Certain aspects of engineering projects are enjoyed by welders, electricians and infrastructure-related jobs. Workers in manufacturing jobs execute precision, pay attention to detail, and get the satisfaction of watching things come to life.
Finding a job in the trades, or even manufacturing, does necessitate some education after high school. However, required certificates, certifications or associate degrees are less costly and take less time than earning a bachelor's degree. Tuition for these credentials is dramatically less than the cost of a traditional four-year college experience.
