According to unmuld.com, 32% of workers between the ages of 25 and 44 consider changing careers and 29% actually have.
If you’re considering a career change or just want a change of pace, construction could be the answer you’ve been looking for! There are lots of jobs that you could move into right away and others that require on-the-job training, apprenticeships, or degrees.
The best part of changing careers is many skills you use at your current job are transferable, even if you don’t think they are.
If you have experience in management, every construction project requires that skill. If you work in tech, more buildings are designed with high-tech software and there are IT support workers on most construction projects. If you’re a designer or consider yourself a creative problem solver, that’s a great skill to bring to a construction project. For those with a manufacturing background or have experience working in logistics, you have what it takes to work in the construction industry.
The bottom line is no matter what job you’re currently in, you have skills that can transfer to the construction industry. So, what are you waiting for?
