One of the great things about carpentry is that there will always be a demand for this job. As long as people are still building things, there will always be carpenters so you don't have to worry as much as other people about job security. Also, anything that requires a trade school education instead of a 4-year university is always a cost-effective way to go because you are able to enter the workforce sooner after graduating from high school.
