By Freddie Rohner, iHire

After adding 167,377 construction jobs in January, iHireConstruction saw the strong start to 2019 continue with 126,109 jobs added in February. The demand for roofers dropped considerably and project/construction managers took over the top spot on our list of popular titles with 13,335 opportunities added in February followed by electricians (11,197 openings), millwrights/mechanics (10,204 openings), carpenters (9,098 openings), and welders/fabricators (8,540 openings).

February saw a slight uptick in the number of active construction job seekers from 33% to 35%, which could help explain the continuing decrease in average job ad age from 25 days in January to 24 days in February.
