Many graduates have launched careers in construction and carpentry with local employment in housing-related industries. Areas of employment include, but are not limited to: vinyl and cedar siding installation, sheetrock, door and window replacement, framing, home renovations, and kitchen/bathroom remodeling. With experience and skill, this work offers a good foundation for management positions or as a precursor to becoming an independent contractor. Some graduates also join the union-sponsored carpentry apprenticeship program, which enables them to work on commercial projects at higher wages. Others may elect to continue their education and study architecture or civil and structural engineering at the college level.
