Most people do not know how to market themselves effectively for great jobs. I have helped over 100 "unqualified" people in the past 6+ years acquire great jobs in 2-4 weeks. slmathews99@gmail.com

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for your question. I definitely understand your frustrations. Have you checked out Google's job board? I see from your ACP AdvisorNet profile that you are in Georgia, so I have pulled up the Google Job board for construction jobs in Georgia.

(https://www.google.com/search?ei=5eMUXeeeIufv5gKs-7w4&q=construction+jobs+in+GA&oq=construction+jobs+in+GA&gs_l=psy-ab.3..0l10.123708.127566..127882...0.0..0.84.1330.23......0....1..gws-wiz.......0i71j0i131j0i67.bUIm4nzBrU4&ibp=htl;jobs&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwilq42DgYrjAhXQxFkKHamNAB0QiYsCKAF6BAgJEBA#fpstate=tldetail&htidocid=IGL4_0h4UmAQi13xAAAAAA%3D%3D&htivrt=jobs)

As with most industries, certifications may also help with marketability. I did a quick search for good certifications to have in the field of construction (https://www.business.com/articles/construction-industry-certification-guide/).

We also have a handful of Advisors on the site that have background in Manufacturing & Construction. I would highly recommend reaching out to as many Advisors as you can to get additional perspectives too. (https://acp-advisornet.org/community/advisors)

I hope this helps Matthew. Thank you for your service.

Best,
Taylor
