October is "Careers in Construction" Month!

In an effort to increase public awareness and to inspire the next generation of construction craft professionals, our partners at the National Center for Construction Education Research (NCCER) and Build Your Future (BYF) have proclaimed October as Careers in Construction Month!
From NCCER's website:

With shortages of skilled craft professionals increasing across the country, now is the time to promote and support construction careers in every state. Take the time to appreciate all the hard-working, highly skilled men and women who build America and motivate our youth to choose a successful, lucrative career in the industry.
“Today we know that 70% of the jobs that exist in the U.S. economy require something less than a four-year college degree,” Tim Johnson, founder and president of the TJC Group, shared at SkillsUSA 2018 National Leadership and Skills Conference. “Everything in the economy begins with construction."
"We don’t have roads. We don’t have schools. We don’t have factories. None of it exists without skilled craft professionals. It is critically important that we promote these careers.”

To get more information on how you can get involved, visit Careers In Construction Month. And while you're at it, make sure to check out the new scholarship opportunity we're offering to our members in a construction related field through our partnership with NCCER and BYF!
