Before starting your career in the construction industry, you should carefully craft a resume, cover letter and prepare some talking points for the job interview.

For entry level positions, construction contractors are most interested in someone who shows initiative and is not afraid of physical work, rather than those with relevant experience or technical training.

You may be surprised how far these traits can take you in construction, and if you show aptitude, you will quickly learn skills and knowledge on the job that will lead to increased responsibility and eventually promotion.

You may well be able to walk into a contractor’s site or regional office, fill out an app and get hired!
