Careers in the Construction Industry: Trends and Overview

Construction job growth will build on an improving economy with an increase of 21% through at least 2020, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

As much of the country’s infrastructure continues to age, and need for replacements and updating increases, the construction industry  will continue grow in the coming years as contractors move in to  fill a large segment of that business.

In addition to erecting new structures, many in the construction industry are tasked with tearing the old ones down. And as the popular migration to cities continues, the construction spaces are on the rise.
