USA Construction Jobs Prospect in 2014

It’s those construction jobs that possess the just-right blend of high demand and low unemployment that make the strongest showing for 2014.

With more than 78,000 new openings, the construction management work force should expand 16.1 percent by 2022.

The unemployment rate for this industry’s top-ranking job, construction manager, is 4.7 percent, helping it to rise from No. 50 in 2013 to No. 37 this year.

Some of the fastest-growing occupations hail from this industry – like brickmasons and blockmasons (35.5 percent) and insulation contractors (37.6 percent) – but their growth rate wasn’t enough to ensure them a spot in the top 100.

Construction is an area that continues to dig out of the hole it was in. Debt loads are freeing up, people are going back to work and the housing market is improving, so there’s potential.
