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.

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 opportunities you will have pride in and find fulfillment in. Earn above the national average salary, using your talent in a way you never knew possible. We've been voted "Best Place to Work" 40+ times regionally over the past decade because we redefine possible.

Meet people and go places you've only dreamt of.
Different states, new heights, and new perspectives are always on the horizon with Mortenson. Always on the forefront of the newest construction industry technology and innovations, we have construction careers popping up wherever you live and in unexpected locations all over the US.

5. Make an Impact

Wind turbines, solar panel installation, and Zero Net Carbon buildings that change skylines are all projects you can be a part of.
Knowing what you are building is for the greater good of 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 US, 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.
