The survey was conducted on people with ages ranging from 16 to 35 years old. Half of the participants have admitted that they have no inkling regarding many of construction job titles. Experts have expressed their view on the matter and believed that this lack of knowledge could be the very reason why most youngsters are not able to grab opportunities presented by these lucrative careers.
