Hey Ricky, good questions. The construction field is a large industry with many jobs that vary in skill, difficulty, experience, and salary. It can be a very hard and difficult job to a less physical and rewarding career. The difficult part of the industry includes very physical jobs that require long hours lifting, moving, problem solving and being tired. Sometimes it is full of stress, because you have to perform at a high level and meet deadlines, even when things go wrong. This being said it can be a very rewarding job. It also is a job you can begin with very little experience or skills, and they will train you on the job while making relatively good wages for your skill level. You can easily advance and learn more skills and gain experience if you are ambitious and hard working. As far as wages they can also vary depending on skills and experience. Wages generally start off around $15.00 an hour for laborers with little experience or skills. The wage can become larger quickly depending on the skills you develop. At the higher end professionals with degrees, licenses, or other recognized certificates can easily earn significantly more. 25 to 75 dollars and hour. These include skilled tradesman (electricians, plumbers, welders, surveyors, HVAC, contractors, etc.). Also includes licensed professionals, (Architects, engineers, contractors, etc.). At the higher end of wage earners Are the business owners involved in the construction industry. They have the potential of earning millions of dollars. If you become interested in the construction industry, I would encourage you to talk to people already in the industry. Talk to them about their work, skills needed, experience needed, education needed, and if they enjoy what they are doing. They can provide you with good information and will often be willing to mentor you and help you. Also take time to evaluate what you are talented at and enjoy doing. Does that match up to jobs in the construction field? What skills are you willing to learn? Start out small, work hard and gain as much knowledge and skills as you can. Never be afraid of trying something new. Good luck.
