Construction Management Job Overview
A construction crew is only as strong as the manager working with that crew. Construction Management jobs provide teams and crews with a strong leader who can keep everyone motivated and help their projects come in on time and under budget. Managers remain involved in the project from its early days when it is nothing more than an outline on a piece of paper to the day the owners cut the ribbon. They must understand the finances involved in the project, including how to order new supplies, hire workers and use contractors to complete the project. They also need strong leadership skills and the ability to work independently in the field.
Construction Management Job Education Requirements
In the construction field, experience is just as important as education. Many companies only hire managers with a high level of experience working in the field and on projects of different sizes. Applicants must demonstrate their leadership skills, show that they have a background in customer service and that they can speak and communicate effectively with others. Though some employers do want managers with a college degree, others prefer hiring managers with years of experience.
