Careers in construction offer a wide variety of both personal and professional growth opportunities. There are many different roles that the industry offers, allowing you to try new roles and receive promotions.

Construction is also a hands-on career. The skills that you learn are not job specific, and you’re able to apply that knowledge to everyday life.

And if you have no experience, that’s no problem. Wanzek has an Apprenticeship Program that will pay you to learn and work. The program is registered by the Department of Labor and accredited by the National Center for Construction Education and Research. Check out the details on our Apprenticeship Program page.
