The Construction Industry
People just like you are needed for the huge and growing construction industry. Each year the United States alone adds more than $600 billion worth of new construction projects such as new hospitals, schools, highways, bridges, homes, office buildings, stores, etc. That's about 10% of America's Gross Domestic Product.
But don't let big figures hide the fact that no construction project gets done without people to design, plan and organize it, order materials, obtain and operate the equipment, schedule work, and supervise the jobs. There are 6.9 million Americans who are responsible for building the structures you see. All are talented people with special training.
Many more people with specific skills and talents are needed. There are over 240,000 jobs available in construction each year. Now's your chance to grab an opportunity.
