If the last 3 months are anything to go by, construction activity and subsequently construction hiring is booming. In the last 3 months of 2015 there were more construction workers hired than any other time since 2006, according to an article on MarketWatch.com.

As home building activity grew at the end of last year, this gave a boost to employment in the sector. The Department of Labor added that December capped the strongest 3 month period for job gains in construction since 2006, with employers adding 45,000 workers to the sector.

Economists have predicted commercial construction is also likely to increase which will result in even higher hiring rates as this type of construction can be more labor intensive.
