A successful career in construction can be not only highly lucrative but also incredibly rewarding, according to construction guru and industry mentor Gabriel Btesh. Now at the helm of the family construction business following more than 30 years in the sector, Btesh is also the firm’s chief innovator and has successfully assisted in transforming national standards of living and architectural integrity in the Republic of Panama.
Today’s construction industry, first and foremost, he says, offers enormous earnings potential. “From getting a foot in the door and learning new skills to eventually, perhaps, running a successful business empire, construction is a fast-paced, high-stakes, often incredibly exciting environment,” Btesh reveals.
“It’s no secret,” he continues, “that the job market surrounding property development and construction is today more lucrative than ever before.”
While Btesh is open to admitting that starting out in construction can be difficult and often daunting for many, there are several ways in which to kick-start things. “Get it right, and interested individuals can look forward to a highly rewarding career,” adds the construction guru and industry mentor.
In Panama, much like in the U.S. and elsewhere around the world, the current construction sector job market is competitive. “Offering high salaries and abundant opportunities for those willing to fully commit,” says Btesh, “it’s vital that those who are truly interested in working within construction get off to a good start.”

“For example,” he continues, “it’s important to keep a close eye on what’s going on around you when starting out in the field. Learn as much as possible, and never be afraid to ask questions.”
“The faster you learn, the faster you’ll progress,” adds Btesh, “and remember, everyone in the industry today had to start somewhere.”
Construction expert Btesh goes on to point out that there will always be something new to learn, even following decades in the industry. “In construction,” he reveals, “you never stop learning, and to remember that will afford an individual an edge over those in the field who are less conscientious.”
Panama native Gabriel Btesh also advises mastering a particular craft while simultaneously learning multiple secondary trades. Those who are skilled in multiple trades, he says, can usually command significantly higher rates of pay.
“Reliable, highly skilled construction professionals will forever be in demand,” adds Btesh, wrapping up, “so by investing in the appropriate training and gaining the necessary experience, an individual is furnishing themselves with everything which he or she requires for a successful professional future through which to support themselves and their loved ones.”
