Hello Trenton, this is a great question. It is important to view your career from a bigger scope. Since you mentioned that you would like to start your own construction company, it will take more than just being good in construction. If you are interested on working in construction to learn and become an expert, here is a site that will help you see the wages earned by trade. https://www.bls.gov/ooh/construction-and-extraction/home.htm

Brent’s Answer

Trenton,

It's great to hear such enthusiasm, especially in the desire to learn, travel, meet new people, and have new experiences. Construction is full of opportunities to do these things, and construction companies, be they big or small, are always looking for people who are dedicated and willing to travel to various locations throughout the United States and the world. Construction requires good communication skills, people skills, and the ability to work in a team environment, not to mention technical skills in hands on craftsmanship and/or management. The link Julio provided looks to be accurate for various salary's but does not include management positions. As a construction company owner (management), you will set your own salary. You will make more money as you progress in your career.

Stephen’s Answer

Construction is so broad, there are so many specialists and different opportunities it's too hard to give a salary range.


If you want to own a Construction company I would look towards getting an MBA. Owners aren't really participating in building things, they're involved in acquiring jobs connecting with government representatives, and giving investor presentations.


If you want to be a contractor and own you're own company, I would get a trade and become a journeyman in that trade.

If you want to be a project manager, there are many different avenues to get there but an engineering degree would be am asset.
