Is being a construction manager a good career path.
I enjoy hands on work and enjoy designing and building stuff. I'm only in highschool and have been looking at some career options and a construction manager looked like something I might be into. I wanna know what I might need or be looking forward to if I was to go into this job.

Good Question!, Excellent demonstration of initiative and planning, both characteristics of a successful construction manager. Please allow me to share the link to the US Department of Labor's Occupational Handbook, specifically focused on Construction Manager. The US Depart of Labor's professionals research specific career roles, talking with the people in those careers, checking educational and/or training needed, validates salary, future needs of those professions. The Information is up to date, and provide contact information for the job's professional association.
With the passage of the recent law, the funding opportunities for grant money for you to attend the school for training you would need, have significantly increased!
You are off to a good start and I wish you much happiness and success in the career you chose!
