College Decision Time: Make sure students choose right!

May 1st is that day when students must choose their path: college decision day!

Your students might be feeling stressed out and overwhelmed to make such a huge decision, especially given the current economic pressures. Some students aren’t asking themselves the right questions!  Here are a few to consider:

  • What career will I choose? What are the job prospects for this career?
  • Does my school specialize in what I want to do?
  • Is there a master’s degree available?

For students who can’t make up their minds or don’t have a clear path, make sure they consider a career in the building industry.

  • Construction is a lucrative and satisfying industry: Construction project managers take home the highest salary in the construction industry with a median salary of $91,370, or $44.89 per hour.
  • The building industry never runs out of jobs: Construction project management jobs are expected to grow at an 11% rate from 2016 to 2026.
  • There are equal work opportunities for everyoneThere are a projected 44,800 jobs in this industry and room for growth in both salary and leadership.
