​Construction is a very diverse industry. In addition to building private residences and commercial properties, it also involves building roads and city infrastructure. The industry also includes mining, quarrying, and manufacturing. Construction is done not only by the people who actually do the work, but also by developers, designers, suppliers, and contractors, all of whom contribute to the process. The property industry overlaps with the construction industry, but focuses more on the sale and management of properties, as well as letting and redevelopment. While working in construction has many benefits, like any occupation, it isn't for everyone. Construction jobs are often physically demanding, so workers must be in reasonably good health. Roles in these fields require a lot of standing, walking, lifting, bending, and dealing with dust and noise. Projects often have tight deadlines, which can cause stress and overtime work to keep the job on track.

People who don't enjoy sitting in an office and staring at a computer screen may be interested in a career in construction. Every job will present its own challenges, and you will travel to different job sites. Construction jobs, particularly general laborers, don't require a lot of experience - a strong back and the ability to work hard are all that's needed. Alternatively, you will need certification on the machine you will operate if you want to become a heavy equipment operator. The certification process requires many hours of training to ensure the equipment is used safely and correctly. In order to obtain employment as a plumber, carpenter, or electrician, you typically need to complete a trade school program. To pursue a career in construction management, you will need to gain a strong understanding of the industry as well as develop strong supervisory and leadership skills.
