The students of Tiyan High School were treated to career advice from DIY Network TV host Kaylene McCabe who spoke about career opportunities in the construction industry.
McCabe is a contractor, TV host and trades advocate. For five seasons, DIY Network’s Rescue Renovation showcased Kayleen’s skills and wit as she swept in and saved almost one hundred ill-fated home renovations.
She’s an ardent advocate of trade careers and education, long seen as inferior to traditional four-year college degrees and white-collar jobs. Her goal in the visit is to shed light on the rising demand for trade professionals that’s outpacing vocational training, as well as trying to help restore America’s respect for the trades in the process.
During her talk, McCabe touched on the many career opportunities in the construction industry as well as encouraged female students to consider this career path.
