The third annual Careers in Construction Week, Oct. 15-19, is a nationwide image campaign designed to increase public awareness of the hard work and contributions of our nation's craft professionals. This week will promote recognition among parents, teachers, and students of the rewarding career opportunities available in construction and is dedicated to the men and women who build our future.

“2006 was an overwhelming success,” said Don Whyte, NCCER president. “Thirty-two governors proclaimed Careers in Construction Week in their states. We encourage everyone to reach out and get involved in this nationwide event.”

Contractors, schools, and industry associations throughout the country will conduct career fairs and various construction-related activities to help promote construction career opportunities in their communities.
