Plenty of job opportunities are available in the U.S. construction industry, but recent data shows that many employers are finding it difficult to find qualified specialists to fill these roles. According to CNNMoney, the construction sector added 28,000 positions last month, but some industry experts noted that skilled contractors are becoming increasingly hard to find.??
Johnny Yates, president of a construction company in Texas, stated that his company has struggled to find talented experts to add to its team in 2013.

Additionally, some employers in this segment may consider training programs and financial aid to help prospective job seekers go back to school to learn the necessary skills to become effective contributors.??
