Pre-employment Testing & Assessment Evaluation Questions

Should an employee keep focus on construction salary or his contribution to his construction employer?

As the agent of your own construction career, keep your focus on the contribution you can make to an construction employer. In the selling stage of your conversations with a prospective construction employer, you have an opportunity to show how your work will help create more value for the construction employer and its shareholders. Your contribution will stand out if, in addition to meeting the basic criteria for the position, you also have added skills or experiences. Examples include a well developed network of contacts, direct construction industry experience, and specific technical expertise.
