The Construction industry has expanded in my opinion. I started as a Carpenter thinking I will end up managing multiple Residential projects. After getting my degree I worked with a flooring company managing some big projects. Now I have been working as a Construction manager in the Wireless Telecom industry. The opportunities as a Construction Manager with a degree seem to wide open.
As I went to a Flooring company some of my fellow class mates worked as assistant construction managers and assistant Project managers even.
I hope this helps
