Handy workers are the gears that keep communities and homes running smoothly. They perform regular maintenance on equipment to ensure they continue to operate with minimal to no problems. They also offer well-rounded knowledge on fixing or assembling various aspects of residential and commercial spaces. And when a job calls for a specialized technician, they know who to call. There’s plenty of opportunity in this industry for a multitasker who enjoys building their network and continuously developing their skill.
