No matter how much they might enjoy the satisfaction of their construction job, if they have a difficult job manager, it has the ability to completely strip away the worker's desire to drive into work in the morning. Difficult managers are apparent in every work force, but when it comes to heavy machinery, strenuous lifting and difficult tasks, the last thing a construction...

Despite the changes in the job market, careers in construction management are growing more and more competitive, but the manager position remains an essential job in the construction field.

We don’t need to remind you that the building industry took quite a hit during the last recession. This year’s forecast for construction employment , says the Dodge Outlook Report, is also pretty iffy. Single-family and multifamily housing will show about 10% improvement – not great, but at least it’s trending in the right direction. Industrial construction is forecast to slip in 2012.  Don’t expect a flood of opportunity in public works – due to budget cuts, new projects are harder...

If you've worked in this industry for years, you know that construction of new homes virtually stopped for a while, forcing many in the industry to work fewer hours for less pay - or not at all.

Construction workers seeking gainful employment may be best served pursuing specialty trade opportunities. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) released its August job report on Friday, which stated there was “little change” in construction employment. However, the Associated General Contractors of America (AGCA) reports there were 8,200 new hires in specialty trade fields, offering some relief to those still feeling the effects of the 2008 housing bubble burst.

Construction workers seeking job opportunities have the best odds in the residential sector. Though still lagging behind national unemployment averages, construction employment outlook is creeping upward due to home sales. Housing numbers improved markedly in September, with new home sales improving 5.7%. The 27% increase during the past year brings the United States to a high not seen since the recession deepened in 2009. Housing sales jumped along with a 14.4% increase in home building. Since...
