With technology moving and changing the construction industry in a very rapid pace right now, it's hard to tell which direction we're going. This means now more than ever we need to learn how to bridge the generation gap between the hardworking Generation X and the tech smart Millennials (the ones we taught to go to school and get a good job so they don't have to work construction). Construction is becoming much more than swinging a hammer and working from the neck down. It's about finding the most user friendly user interface programs out there to help us work smarter not harder. What we need is the perfect combo of experience and hard work that Generation X can supply with technological skills that Millennials own. Combining these two will make the construction industry a well oiled machine.
So I'm calling on all Generation X field hands to learn from what Millennials can teach you, which is: Collaboration, communication and a desire to change the world.
There are so many apps and platforms that can help you succeed, all you have to do is start exploring! The internet is like having the smartest person in the world at your fingertips, so don't waste it. Once you've figured it out you will know your worth! If you can take your knowledge and experience and learn to keep pace with technology you will be able to set your own rate, you will be priceless!
