Careers in Construction Month

October 1 – October 31, 2013

A key aspect of the Build Your Future (BYF) initiative’s mission is to show potential industry recruits the rewarding career opportunities available in construction. Due to the tremendous response from BYF supporters and other organizations that have recognized and supported Careers in Construction Week, BYF is expanding its efforts to spread the word about construction careers by naming October 2013 “Careers in Construction Month.” For more information on Careers in Construction Month, please download the press release.

Educators, employers and industry associations are also encouraged to write their legislators and Governors to support official state proclamations recognizing the month of October as Careers in Construction Month. A sample proclamation is available on the BYF resources page.
