5 Reasons to Choose a Career in Construction
1. Demand is High
Construction jobs have steadily increased over the last decade — even during economic downturns.
Industry veterans are retiring and the need for smart, skilled workers continues to grow. The construction industry has a faster than average pace of projected growth at 4.82% over the next 5 years, with over 212,000 new jobs already created in 2023. (bls.gov).
2. Create Your Future
Build a meaningful career with any level of education.
With internships, mentorship programs, and leadership tracks, you can choose multiple paths for your career in construction. Mortenson works with the Architecture, Construction, and Engineering (ACE) Mentor Program, and NCCR for apprenticeship programs where you get to develop skills and experience construction first-hand. We also created LeadBLU, a leadership and inclusion program to inspire lifelong learning.
3. Next-level Job Satisfaction

Whether you have a certificate or a degree in engineering or communications, Mortenson has fulfilling and meaningful opportunities for you.
