Advantages of a Career in Construction

Construction has always been a great career for those who like to work with their hands and dread the thought of being cooped up in an office all day, but there are many more benefits to a career in construction! Advantages include:

  1. Job Security. According to the Associated Builders and Contractors of Central Florida (ABC Central Florida), the construction industry is booming and is in need of workers. That means that your job will not be outsourced to another country, replaced by automation, or disappear due to lack of work. The construction industry has been growing for many years, and forecasts don’t show it slowing down in the future.
  2. Many Options. There are many different branches in the construction industry to go in to, including electrical, plumbing, HVAC, carpenter, pipefitting, sheet metal worker, and much more.
  3. A Good Salary. Construction workers make a good salary. Average salaries range from $48,000 to $60,000 a year. Most companies also offer benefits like healthcare coverage, 401Ks, vacation time, and more!
  4. A Debt-Free Alternative to College. According to data shared by ABC Central Florida, two-thirds of college students leave school with $26,000 in debt from paying for their education. Many areas of construction offer apprenticeships where you get paid as you learn. Then, when you’re ready to start your career, you’ll do so free of debt!
