October is Careers in Contruction Month

NAHB is inviting all student members and local associations to join us in celebrating Careers in Construction Month in October. The goal is to get involved in your community to help increase public awareness of the opportunities available in construction trades professions.

According to the latest Bureau of Labor Statistics data and NAHB analysis, there were 208,000 open construction sector jobs in June, which marks the second highest monthly count of open, unfilled jobs since May 2007.

The building trades offer a great career path. And, the residential construction industry is one of the few sectors where demand for new workers is rising. Let's encourage parents, teachers, counselors and students to take a closer look at the career opportunities available in residential construction and understand that a vocational education offers satisfying career paths and financial gains. Learn more about how you can get involved.
