S.C. Department of Employment and Workforce Releases Eighth Round of Lifeboat Jobs

Thursday, October 15th, 2020

This week’s Lifeboat Jobs are in the Construction Industry. For a brief recap, our Labor Market Information (LMI) team captured and evaluated more than 45,000, non-seasonally adjusted*, job postings in South Carolina to identity the most available jobs in South Carolina.

“The construction industry brings our Lifeboat Jobs segment to a close. We do hope South Carolinians have found this resource to be helpful as they consider new employment opportunities as a bridge to financial stability during this pandemic. Someone who is hardworking can move from Laborer, to Foreman, to Construction Manager: if they have the capacity and willingness to learn new skills. We anticipate these Lifeboat Job Occupations within the Construction Industry Sector will grow 11% to 16% over the next decade. Some of the skilled trade workforce opportunities do require additional certifications or on-the job training, but if you enjoy using your hands to create, build, fix, or improve then this is the industry to consider,” states Labor Market Information/Business Intelligence Division Director, Brian Nottingham.
