Pre-employment Testing & Assessment Evaluation Questions

What are the right steps in choosing a right carrier?

Choosing a construction career path is never an easy task. Most people change construction careers approximately seven times in their lifetime, so there is a lot of evaluation and re-evaluation that needs to be done periodically. You always want to make informed choices based on a good understanding of yourself as well as what is available to you. Research needs to be done on the different occupations available by looking at job descriptions, talking to construction mentors, people within your network, as well as other professionals in the field. You'll need to decide on your priorities and the lifestyle you want to choose the work that fits your construction personal needs as well as your skills and interests. The first step is to know yourself. Answer these two questions: What do you do well? What do you enjoy doing? This will help you identify your strengths.
