Go to Job Service North Dakota . Come this Spring, another housing boom is expected in Minot and of course workers are needed. You will see the ads looking for construction workers in the papers and at Job Services. Some contractors are able to continue through winter where some will stop close to Christmas and continue when the ground thaws. I've heard we have a shortage of sheet rockers, electricians, and plumbers are in demand.

I highly recommend you don't move to ND and then look/hope for work. That is unless you have several months worth of living expenses setting in the bank.

I would keep track of the job services listed above and secure a job before moving. Some companies will help you relocate, maybe not monitarily, but by helping find housing before you arrive.

There is a new 6 story Holiday Inn and conference center going up in Williston this spring. The developers are Brutgers Equities, out of St. Cloud, and the Construction company is Miller Construction out of Duluth, MN. You might check with them on what type of workers, wages, etc... they are looking at.
Also, Cascade Homes out of Bozeman, MT is working on some major developments in both Williston and Watford City, ND.
Also...Halliburton has broke ground on their 30acre multi million dollar expansion of their Williston camp.
Williston State College are also breaking ground on their new Science lab, 3 story $9million dollar dorm and 11million dollar Energy and Tech center. So am sure there are lots of construction jobs available this spring-summer.

Dont bother coming to minot for construction work until at least end of march or apirl. There wont be anything here. We are all laid off at the moment for the most part. Season usually runs from mar/april/mayish to oct/nov/decish just depends on the weather.
