Construction Manager Jobs

Construction Manager Overview

Construction Managers plan and coordinate the construction of projects from their inception to their completion. They are responsible for budgeting and supervising the projects as well. Although many Construction Managers work at an office, most of them also do field work and have to make important decisions concerning the projects they are responsible for overseeing. For particularly large projects, several Construction Managers may supervise different aspects of the project and have to coordinate all their efforts together toward a common goal.

Construction Manager Education Requirements

A Construction Manager usually has experience as a self-employed General Contractor. However, candidates can also qualify with a high school diploma and several years of relevant work experience. Some two-year technical programs offer construction management or construction technology programs that can prepare Construction Managers for smaller projects. Those who want to be Construction Managers for larger projects generally must have a bachelor's degree in construction management, construction science, engineering or architecture. More employers are beginning to put a higher emphasis on bachelor's degrees for Construction Managers, so those with higher levels of education will have better job prospects in the field.

Construction Manager Job Market

The job market for Construction Managers is expected to grow 16 percent, which is faster than the average of all occupations, from 2012 to 2022. The demand for Construction Managers will directly correlate to the number of construction projects being completed; in regions where new structures are being built, more jobs will open for qualified candidates.

Construction Manager Salary

The median salary for Construction Managers is $82,790. The top 10 percent of earners could expect an income as high as $144,520. The most profitable industries for Construction Managers are generally those who work for computer systems design services, insurance carriers, scientific research and development services, lumber and other construction materials wholesalers, and oil and gas extraction companies. However, most Construction Managers work in residential and nonresidential construction sectors.
