Utah Construction and Home Improvement AssociationsEmployment in all areas of the construction and home remodeling industries throughout Utah was at its peak in 2007 and 2008 before being hit hard during the recession. According to data compiled by the Utah Department of Workforce Services, the construction and home improvement industries are now returning to their normal levels with a steady increase in demand. This is positive news for individuals already working in specialty services including plumbers, electricians, carpenters, builders, and other skilled trades. In 2013, the concern turned to finding enough skilled and trained individuals to fill the positions that had opened up throughout the state.

While there are trade schools throughout Utah that offer people the opportunity to earn the knowledge and skills required to fill the various construction and home improvement positions available; companies are giving first consideration to individuals that have earned a degree from an accredited 4 year college or university. It is believed that these educational facilities provide their students with the opportunity to gain more hands on experience prior to entering the workforce. This experience can also be gained by working in apprentice positions.
