Must for high school students!

Construction management careers are under rated. I find listening to other professional’s in the AEC industry up lifting. I am a decade long project manager that started out in the field as a laborer. If I would have known of this podcast I could have moved up the ladder much faster. It took a while to actually see that construction has a “real” management level that makes an impact on a project/job. I advise anyone in high school, college, or anyone that is interested in gaining a fruitful, challenging, honorable, and respected career to listen carefully. One day you could earn a six figure wage and not tote a worthless liberal arts degree and the debt that comes with it! If, you put in the footwork and open your ears... just a thought.
