Date Time

The CNY Home and Garden Show will host a Residential Construction Job Fair in the Center of Progress building at the NYS Fairgrounds on Friday, March 16, 2018. The job fair takes place 9:30-11:30 a.m.

With demand for skilled tradespeople on the rise, there’s no better time than now to look at jobs in residential construction, say event organizers.

Job fair attendees will have the opportunity to network with dozens of companies looking to hire in construction fields including masonry, HVAC, carpentry and electrical trades. These fields have all experienced an increased demand for skilled individuals, proving that a college degree isn’t the only road to success.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Employment Statistics Survey data and analysis by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), the 2015 median annual wage of most positions in the residential building sector was $39,500 – 10 percent above the U.S. median annual wage of $35,540.  The median average annual salary in New York State for most residential construction jobs is $55,720.

Admission to the job fair is free. Attendees of the job fair receive a free ticket to the CNY Home and Garden Show. The Building Tomorrow’s Workforce Job Fair is presented by the Home Builders & Remodelers of Central New York, The CNY Home and Garden Show and The Parade of Homes.
