Considering Moving for Construction Work?
Filed under: Industry outlook — Tags: — nedpelger

The construction job market remains tough in much of America. Yet bright spots exist. The explosion in shale gas projects should be considered by anyone seriously looking for construction work. As in all extractive industry projects, you have to go where the gas is, but it’s an option. The AGC map below provides locations.

Derek Singleton recently wrote an article “Should You Build or Should You Go? The Best States for a Construction Job” which shows an AGC of America graphic about the change in construction employment in States.

He concludes that apartments, shale gas and industrial projects all look healthy and will provide opportunities. I particularly liked the AGC conclusions about the current construction outlook.

Remember, successful people do the things unsuccessful people don’t want to do and won’t do. What does success look like for you in today’s (and tomorrow’s) world?
