As your child’s greatest advocate, we understand that you want what is best for them: to be healthy, happy and successful, both as children and as adults. As a parent you play an integral role in guiding them along the right path. As your child receives their high school diploma, we hope you encourage them to explore the many career opportunities in Montana’s construction industry.
A career in construction offers good pay and benefits, the ability to continue education, the potential to advance, and the opportunity to be one’s own boss. In the next ten years, the construction industry will need additional workers to cover an expanding industry and a retiring workforce. Your son or daughter might have what it takes to build the next stadium, bridge, highway, home, or even your town’s next hospital. Help your child consider a career in the construction industry and watch them build a successful and rewarding future!
