Construction Career Guide for Parents
You want the best for your child—a secure future that offers them growth, financial stability, and an opportunity to be the best version of themselves. For many students, the path to a career includes a traditional, four-year degree. For other students, this path is not a great fit. If you feel like your child would not thrive in a degree program or would be better suited in a more hands-on profession, we encourage you to discuss careers in construction with your child.
Opportunities at Every Level
Ohio’s technical and community colleges offer a variety of programs and all types of curriculum. If a two- or four-year colleges experience is the right fit for your son or daughter, our region offers many different paths for a career in construction, whether your child is interested in construction management, civil engineering, architecture, or business (Curious about debt?
