High School Students to Attend Construction Career Day
Youth are vital to the construction industry. Today’s high school students represent the pool of workers from which the construction industry will recruit its future work force. Northside Independent School District (NISD) understands this and is hosting its first annual Construction Career Day next week on March 20.
The event will be held at Warren High School’s Construction Careers Academy in San Antonio, Texas. Teachers from NISD high schools have selected 350 students who have shown interest in pursuing careers in construction. The students will be introduced to many of the rewarding and diverse careers in the industry, and will have the opportunity to speak with potential employers about what working in the industry is like and how it could impact their career paths and futures. Students will visit booths representing various professions in construction, watch trade demonstrations, and see how different types of equipment are used.
Companies who participate and sponsor the event will be able to access potential new hires, and students will be offered career options that they otherwise may not have been aware of.
