As a current student I’ve been thinking a lot about my future career goals. As much as I’ve considered a career with an asset management company or a securities firm with a specialization in #mining , #energy and utilities, I’m reluctant to give up on having a career in construction. •••••• There’s always been some universal energy that’s pulled me to the #construction and mining industries. Most people will look at industry related pictures and say “big whoop, it’s just #dirt and #heavyequipment , who cares. You can never have a viable career doing that”. To me I think about all of the opportunities there are to be creative. To be challenged everyday. To see the #earth in a different way (literally and figuratively). I see opportunities not just on site “playing in the dirt”, but at the office growing and expanding the business. Most importantly, no matter how big, how long or how demanding a #project is, construction will always require an effective team that’s creative, works well together, enthusiastic, inquisitive and ambitious. Make sure your site and office employees posses those traits and I guarantee you that your business will thrive! •••••• If you would be willing to mentor me and help me build a career in construction and/mining send me a #dm or send me an email! Check my bio, for contract info! •••••• #mgicorp #constructinghistory #earthmoving #transportation #rock #truck #team #Tuesday #igdaily #picoftheday #blog #sightofcan #career #choices #picture #brand #partner #blueskies

Cat 365BL. Fun fact, I ran one of these back when I was a placer miner in the Yukon. We had two of them, one C series and one B, with the B series repowered to a C15 Acert motor. There was nothing better than a cool morning with the sound of a C15 turbos whistling loud in the valley while flinging earth and dreaming of big gold.
—This week’s assignment is to live your life without any excuses. Next time you find yourself resorting to favourable self-justification, be reminded that lying to yourself is more dangerous than lying to anyone else. #demolitiondaily #inspire #demolition #abatement #kubutaconstruction #constructor #mondaymotivation #letsgetit #heavyequipment #demolish #oakville #company #constructionsite #construction #life #vscocam #excavator #kubotassv #operator #demolitioncontractor #demolitionnews #look #mgi #mood #heavyequipmentlife #ssv75 #constructinghistory #mgicorp
One of the reasons why I love the #Toronto -based multi-service #construction company, MGI Construction Corporation, is because they are one of the only companies in the industry successfully using social media to their advantage. From being on site taking #pictures regularly, writing #creative captions for their posts, hosting a milestone contest (which I’m sure they will be having more in the future), making sure they push content out every day of the week and more importantly creating awesome videos such as this one! •••••• MGI Construction Corporation is a company that continues to captivate and engage its audience! If you are reading this and not already following MGI Construction, click here... @mgicorp ! DONT be afraid to message them either because I sure wasn’t. And who knows where I would’ve taken this page if I hadn’t messaged MGI Corp. months ago. The media manager(s) consistently give me constructive feedback and always handle our interactions professionally! I can only imagine that when it comes time to visit their #sites , the crew will follow suit. I can honestly say that #mgicorp is living up to their motto #constructinghistory ! And they will forever be a true #sightofcan . Let MGI be an example for the rest of the construction industry! •••••• Do you want to have an #appreciation #post like this one day for your company?? Send me a #dm or email with the subject line “WeBuildCAN” and we can get to work! Doesn’t matter if you’re in #mining , construction, #farming or #nature ! Just be #Canadian and we’re good to go! •••••• #video #igdaily #blog #dirt #edit #film #entrepreneur #build #canada #company #creators #leader #leaderscreateleaders #sunday #funday .
How about a birds eye view of this sewer line installation??? • • • Could you imagine a world without sewer lines? I just did and it would be messy and dirty. Make sure you follow MGI Construction Corporation and @sightof_can for more #pictures ! • • • New segments coming soon!

