Growth Potential For Construction Management

Despite disappointing overall job growth in the second half of 2015, the construction industry's continued rebound is a decided positive. And there's reason for optimism ahead, particularly for those seeking upper-level careers in construction.

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) reports 8,000 new construction jobs added in September 2015, the sector's seventh consecutive month of growth. The climb to pre-recession employment continues, and among the most promising areas within the construction industry are managerial positions.

A study conducted by Colorado State University reports job placement of graduates from its Department of Construction Management nearing 100%.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports roughly 184,000 working in construction in 2014 held managerial positions. CSU's report jibes with BLS estimates that the field's 10-year growth, from 2012 to 2022, should reach 16%.

With a median income of nearly $83,000, managerial positions can be lucrative as well as promising for job seekers.
