Construction creeping back to life

When housing tanked, so did a lot of the construction industry. The “stimulus” jobs were not ready to be shoveled and the profession sort of blobbed out.

Now, at least in AZ, some construction jobs are returning, while college grads are still looking.

Of course, some people in construction have college degrees—but you know what I meant.

The problem is that job skills and jobs don’t always match up. A house framer can’t start putting up a bridge.

Or maybe they want medical building experience instead of just office building experience. They don’t want to hear from highway builders, that’s for sure.

In California—earthquake safety building is big. Well, nifty. I guess the bottom line is do your homework before you build your career in building.
