Overseas Contractor Jobs

Overseas Contractor Overview

Contractors are people with experience in a specific trade. Some of the more popular trades include carpentry, electrical work and plumbing. According to statistics, more than one million men and women worked as contractors in 2013. Contractors and construction managers are two highly related fields. Those with the most experience can work as a manager and lead those working under him or her, but contractors usually have much in common with construction workers. Those working Overseas Contractor Jobs help international companies build new apartment buildings, hotels, restaurants, offices and other buildings. Construction workers handle the construction of the building itself, and contractors complete the more intricate detail work needed.

Overseas Contractor Education Requirements

Overseas construction workers and general contractors need the equivalent of a high-school diploma and some experience. While construction workers generally learn trades on the job, contractors must have some experience before taking on a new job. They can learn those skills through a vocational training program, through working with an experienced laborer or while working on construction and building sites. Those with more skills might look into construction engineer overseas jobs or overseas HVAC jobs.

Plumbing contractors make around $51,500 a year in the United States, and some make more than $80,000 a year.
