costs, advantages, and disadvantages.

Four-Year College | Two-Year College | Private Career College | Apprenticeship
U.S. Armed Forces | Volunteer or Internship | Minimum Wage Job | Do Nothing

What Is It?
You’re hired as a trainee to learn a craft or trade from a craft person or experienced supervisor.

There may be union dues or licensing fees to pay and your own equipment to buy.

What You Get
Real-world training and experience, as well as entry into difficult-to-break-into trades like plumbing, electrical work, or chef.

An excellent way to learn a trade. You’ll get paid while you learn and also earn respect as you “learn the ropes.”

You’ll probably earn only minimum wage or slightly higher during your training.

Apprenticeship programs exist for over 700 occupations, according to the US Department of Labor.
