Construction Industry On The Rise
The consensus points to manufacturing, retail, lodging & warehouse, and higher education & hospitals. The most optimistic findings concern employment trends in the construction sector. More than half of contractors hired new employees last year, and a significant percentage are planning to hire in 2014. For many of companies, the number of to-hire positions is about 25% of their total staff. Most construction companies are on the lookout for skilled workers. The biggest demand is for supervisors, estimating professionals, equipment operators and carpenters, which offers great opportunities for experts in these fields.
Contractors express immense optimism for the industry as a whole, expecting it to grow significantly in the next few years. This makes them more open to new projects and working in a broader geographical area. With such high hopes and good economic indicators, why miss this chance to start or further expand your contracting business today?
