Not all jobs that people do are skilled roles; in fact a lot of the jobs that support the everyday life of what people do are made up of unskilled jobs. Unskilled jobs are hands on jobs that require a great deal of physical effort and strength in some cases.

Some of these jobs are actually quite well paid, and the great news is that you can build skills as you go along. It's much better to be in a job like this than not be in one at all, but that's something that a lot of people forget. It's brilliant because once you're in your job, you can completely build a career around you, as long as you're proactive.
