Construction Jobs Available, But Right Skills Are Required

The rapid hiring that made 2014 a stellar year for job gains is showing no sign of slowing down. However, filling openings in some fields is not easy.

This is especially true for construction.

The unemployed don’t have the right skills for the jobs that are available. This view assumes that there are millions of unemployed construction workers or factory employees, for example, who aren’t able to find work in growing sectors such as health care.

There are some highly-skilled jobs in software development or advanced manufacturing that do appear to be hard to fill. But some economists point out that there are more unemployed workers than open jobs in nearly every major industry. If there was a so-called “skills mismatch,” you would expect to see that in only some industries.
