A recent article by the Denver Post showed that Colorado construction companies are still struggling in finding workers who are willing to fill all the jobs in the industry. Despite the COVID-19 restrictions and setbacks, there are many construction projects that are still in play in Colorado, as well as many investors who are hoping to start more work on transforming Colorado’s major cities in 2021.
The job projections for construction jobs in Colorado are, of course, not as optimistic as they were before the start of 2020, but they are still more favorable for workers than in many other areas. Even though more than 400,000 construction workers throughout the US lost their jobs since March, the Colorado construction industry is still growing and still looking for talent.
The prospect for 2021 shows that, even if you’re not qualified, or you don’t have more than 1-2 years of experience as a construction worker, you can still find excellent opportunities to work and train your skills in the state of Colorado. Despite the fact that some of the skilled trades can take years to master, many companies are willing to offer training and support even for workers who have never tried construction work in the past.
If you want to work in construction in Colorado, however, it is advisable to make your move sooner rather than later, as with so many people looking for work throughout the country, some of them will likely move to Colorado and fill up many of the available positions.
