The construction industry offers many opportunities for rewarding careers, from general laborers and journeypersons to management careers.  In the construction process we have careers such as cost control, financial management, quality of construction, construction project administration, project control for complex commercial or industrial construction projects, business management, contractors and law.

Careers are available in management of commercial, industrial, institutional, civil and military construction in the roles of contractor, developer, subcontractor, owner representative or consultant.


All of the trades listed in the Career Opportunities section of this website are always actively seeking out both minorities and women to come in to their respective local unions.


It is also important to note that the organized construction industry is responsible for the majority of women and minorities in the industry, and for the majority of women and minorities who graduate from apprenticeship programs.
