Building Construction career path logo

The Building and Construction Trades industry needs people who can work with their heads and hands to design and build office buildings, hospitals, shopping malls and housing communities. Once architects come up with a design, it takes a team of skilled trades people like plumbers, electricians, masons, roofers, framers and more to turn it into a finished structure. Craftsmen in this industry sector need a strong math background, good technology skills, and solid on-the-job experience.
