Help your Students BUILD their Construction Career Today!
The Nevada Contractors Association is dedicated to promoting the construction industry and all the wonderful careers within it. As the industry is booming but is also experiencing a shortage of workers, the NCA has started several initiatives to educate local students, teachers, and parents on what the industry has to offer and the infinite available career opportunities within it! Educators are extremely influential in their students' future careers- we hope that this information will help you understand the construction industry even better than before, and hope that students are encouraged to consider possibilities with helping us build and maintain Las Vegas' one-of-a-kind infrastructure!
We believe there is a fit for everyone within our industry. From the office side of things (estimators, architects, marketing directors etc.) to the hands on work (laborers, carpenters, equipment operators etc.), and everything in-between (construction managers, surveyors, sales representatives etc.). Even if they aren't yet aware of it, the construction industry can offer lucrative careers with a plethora of different responsibilities and types of tasks!
Careers in Construction Short Videos:
In an effort to educate students, teachers, and parents of the different jobs within construction, the NCA has created a collection of short 2-3 minute videos to showcase some of the many jobs within the construction industry! These videos will showcase what a normal day within these different positions entails, the career paths they took, and even some advice to anyone interested in joining our local construction workforce. In addition to these short videos, please see our Careers in Construction magazine, featuring basic local industry information, career path options, outlines of further construction job titles, and resources to help you BUILD a successful career!
