According to Indeed.com’s 2018 of the Best Jobs in the US, not only are construction jobs booming, but many of them are making their debut the best jobs list.
Preconstruction manager (#5), construction estimator (#12), and construction manager (#19) are newcomers. Meanwhile, construction superintendent moved from # 24 on last year’s list to 6th place in 2018, with an overall 122% growth in postings since 2014.
Why so many construction jobs? In a recent post, Indeed Chief Economist Jed Kolko noted that this is part of a wider trend: the construction sector, along with mining, has seen the fastest job growth year over year as of this past December. Construction spending is soaring and three-quarters of employers in the sector reported plans to add staff in 2018.
