OE Construction has been a part of the Colorado Workforce Development program called CONSTRUCTION CAREERS NOW since August of 2016. The program offers training and education about the construction trades and industry to men and women that are new or have limited knowledge about the industry. There are individuals who have some construction experience, many who are looking at a new career path and the program is open to anyone with an interest in joining the construction industry.
The only requirement is that individuals make a commitment to the training and education program and have an interest in getting ahead in the construction industry. This new construction workforce is serious about beginning a career in construction as they have gone through the Construction Careers Now curriculum at the Central 70 Career Training & Resource Center in Denver, CO.
During the 3rd week of the training program, individuals have an opportunity to meet and discuss work opportunities with a variety of construction companies and professions at a career fair. OE was a part of the latest career fair that was held on November 7, 2018.
What a great group of people OE was able to meet with and talk about careers in construction! At the latest job fair there were General Contractors, Subcontractors for a variety of construction trades, State of Colorado departments looking for new employees and a number of industry professionals. We were inspired and impressed with the individuals that were attending the career fair. OE is passionate about our industry and construction. What a great opportunity to talk about what we do with individuals who want to join our industry.
