Building Trades Employer Day
Career Services hosted the first annual Building Trades Employer Day on Tuesday, May 13th at the Post Road campus. The focus of the event was specifically for the Building Construction, Refrigeration/AC Heating & Gas, Plumbing/Heating & Gas, Construction Management and Electrical Technologies.
Past graduates and currently enrolled students were able to speak with managers and recruiters about potential full-time and part-time opportunities. They, along with the instructors, were able to make connections and to learn about companies that they may not have thought about as a job prospect. There were 16 companies in attendance and most were following up with the students and grads that submitted resumes or filled out an application. We are already looking forward to planning next year’s event
