Careers in the Building Trades: A Growing Demand

Building trade workers play a major role in the success of economies throughout the world. However, despite their pivotal role in our society, only six percent of students consider a career in the trades. That?s surprising because trades workers are the most in-demand occupational field in the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. Salaries for some trades careers are higher than the average earnings for some occupations that require a bachelor?s or graduate degree. Building trade careers are diverse, exciting, and personally fulfilling. Plus the jobs cannot be sent overseas to foreign countries. Readers of Careers in the Building Trades: A Growing Demand will discover eight different trades careers and dozens of subspecialties, as well as learn about opportunities in green construction and the apprenticeship process.
