Top 10 Reasons to Pursue a Career in Construction: #10

#10: We WOW Family and Friends  with our Projects, We Build Cool Stuff.

The pride of accomplishment in construction surpasses almost any other industry. We get to be right in the middle of creating and building all sorts of cool stuff, from cathedrals to smart lighting controls. Construction people have to actually get things built and make them work.

I understand other industries also give a sense of accomplishment (hitting that elusive quality quota in a factory or balancing the account for a bookkeeper), but few industries pack the whallop of watching a building rise out of the ground.

The pride of accomplishment further increases because of the one-time nature of most construction projects. Each new project comes with a unique set of challenges and aggravations. Construction Supervisors struggle to sort out those challenges in an efficient way to complete projects on time and budget. Isn’t it great when a plan comes together?
