Construction Management is an exciting field and rewarding career choice. Professional construction managers earn excellent salaries working in any one of the many sectors of the construction industry. Construction is the second-largest industry in the United States, with over $1 trillion in total volume and accounting for approximately 8% of the nation’s GDP. It is the industry responsible for constructing the buildings and infrastructure that are so vital to the quality of life.
Construction is a technically driven, complex business that requires knowledgeable, highly-skilled managers to lead operations. There is, and will be, a continuing demand for professional construction managers to work in various construction organizations such as construction management firms, general contractors, specialty contractors, design-builders, consulting engineers, architects and real estate developers. Construction Management practitioners are also employed in various capacities as project owners, suppliers, regulators, lenders and other stakeholders involved with construction. These positions can include project managers, coordinators, estimators, schedulers, safety specialists, business development managers and many others. Some even rise to senior-level executive positions, while others own and operate their own firms.
