Ready to explore a future in construction? Builders are looking for skilled workers.

The median salary for residential construction jobs is $65,000 annually, with more experienced workers earning over $105,000 per year with opportunities to launch their own businesses.

The Building Industry Association of Washington and the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish counties are partnering with Steward of Craft and Seattle Central College on a job fair from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Seattle Central’s Wood Technology Center.

What: Residential construction industry job and information fair

When: 2 to 4 p.m. on Sept. 10, in-person

Where: Seattle Central College’s Wood Technology Center, 2310 S Lane St, Seattle, WA 98144

Residential construction companies from across the region are providing full or part-time employment opportunities to students in the Residential Construction micro pathways program. This is a great opportunity to supplement a student’s classroom and shop education with paid jobsite experience.

In addition, some companies are covering a portion of students’ tuition in exchange for continuing employment for an agreed-upon duration following completion of the program, provided the student worker is in good standing with the company.

BIAW members encourage anyone interested in a career in construction to attend. You don’t have to be enrolled in the program to attend the job fair!

Interested workers should bring a resume and be prepared to discuss their interest in the residential construction field. Register to attend using this online form.
