Construction Jobs Louisiana

Despite current economic trends, Louisiana is actually experiencing growth in the construction industry. Louisiana is the only state in the country where more people were working in the construction industry this year than in the previous year. In fact, Louisiana has maintained an unemployment rate below the national average since 2006.

Construction jobs are available in Louisiana because of several different factors. Because of the devastating storms in recent years, many cities and towns must rebuild commercial, public and residential sites. State officials are selling general obligation bonds for new capital projects for the first time in three years as part of a $200 million issue for new construction projects. The economic recession has made federal funds available in the form of stimulus packages. Louisiana has received millions of dollars from the federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The Louisiana Department of Transportation has been allocated $430 million in highway funding, and $66 million in mass transit funding. The money for mass transit includes funds for new public transport systems as well as improving the existing ones. This means that construction jobs in a variety of areas are now available.

Private contractors in Louisiana are now looking for workers to fill many positions. These positions include entry level and labor jobs as well as management and administrative jobs. Some jobs require specialized training, certifications and degrees, but many do not. There are also apprenticeships and positions which offer on the job training.

Jobs in the area of construction management include: construction superintendent, construction supervisor, quality control manager, senior estimator and construction manager. In the field of construction engineering, there are jobs for structural engineers, mechanical engineers, and electrical engineers.

There are also jobs available in the area of skilled craft labor. Some of these jobs include: electricians, carpenters, welders, plumbers, landscapers, roofers, maintenance technicians, painters, and restorers.

Jobs in the highway contracting business can be found in the areas of: pavement, concrete, engineer, surveyor, drafter, traffic control flagging, drill operator, heavy equipment operator and many more.

There has never been a more promising outlook for jobs in the construction industry in Louisiana.

We are like many other parents, only hope our kids growing up happily and healthy. Yet, while we look around, we see the environment getting polluted more in each second; we see our planet is heavily loaded with all kinds of trash. We do worry that what the world is going to be when our kids grow up? What ask ourselves: what can we do to keep the world beautiful and clean, so that we can give our children, our grandchildren a good environment to grow up?
