5 Reasons to Choose a Career in Construction

I started as an ICC with Mortenson but after three years transitioned from that role to field management and worked my way from project engineer to my current role as a project manager. What is most fulfilling about construction management is being able to evaluate and influence design, then ultimately plan and manage the construction process to bring a design to life.

3. Next-level Job Satisfaction

It's not a 9-5 desk job — any background or talent has a place in the construction industry.
Whether you have a certificate or a degree in engineering or communications, Mortenson has fulfilling and meaningful opportunities for you. Earn above the national average salary and apply your experience and talent in ways you never thought possible. We've been voted "Best Place to Work" 40+ times regionally over the past decade because we redefine what's possible.

4. Life-changing Opportunities

Meet people and go places you've only dreamt of.
Different states, new heights, and new perspectives are always on the horizon with Mortenson. We're always on the forefront of the latest industry technology and innovations, and have construction careers popping up in locations all over the U.S.

5. Make an Impact

Wind turbines, solar panel installation, and Zero Net Carbon buildings that change skylines are all projects to be a part of.
Knowing what you are building is improving the environment and humanity is empowering. With the renewable energy sector growing at unprecedented rates, join a team that's Building for the Greater Good. Mortenson is consistently rated a top construction company in the U.S., which means we need people like you to continue the legacy of building what's next.

Not only have I become financially independent, but mentally I'm just so much stronger. I am able to chase after my goals. I'm doing a project management course right now and looking to expand my skills. I have discovered a passion for the industry and making it more accessible to women and people of color. The possibilities are endless in this industry and you can make it what you want it to be.
