There are so many construction jobs in Seattle, that the city can not fill them all and really need skilled construction workers. Reports say that Seattle has seen an increase in construction by over 13 percent which is the highest in the country. Now competition for skilled employees has gotten fierce and most companies are forced to steal other employees or train new ones.

Both options are expensive for construction companies but there doesn't seem to be any solution because the lack of new people in the trade. Kids are going to college instead of learning trades like construction and that is the biggest reason for the shortage they say. Another big reason was all the jobs lost in the last stock market crash, and those people just got out of the industry.

So if you are looking for a career change, construction in Seattle might be the perfect fit.
