Become and Advocate for Construction as a Professional Career Choice

The residential construction community and its supporters must advocate for the industry by educating young people, their parents, school administrators, and counselors on the professional career opportunities that exist in construction.

Opportunities in construction are abundant. According to the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER), in September 2021, the United States has 430,000 open construction jobs, and it is estimated that there will be shortage of 1 million construction trades professionals by 2023. The problem is projected to get worse, with an estimated 53% of the current construction workforce retiring by 2036. Demand means opportunities. With thousands of jobs available, it is easy for future craft professionals to find training and work.
