NORTH BILLERICA — The construction industry has changed immensely over the past couple decades, but its reputation has, so far, lagged behind. Outdated impressions of hard labor, back-breaking work and physical stress still linger and, though there are aspects of the industry that still involve demanding work, many people — including women — don’t realize that a career in construction can look very much like a career in technology or professional services, according to a press release from Interstate Electrical Services, an electrical contractor in North Billerica.

In honor of Women in Construction Month, Interstate Electrical Services is working to change these preconceived notions, in part, by acknowledging the talented women who contribute to making the company what it is today — the largest electrical services merit shop in New England.

Here is a snapshot of Allisyn Mowrey, fourth year electrical apprentice from Royalston:

Mowrey said she always knew she wanted to work with her hands, and not at a desk. “I love the outdoors and don’t mind working in more open construction sites,” Mowrey said. “I’ve been working toward my goal of becoming a licensed electrician for the past three years. I’d say the best advice I can give to anyone considering a career as a licensed electrician is this: Just do it! It is four years of hard but rewarding work, and once you gain the experience and skills to pass the license exam, you have that for the rest of your life.”

Interstate is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to making the construction industry more diverse. To learn more , visit www.iesc1.com.
