Be Part of the Team that Builds it All...Construction!
It is impossible to go through one day without coming into contact with something that the construction industry has provided to you. Whether it's your home, your school, the road that takes you where you are going, or the electricity that lights your way, construction is part of it all. In fact, construction is our nation's largest employer!
Think about it - the Empire State Building, Hoover Dam, Sears Tower, the Golden Gate Bridge, Windsor Castle, the Capitol building in Washington, the Taj Mahal, the Eiffel Tower...
construction is huge.
