A career in construction offers good pay and benefits, ability to continue education, potential to advance, and opportunities to be your own boss. In the next ten years, the construction industry will need additional workers to cover new work and a retiring workforce. And it’s not just careers in the skilled trades. Administrative, design, and construction management careers are all on the rise.
