Construction Management student – Advice from you pros would be much appreciated!

Hello friends! I’m about to graduate from community college with my associates in arts, and transfer over to university to complete my bachelors degree in construction management by 2021.

I currently work full time for a dental business consulting firm as an account/project manager, and volunteer with Habitat for Humanity as a team leader in training each weekend doing carpentry, drywall, finish work, landscaping, and other general construction labor.

I am currently looking for jobs and internships in the construction management field, but I believe the fact that I have not yet transferred over to the university to begin my Junior year is a barrier to a construction management internships at this time, as it seems to be a requirement for most to all positions of this nature. With the class schedule required at state university, I would not be able to stay in my current position as a business consultant while still attending school full time, as I have been able to with night classes at community college. While I could hypothetically wait to apply until I have started at University in the fall, I am 21 and support myself financially, so I don’t can not afford to have a gap in employment.

With this, I wanted to see if any of you have suggestions as to what may be a position (labor or clerical) in the construction field that does not require a degree, and would be a step/couple steps-down so to speak from a construction/project management position? Or would it be best to apply for a general labor position?

Thank you so much in advance for your time and advice!
