What does 2023 hold for the architecture, engineering, and construction employment sector?
It looks like there will definitely be challenges for employers looking to hire in the new year and plenty of opportunities for job seekers and candidates considering a potential new job.
The thought leaders at Construction Executive summed it up in a recent article:
“More than inflation, more than the supply chain, more than government policies and regulations—labor shortages will be the defining challenge of the construction economy for the foreseeable future. For that reason, it’s the sole focus of Construction Executive’s 2023 Construction Economic Forecast.”
That presents a challenge for AEC companies looking to staff projects and fill open positions. But the good news is there will be plenty of opportunities for skilled tradespeople and white-collar professionals looking for excellent employment opportunities.
So how should active and passive job seekers maximize their job hunting in 2023? Let’s start with some basics.
Set some career goals for 2023, get in the right frame of mind, and start preparing now.
It’s time to set professional goals with a plan to hit them. If you’re considering a career change, whether actively or passively, set some realistic timing goals. It could be as simple as, “I’d like to have a new job offer by June 30, 2023.”
Setting a few smart goals will help put you in the right, positive, can-do-this frame of mind. This is especially important when there may be a considerable amount of AEC positions available.
