A Career in the Trades Starts with Home Remodeling


– If you’re looking for a great job in the residential remodeling industry, look no further than Mosby Building Arts where you can learn skills to help put you on the right career path. Photo journalist Kenney Koger gets all the information
you need to get started. – Mosby is a great place to work. In fact, many of the people
that have worked for us have either owned their own company or have had a lot of
experience in other places. And what they’ve found
is they want to work at a place where the culture’s great, which it is great at Mosby. And they want to work in
a place where they can do what they love to do. If you want to have a fantastic career, get into trades work. There’s always work. You can work anywhere in the nation, anywhere in the world, really. And once you have these skills, the opportunities are there, the benefits are there. It’s a great paying profession, and it’s something that is
actually really enjoyable. At Mosby Building Arts, we have a program called Trades Work Program where we bring people in that have no skills
and we train them for a year. And then after a year, they can decide if they want to work for us, or we decide if we want
them to work for us. And if they do, they get a scholarship, a $1,000 scholarship. – Mosby has an amazing culture. Everybody is friendly. We would love to have more women
in the remodeling industry. I know there’s a lot of women out there that can do arts and
crafts, that are designers, that just love to work with their hands. This is what we do everyday. This is what we would love to see, more women in this industry. Anybody that just really doesn’t want to take that traditional path, they want to make good money, there’s a lot of great benefits
to working in this field. Check out the trades. I mean there’s the electrical, construction industry, plumbing. The traditional college
isn’t for everybody. The trades work is just
a different opportunity for them to check out. – Mosby’s been around for 72 years. It’s one of the great benefits of working for Mosby is you know that you are joining a company that has people
who know what they’re doing and can maintain the company and your job so that you’re not looking
for another job in six months. We have over 100 employees. We are looking to add to our team. And we’re looking to add people that improve our culture and make it, help it continue to be as good as it is. We have a variety of different openings. Some of them require
experience, some don’t. So for the experienced positions, we are looking for a
painter, an electrician, a lead carpenter or a lead remodeler, and a kitchen and bath installer. And we can make a career out of it. It’s a great opportunity for somebody to just make a difference
in peoples’ lives. Everyday you step back and you can see what you’ve done and feel proud and have that self satisfaction
of a job will done. Choose a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life. – [Woman] For information,
just go to their website to find a list of all the job openings. – Hi, I’m Mark McClanahan,
