Careers in Construction Month: October 2014

October 1 – October 31, 2014

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 supported careers in construction, BYF has expanded its efforts to spread the word about construction careers and announced October 2014 as “Careers in Construction Month.”

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. Download BYF’s Proclamation Guide to find out how to apply for a proclamation in your state.
