While the construction industry is predicting a shortage of skilled workers, Construction firms are doing something about it with Arizona Construction Career Days, an annual event for all high school students in the state.
This year over 1000 teachers and students toured the exhibits and had opportunities to operate power tools, heavy equipment and experience the diversity of work that the construction industry offers. Whether you have a high school diploma or a college degree, the jobs in construction offer good pay and a career path that can take you from laborer to CEO.
