The Residential Construction Industry is HIRING!
The demand is real for skilled laborers in the residential construction industry. The Home Builders Association of Michigan is predicting 16,515 single family homes will be built in 2017. This is a 4.2% increase over 2016 for single family homes.
Based on data from the Bureau of Labor Market Information and Strategic Initiatives, there were 2,412 openings in December 2016 in the 17 trades we have focused on.
Many thanks go to Pro-Build for being a Resume Sponsor and to the HBA of Midland for sponsoring ten lunches for career technical education students.
We survey employers in the industry on a monthly basis to see who is hiring, and each month we create a Help Wanted directory.
