In the Spotlight

Read about Phoebe Hawkyard currently enrolled in the truck and coach apprenticeship program. Six years out of high school Phoebe has found her career match.


Shortages in skilled trades have forced industry to think differently about who they can attract, retain and promote within the skilled trades. This change of view has been able to provide an abundance of opportunities for women who are considering skilled trades careers.

Consider the Facts:

  1. Women working in the skilled trades is not new. During World War II, for example, women stepped in to perform the important jobs vacated by men who were fighting overseas.
  2. Jobs in the skilled trades offer wages above the average salary while providing an opportunity to “earn while you learn” through apprenticeship programs.
  3. Brute strength is not a requirement for skilled tradespeople. While there is certainly a physical component to most trades, technology has changed the nature of how work gets done.
  4. Women working in the trades typically report that they feel their work builds self-confidence, is gratifying, that it’s “fun to be at work” and great to “not be tied to a desk.”
