Who would support a Construction Superintendent Alliance providing and protecting the "few" rights of Superintendents?
- Definition of Job Scope/Responsibilities
- Fair employment packages
- Improvement of work conditions
- Controlling the abusive work hours
- Does a 25m dollar project, scheduled and completed in 12 months, justify a 0.3% "fee" to field manage?

Sounds like a Superintendant's union.

Does anyone have feedback for working LOGCAP positions in Afghanistan? Journeyman carpenter base pay is low - around $33,000 but overtime and hazard pay boosts that to $106,000 plus signing and completion bonus. The grind is 7/12's for 90 days, then two weeks off. One year committment. I am 57 years old, with a carpentry background, BS degree in Construction Management, and a CA state contractors license. I have over 25 years experinece running commercial work, but I been out of work for 24 months and have applied for literally hundreds of jobs which netted four interviews and three job positions, all of which fell through. This seems the only opportunity out there. Once in country, can you move up the ranks to do what your do best?

I still can't believe I'm out of work 14 months , I have applied / sent out resumes to HUNDREDS of potential employers, netted ONE interview.
I have been in construction management all my life, what can i do ?

Many of us are experiencing the same dilemma. Fiftyish, years of experience, hundreds of resumes' sent, few if any interviews. Finding whatever work locally is about as good as it gets here in the lower midwest. Overseas jobs look like the only option for long term. But even with two recent mid-east deployments under my belt,military, interviews are still difficult to inpossible.
Never, did any of us envision such a bleak employment future at this point of our lives. Overseas seems the only opportunity but it ain't easy. Been there, dun dat. But if compensation is reasonable, 150+K, why not.
