I think I'm finally done with undergrad. I have no interest in grad school right now. I don't want a career in my area of study. How does one go about finding a good apprenticeship/internship in an interesting trade? I've been going to school now for around 20 years and I've yet to learn a skill that I can earn a living with.
I majored in US history and anthropology. I've worked in kitchens on and off for 4+ years. I've taught two semesters of English to foreign studens at my university's English Language Institute. I brew my own beer.
I want to learn a skill that I can make money with. I'm meticulous when I work on a project. I never want to write another paper in my life. I don't want to work 60+ hours a week to make ends meet.
Here are two posts which were related to my question, but never really went in a helpful direction:
Here's what I DON'T want right now:
1. Teaching English abroad seems like a great way to travel, but I want to develop a skill that will make me money in the long haul.
2. Peace Corps seems like a great opportunity, but I want to develop some sort of trade skill.
I like the sound of WWOOFING for a while. At least I'll learn some gardening/farming that way.
What are other programs that are free/paid that will teach me useful skills?
