What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?
Construction Foreman in Richmond:
"..is in the details."
Pay attention to every aspect of the project that you are working on. Master your tasks first and then master the other tasks associated with your scope of work. If you wait around for somebody to tell you what to do then there will always be someone in charge of you. Take some initiative and work at a good pace. Ask questions because you will never know anything if you don't.
Construction Foreman in Oregon City:
I would suggest you take thing one step at a a time so you do not become overwhelmed, or afraid of your new position. You will learn as you go and the superintendent doesn't expect you to be perfect, know everything, have all the answers. He will be watching to see how you pick things up and handle different types of situations.
If you have kept in contact with your old foreman now would be a good time to keep in contact with them so you can look at how they have handled similar situations they have had in the past.
Sink or swim buddy... Good luck.

Keep striving for more I know it isn't much but at the right place it can mean a lot. Don't expect to get rich unless your working for a place with a lot of room for growth.
