In Construction

The world is constantly expanding its horizons. More and more buildings are being constructed and rules and regulations are getting tighter.

That’s a good thing for you. Your construction management skills can safeguard you to expand together with this world.

Research shows that employment of construction managers is projected to grow 11% from 2016 to 2026; faster than the average for all occupations.

This means more & more construction managers will be needed as the level of construction activity continues to grow. In addition to construction management jobs openings arising from employment growth, many additional openings should result annually from the need to replace workers who transfer to other occupations…or leave the labour force for other reasons.

A substantial number of seasoned managers are also expected to retire over the next decade, likely resulting in a large number of openings.

What better way to take advantage of all these opportunities than by starting with preparing an outstanding resume.
