Recently I was having a conversation with a friend of mine who happens to be in senior management at a local site work company. Our conversation was about how in spite of COVID, their company’s future was shaping up to be very, very busy, and do I know any sharp Project Managers, Estimators, or even Assistants that I could refer his way?
I told him that folks with talent were difficult to come by these days and asked what makes his company so special, besides the fact that they have so much work.
“Well, first of all”, he said, “I love working here! It’s a great atmosphere, they’ll pay six-figures for the right managers, and I can tell you we do some of the coolest dirt projects in WNY.” (see the pictures below)
He told me a story about how years ago (before he found his current employer) he had interviewed with National Fuel. They asked him what he liked about his job in construction. The reply he gave was about the hardwood floors he used to install and how much pride the finished product gave him. That it was beautiful—a work of art. The utility reminded him that none of his work would be seen when he was done. My friend knew that he wanted to do interesting work and looking back, is very happy he chose as he did.
What could be better than making a lot of money, working in a comfortable environment, all the while doing beautiful, interesting projects—for the most part, you’ll want to frame them and hang them on your office wall?
So the call is for Managers or Estimators, either bored or unhappy who are ready to make a move. Alternatively, we’d absolutely look at an Assistant or Administrator from a different part of construction. We certainly don’t mind teaching them about dirt!
