FROM SCHOOL TO WORK
According to AmericanRadioWorks.org, nearly 60% of all jobs in the U.S. economy require higher education.
But that means 40% don’t require one and there are jobs where you can start working right away.
You have so many options in the construction industry:
- Apply for an entry-level construction career
- Get on-the-job training while taking a part-time college course
Apply for an entry-level construction career
There are some construction jobs that you can start with no experience at all: general or skilled laborer, installer, painter, and the list goes on. You learn as you go and add more skills to your toolbelt as you progress.

Get on-the-job training while taking a part-time college course
If you want more training before working in the construction industry, that’s an option too! College courses are available and have varying lengths and types of qualifications available.
You may have to be supervised or get sign offs on your work until you’re fully qualified, but it does give you real life experience in the role. The benefit is that you can earn money while studying for a qualification.
