What is the best way to get a job in construction? My fiance has worked at the same job for five years as a manager in grocery. He is in the airforce as a reserve. He wants to learn a trade or skill that is in high demand and of course wants to make more money. He wants to work hard and make good money. How do you get your foot in the door at construction companies (any type) so you can start to learn trades and skills?
