We’re celebrating Careers in Construction Month, a month dedicated to raising awareness about the myriad career opportunities in the residential construction industry. This annual event is an excellent time to delve deeper into the world of residential construction and consider the potential it offers.
There’s no better place to learn about these opportunities and the latest trends in the industry than at the 2024 NAHB International Builders’ Show® (IBS).
Why Careers in Construction Month is Significant
Careers in Construction Month addresses the skills gap and well-documented shortage of skilled labor in the construction industry. Careers in Construction Month aims to highlight the various roles available and attract a new generation of workers to fill this gap.
This month also helps to demystify the industry. Many people believe that construction careers are limited to manual labor roles. However, the sector is vast, with roles ranging from architects and project managers to sales, marketing and more. This month is an opportunity to showcase the breadth of career paths available.
Honoring the month also has an economic impact. The residential construction industry plays a vital role in the economy. By promoting and filling career roles, we ensure that the industry remains robust and continues to contribute to economic growth.
