Attention to detail and accuracy are important in this position, as well as exceptional knowledge of construction design and engineering in order to create safe and durable structures.

Some mathematical skills are necessary to perform tasks such as reading tape measures and blueprints. Tasks can be performed independently, so it is important to be able to be self-motivated; however, good teamwork skills are also important, as these carpenters may work with others, such as carpenters, construction workers, architects, and engineers.
A few years of prior experience may be required for this position, and experience is often obtained from an apprenticeship or prior position. A valid driver’s license is generally required to reach different job sites, and a high school diploma may be a minimum requirement. Some jobs require education including classroom instruction and hands-on training, and a certificate in carpentry may be required by some employers. (Copyright 2017 PayScale.com)
