I believe that the construction industry provides such a unique career experience that is hard to match in any other industry. We get to interact with such a broad spectrum of companies and individuals that uniquely contribute to building incredible facilities. Not many professions get to see such a tangible outcome of their hard work. We get to see buildings that we collaborated to bring into existence – offices, hospitals, schools, data centers, etc. – paint the skyline of the cities we live in. When you couple that with the training and career development opportunities that exist within the construction industry, it yields an incredible passion for what you do.
