Job Outlook Predicting Job Opening Surge

Oh what a difference a year makes. For many construction companies, this year marks a noticeable turn in increased work – but without an increase in the availability of skilled labor. All over the country it’s getting harder to find the right people to get the job done.

Simply Hired, a leading employment website for job listings, shows an increase in job openings of 34.7% over this time last year. That’s huge. Nearly all industries and occupations posted gains in the past month, and it’s only expected to grow.

If you’ve never used a skilled construction staffing firm before, or have tried someone else, it may be time to give Skillforce a call. We work on thousands of construction projects every year, and have tens of thousands of skilled construction workers at our disposal.
