Constructing a Career to Love in Carpentry!

Many people have a pretty clear idea of ‘who’ works in the trades sector – but things are shaking up with more diversity than ever before!

That’s what Ken Lim, Leading Hand Carpenter with Imperial Builders, tells us in our latest employee interview.

Hear from Ken as he shares:

  • Who Imperial Builders are, what his role involves and the different types of projects he gets to be a part of.
  • How he became a Leading Hand Carpenter, what it involves and how to progress to this senior position.
  • What attracted Ken to becoming a carpenter and seeking out his career.
  • How he went against the traditional grain of pursuing a white-collar job to find his passion in the carpentry trade.
  • Some of the biggest conceptions about working in trades and why the best thing about working in the industry is the fantastic set of skills he’s developed.
  • How a trades apprenticeship is an opportunity to learn from day one, get involved, and make your career what you want it to be.

It was refreshing to hear about Ken’s career pivot and how he flipped tradition on its head to go after what he really wanted from his career – we love it! It sounds like there’s been a better time to explore where a career in trades could take you.
