We’re Recognizing Careers in Construction All October Long

3 Oct

rbww_28October is Careers in Construction Month, with a proclamation from Gov. Greg Abbott encouraging Texans to learn more about the construction industry and to celebrate the contributions of the construction workforce.

Spearheaded by the National Center for Construction Education & Research and Build Your Future, Careers in Construction Month is gaining momentum with 29 states already filing their proclamations to celebrate this nationwide observance.

This month, let’s recognize skilled construction workers like Savannah Marvets, who is completing an apprenticeship program to become a licensed plumber. Let’s also congratulate the students at Lanier High School who are participating in an electrician pre-apprentice dual credit course to become the next generation of skilled electricians keeping the lights on in Austin.

Occupations like plumbers and electricians are just two of the many skilled trades now in high demand by employers in Austin/Travis County. With shortages of skilled craft professionals increasing across the country, now is the time to promote and support construction careers in every state.

How will you show your appreciation for all the skilled men and women working hard to build America and motivate youth to pursue a successful career in the construction industry? Tell us in a comment below!
