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

 

Fred Perrin, Recruiting Manager for Dejana Truck and Utility Equipment Company, met with sixth quarter Automotive students on May 13th  at the Access Road Campus.  Dejana has 6 facilities in the northeast and is currently recruiting for the Smithfield, RI location.    Mr. Perrin, who works out of the New York office, spoke with the upcoming grads about career opportunities at Dejana.

 

Clean Care of New England visited the campus on March 18,  to tour Construction Management Technology.  Clean Care, located in RI, visited the campus to learn about the Construction Management program and how grads could  work in the restoration and remediation field as project managers.
