"Showing enthusiasm for the role and the company goes a long way in making a lasting impression," he affirms. From the initial application to the final interview, candidates must convey their passion for the industry and their dedication to delivering results.

In an industry where talent acquisition is highly competitive, Harris's tips serve as a beacon of guidance for aspiring construction professionals.
