Help Highlight Rewarding Careers in Home Building on Oct. 15

Filed in Student Chapters by on October 11, 2018 0 Comments

As a part of Careers in Construction Month, NAHB is launching a national day of action on social media on Monday, Oct. 15.

Careers in Construction Day 2018 will highlight the positive aspects of working in home building and the related trades. We encourage all NAHB members to share pictures and even short videos on social media showing the more interesting side of construction work.

Post to Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or any other social media channel using the tag #CICDAY2018.

Here are some ideas for effective posts:

  • A video of a trained worker using interesting tools or techniques
  • A picture of a sales manager at a home closing with customers realizing their dream of homeownership
  • A “day in the life” picture or video montage showing a typical day from start to finish
  • Pictures with valued suppliers and subcontractors, and any of the other great people that make this industry so rewarding

And, of course, anything else you can think of.

There is a deep and growing labor shortage in the home building industry, and we all need to pitch in to attract a new generation of builders, carpenters, electricians, plumbers and other skilled trades.

Please encourage your employees and co-workers to snap a quick picture and post it to social media using #CICDAY2018 on Monday, Oct. 15.

To offer new ideas and ask questions, contact NAHB’s Greg Zick at 202-266-8493.
