Careers in the Trades

Builders are experiencing labor shortages not just in NJ but nationally as well. NJBA has launched the On the Job initiative to help members address the labor shortage and help educate the building industry workforce of tomorrow.

Why a Career in the Trades?

“Employment of construction and extraction occupations is projected to grow 10 percent from 2014 to 2024, faster than the average for all occupations, increasing from 6.5 million jobs to 7.2 million jobs.”

Bureau of Labor Statistics  

“There will be 5.5 million jobs in the construction industry by 2021 and not enough craft professionals to fill them.”
