Harry’s Answer

Any profession can be tiring and boring if you let it. I have been in the construction industry for over 40 years and I can say that I have never been bored with it. The job is challenging and rewarding. You will get out of it what you put into it. Construction is about learning and growing day by day and there is never any end to what you can learn if you open your mind and put the effort into every task. I would not change these last 40 plus years for anything. It has provided well for me and my family and I have worked on some wonderful projects over the years that challenged my mind and abilities but that is what growing personally is all about.

Robert’s Answer

Yes, construction can be hard on the body. Miles of walking up and down steps carring supplies and tools to the job site. Doing the job in all kinds of weather and extremely conditions to repair or install a device that provides essential power, water, gas, and all other utilities that make the building safe for those who never will understand what it took for them to do their job.
The up side is remembering those good times and jobs you performed with pride. Pointing them out to your family and friends.

The body takes a beating but in the end you can say with pride that you had something to do with the success of the job.

William’s Answer

Hello Roel,
I having been working in the construction industry for 50 years now and it has had its ups and downs like every industry. I can honestly say that it has given me a wonderful life experience. So much to learn and still to learn, always something changing in the industry and if you are with the right company then you become part of something bigger.
Of course you must be prepared to put in long shifts on occasions and maybe miss out on some days out with family and friends, also working in challenging conditions but the bright times have always outshone the dull stuff.
My advice would be to give it a try and you will soon find out if its for you.
Good Luck
Thank you comment icon Thank you William, this profession has a lot of good cause. Even though it takes away somethings, but sacrifices must be made & thanks for not sugar coating things. Roel