We believe work-life balance is easy to achieve when you wake up every morning doing something you love. It’s a lifestyle with no manufactured expectations—it just flows. Practice persistence, stay hungry, master your craft, work like hell, laugh, do you, and take pride in your ability to inspire the next. #Construction #SkilledTrades #Lifestyle #Careers #NextGeneration #PersonalDevelopment #Inspiration #Earthworks #ConstructionWorker #HeavyCivil #Asbestos #HeavyEquipmentOperator #CivilConstruction #Remediation #Excavation #Demolition #Contractors #ConstructionDaily #Abatement #HeavyEquipment #Consistency #ProjectManagement #CivilEngineering #InspireTheNext #MGI #ConstructingHistory #mgicorp
Not doing a #transportation #tuesday today! Instead I’m throwing the change up on you guys to give you a little #trivia !

This is probably the closest I’ve been to an excavator in operation. The only thing between it and I was the darn glass. •••••• Seeing more and more MGI #construction #pictures is making me really like the @hitachicma excavators, I may just have to turn on my CAT excavators if this keeps up! •••••• Most 21 year old guys enjoy looking at girls and cars. Yes, yes I’ll admit I do that too... but I’d very much prefer to look at a construction site 😂😂 all the #dirt being moved, excavated and backfilled and all of the machinery in action 🤙🏽 ••••••• Follow @sightof_canada for more pictures and videos!! New segments coming soon!!! ••••••• I enjoy construction sites! And I enjoy #photography so if you’re a construction or construction materials company DM me!!! I’d love to take a tour of your site! • • • • #sightofcan #mgicorp #constructinghistory #picoftheday #igdaily #saturday #earth #rock #orange #student
So I’ve heard that there’s a huge shortage of skilled workers and because of it, industries such as #construction are taking a hit •••••• Solution solved... AUTONOMY! One of the up and coming trends in the construction industry. I’ve read articles about excavators completing projects in the US, I’ve seen a video where a machine acted as brick layer! I’ve even seen some of my mentors visit Caterpillar’s Autonomous #heavyequipment tour sites. •••••• This job is literally built for me!! •••••• At the #site you can build your #trench while someone else is having fun controlling the roller to make sure that #dirt is nice and smooth. •••••• #sightofcan #mgicorp #constructinghistory #skilledtrades #school #remote #control #game #trades #worker #new #generation #millennial • • • More pictures coming soon! Follow @sightof_canada and turn on post motivations!
WRECK IT WEDNESDAY!!! •••••• I may be a #Finance #student with plans to strike it #rich on King Street, but i still dream to get into the hot seat of one of these bad boys 🤙🏽🇨🇦 •••••• That’s how I know that the kid in me will never ever leave! •••••• As much as I look up to #investment gurus such as Warren Buffet, Ray Dalio, and Timothy Sykes, I admire the #men and #women that get to operate #heavyequipment on a daily basis! They’re truly living the #Construction dream! •••••• Treat these operators with just as much respect as you would treat a CEO. Operators are a dime-a-dozen and have literally made the construction companies who they are today! •••••• No clue if I’m confused about my career path, or just passionate about construction and #mining ! Who knows, maybe someday I’ll own a part of multiple mining and construction companies! 😜 • • • • #constructinghistory #igdaily #photography #photographer #mgicorp #wednesday #outdoors #sightofcan #bricks #demo #dirt #wreckage

WRECK IT WEDNESDAY!!! • • Do you see what I see? • I spy with my two eyes... 1 MGI #water #truck 1 MGI water tank 4 #cat excavators 1 Volvo long arm excavator 2 MGI storage containers And 2 MGI #waste bins. Oh and you can’t forget about all that wreckage!! ••••• PLAY the #game and relive your childhood! • • A lot of my friends ask me why I run this page and load it with #construction #pictures . And why I was exited to partner up with MGI Construction Corp, who by the way is #constructinghistory everyday, I answer them all the time with, “seeing these pictures brings back childhood memories, it really brings out the kid in me”. I can only imagine how I’ll be after stepping one foot on a live construction site with all of my proper PPE gear 😬. ••••• Here’s to many more pictures and hopefully a new opportunity to bringing out the kid in me! ••••• #sightofcan #canada #instagood #concrete #heavyequiment #wednesday #igdaily #picoftheday #bluesky #blog #photography #outdoors #nature #photographer
Nothing excites me more than seeing a team come together to complete a project! Whether it be a class project, pulling someone out of a burning building, or #constructinghistory . •••• In honour of #tuesday id like to bring to you an awesome sight of #teamwork ! There’s lots going on in this #picture ...you have your #orange hitachi ZX 350 LC and CAT 352 F excavators digging out some nice #dirt while loading up 2 CAT 730 C #rock #trucks respectively. Oh and you can’t forget about MGIs John Deere crawler tractor operator pushing some brown #earth and snapping this awesome shot! •••• Yup, it’s a true #construction #sightofcan and I’m super proud to be a company partner! •••• #mgicorp #canada #photography #snapshot #instagood #instagram #heavyequipment #igdaily #picoftheday #blog

