Build a career with construction jobs and trades jobs

Construction jobs are ramping up.

Whether your specialty lies in masonry, carpentry, inspection, electrical work, or something else entirely, know that construction jobs are poised for growth overall. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of construction and extraction occupations is projected to grow 10% from 2018 to 2028, faster than the average for all occupations. That translates to a gain of about 704,000 new jobs. 

And if you've got the skills, there are employers out there looking for you. In fact, 80% of construction firms report they are having a hard time filling hourly craft positions that represent the bulk of the construction workforce, according to the results of a 2019 industry-wide survey released by Autodesk and the Associated General Contractors of America.
