Construct Your Career as a Craft Professional
October 22, 2019
Generations of skilled tradespeople built Arizona from the ground up, and their legacies are left behind everywhere you look. When you are secure in your home, driving on the highway, flying in an airplane, or admiring a monument, you have a craft professional to thank. Without the historic work of skilled tradespeople, the West Valley would still be an empty desert: a far cry from the busy metropolis it is today.
Nearly ten thousand craft professional jobs stand empty in Maricopa County right now. By 2022, there will be over 155,000 vacant positions in Arizona’s construction industry. Nationwide, that number is in the millions. What will Arizona’s future look like if no one steps in to fill those shoes?
Fortunately, the Phoenix area is growing at an unprecedented rate. With more and more young people graduating from area high schools and entering the work force, there are plenty of skilled, talented individuals to build Arizona’s future. YOU are part of this demographic.
