William has decades of experience working in construction. He started out as a carpenter and worked his way up to become a construction superintendent. What he's learned along the way is how all the different trades work together to complete a project. His advice if you want to go into construction: get your high school diploma and take math classes. Basic math skills are necessary and are used everyday to figure out how things fit together.
