“Last year, this list was dominated by jobs in the tech sector, with software engineer and developer roles coming out on top," said Indeed SVP Paul D'Arcy. "While these roles are still at the top of our list, it is interesting to see a strong showing by construction jobs that were completely absent last year like pre-construction manager, which jumped straight to the top five.
“Recent reports indicate that over 200,000 construction jobs were added to the labor force last year, and construction spending experienced a spike in real estate and private construction projects," said D'Arcy. "We've also seen an increase in construction job postings overall on Indeed.com. Our data shows that construction firms are looking to hire for all levels of experience as managers and superintendents may be in short supply or hitting retirement age."
