WIC Week Spotlight: Marissa Poth-Miller

What led you to a career in construction?

What do you love most about your job?

“The best part of my job is having the ability to learn something new from the trades on site and having one of the best work environments that strives on self-improvement.”

 

What is the most challenging aspect of your job?

“Although I have only been in my position for less than one year, I would stay the most challenging aspect right now is growing the confidence in knowing that I gave the best response/solution to a situation. Luckily, my project managers are constantly giving me advice, learning opportunities, and help me improve my skills every day.”

 

What advice would you give the other women looking to begin or advance their career in the construction industry?

“The best advice I could give is to always listen to the constructive criticism since self-improvement can only be made if you know where those opportunities are.”
