The Job Board You Can’t Afford to Ignore
Have you tried a Construction-focused Job Board to find your next career?
Did you know? October is “Careers in Construction Month” across the country. We could think of no better way to celebrate than by encouraging readers of this blog to consider a new career in the commercial construction industry. Master Builders of Iowa (MBI) is the recognized leader of the construction industry within our state, and we care deeply about our membership and the labor force that helps create our built environment.
Without question, this year has been a difficult year for many Iowans. With the increase in unemployment as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, MBI is proactively marketing our wonderful industry to those looking for a career. This could be your chance to make a change and consider an in-demand career in an essential industry. So how do you get started? We have created a job board specifically dedicated to posting real-time open positions within Iowa’s commercial construction industry at www.IowaConstructionJobs.com. On the job board, you will find full & part-time positions, training opportunities and apprenticeships all available RIGHT NOW!
Last week alone, there were more than 100 available jobs listed on the job board statewide. Open positions can be filtered by keywords, location or even by specific employer. The available positions are captured in real-time from real employers. Once the positions are filled, the job postings are removed from the website by the employer.
Like all industries, construction is in a war for talent. The difference between us and the others is that we have been developing rapidly at a pace not seen in generations. Our industry is rich, technology-focused and comprises of quality opportunities for anyone entering it.
If you’re interested in exploring the careers in our industry, we’d also like to invite you to take time to explore www.BuildIowa.org where you will find industry information on 27 different careers including expected salaries, training requirements and qualifications, as well as a direct link back to the job board.
Beginning a career search can at times be overwhelming. Let us help you get started. Check out www.iowaconstructionjobs.com and www.buildiowa.org TODAY. I’d also love the chance to interact with you directly and see how we can help you get started.
