Contractor Career Opportunities

Contractor Career Outlook

With a thriving economy and low interest rates, individuals will be more likely to buy a new house or re-finance their existing house. Employment of contractors is expected to grow as people choose to make additions or improve the quality of their new or existing homes. This activity will result in a greater need for licensed professionals to provide quality services in a timely manner.   

What is a contractor?

A person who specializes in one or more types of construction and coordinates and manages work performed on residential or commercial projects. Contractors take full responsibility for the complete job and oversee work from start to finish. (Most states require a license to operate a business.)

Contractor Duties:

  • Set up a contract agreement between yourself and the client and define the terms of a project, including the budget, conditions and plans.
  • Supply all of the material, labor equipment (tools, machines, etc.) and services necessary for the construction of the project.
  • Subcontract part of the work, if necessary, to other persons and companies that specialize in specific types of work.
  • Manage the project to determine that quality, timelines and budget stay in line.
