Construction Sales & Marketing Jobs: Employment Prospects

Propects for the employment of construction sales & marketing professionals should fair as well as most areas in building and construction. This includes building materials supply representatives, contractor reps (such as those for programs at big box centers) and territory and regional managers & directors. This trend is likely to continue through the year 2013 and into the foreseeable 2014, depending on a number of factors and influences.

Contrary to the past couple of years, salespersons and marketers that are involved in the residential and specialty-trade sectors should probably have opportunities available, given the recent signs of upturn in the new housing market. However, any presently proposed tariffs on import products could adversely affect select products used in building and construction processes.

Sales persons involved with commercial construction markets will likely experience lesser opportunities. While government related projects, in the plan stage and even after groundbreaking, are due to be highly dependent on funding and possibly subject to the long-handled axe. Industry-specific factors, like civil/environmental regulations, may play a role in the success of companies - for example, for products like precast concrete. Those putting forth green or otherwise environmentally compatible products will benefit and be more likely to receive backing. Self-generating and renewable energy related, such as high efficiency solar panels are expected to progress on a successful tract as payback periods continue to shorten.
Other possible areas of growing potential for sales and marketing are natural product reclamation - in view of the dwindling inventories, for example, lumber & timber related products. Also, products and services that exhibit clear differential advantages over competitors during a time of increasing competition. As well as memorable product service and support levels, with products having adequate, reliable and consistent channels of supply.