Excavators and rock trucks are two of the most commonly used Earth Moving machinery. What is Earth Moving you ask? Well it’s simple, it’s literally in the term “Earth Moving”. Earth Moving is essentially the process of excavating and moving dirt and soil. • • • FOLLOW @sightof_canada for more #pictures • • • #mgicorp #constructinghistory #construction #dirt #rock #moving #photographer #photography #heavyequipment #igdaily #sightofcan #beautiful #truck #earth #moving #nation #canada #orange #yellow #civilengineering #engineering #business #student

It’s #mighty #machine #monday !! • • • The John Deere 750 J crawler tractor has a 6 cylinder turbocharged, diesel engine that produces up to 168 horsepower and is equipped with a hydrostatic drivetrain.

Live today at @humbleartsfoundation. Posted with thanks to Bean Gilsdorf for speaking with me about her work. Link in the bio. . . “For this show, I decided to look closely at the last nine First Ladies, and investigate the way that political imagery frames who these people are supposed to be. A First Lady is a celebrity in a very tightly controlled space. There are so many expectations incumbent upon her relationship to her spouse, her family, her country, and to her own agency. Historically, First Ladies have expressed their contingent power through fashion choices, state dinners, and soft diplomacy. We're never sure how influential they are, or if they affect policy decisions, or if they are to be held responsible for them. Right now, there are questions about how much Melania Trump knows, how much she cares, how much she participates. These women are fascinating, as are the images of them. We're trying so hard to figure out who they are from images that are often carefully crafted.” . . . #beangilsdorf #statedinner #anytimedepartment #softpower #firstladies #constructinghistory #sourcedimages #propoganda #visualdiscourse #humbleartsfoundation #artwriter
Why do I post #pictures of construction #sites ? Why do I incur the expense to visit nature parks or snap pictures from the outskirts of closed construction sites? Why will I choose to use my free time to visit construction sites (paid or not)? • • It’s not just to gain “industry experience” so that I can one day work with a #construction company. It’s because of the opportunity for growth and learning. In today’s generation we are so fortunate enough to learn and do anything we ever wanted to given the right determination and resources. • Over the past year or so running this page, I’ve learned a good deal amount construction, #mining , #architecture , environmental services, #heavyequipment and a little bit of #engineering . I’ve been forced to use this thing called GOOGLE to search up basic information about certain construction services and terms. I’ve been corrected on many different things regarding my posts but I’m super grateful, because I believe you don’t just learn from the internet or books or classrooms! You can learn a hell of a lot from experienced professionals too! • • Which is why, in addition to working my way through my finance degree, I wish to get on as many sites as possible! I wish to get on as many of YOUR sites as possible! Best thing yet, I’ll step on that site for absolutely NO COST AT ALL!! Just pay me with your mentorship! So, if you would be willing to be an on-site mentor to me, FOLLOW @sightof_canada and #sightofcan , and send me a DM or email with the subject “On-site Mentorship”. • • • #photography #picoftheday #picture #mgicorp #constructinghistory #dirt #rock #amateur #canada #student #mentor #dig #thursday #igdaily #blogger #photoshoot #photographer #free #service #no #cost
