AT A GLANCE
Tilesetters use ceramic, marble, and quarry tile to cover interior and exterior walls, ceilings and floors, and to make decorative mosaics. You may cut or shape the tile yourself or use prefabricated tile sections for quick installation.
Work environments for construction careers can be located outdoors or indoors or both. Work hours may vary as well. Some positions are seasonal while others are all year round, but part-time.
