About Construction

September 18th, 2017

Construction workers work on all types of construction sites, from the construction of residential and commercial buildings to highway construction, demolition, and tunnel excavation. Their specific tasks may differ widely depending on the type of construction site they are working in. Regardless of the exact industry, this is a physically demanding role and construction workers are required to have the physical strength and stamina to meet the rigorous demands of the job.
There are no minimum educational qualifications necessary to become a construction worker. Having the necessary strength and endurance is the primary criteria for the job. Construction workers must also have excellent balance, hand-eye coordination, and depth perception. It is equally important for them to have knowledge of the safety protocol relevant to the site they are working on.
Prospective employers will want to know why you chose this particular career path and if you know exactly what it entails. At the interview, they are sure to question you about the safety requirements of the job so make sure you brush up on your knowledge so you do not overlook anything. To get a better idea of what types of questions to expect at your interview, go to Mock Questions.
