Our industry faces shortages in skilled professionals at all levels and for many these shortages have reached a dire point. Now is the time to change the image of the industry as a viable career choice.
In 2016and 2017, CAGC helped sponsor career day events in both NC & SC which hosted thousands of high school students who were exposed to a variety of construction craft professions, given an opportunity to experience hands on activities and were provided with information about the training needed to become a skilled crafts person.
Build Your Career will be a full-time concentrated effort to provide education related to career opportunities in the Construction industry.
- Initially we will recruit and train ambassadors as our “boots on the ground” representatives, spreading the word about viable, rewarding careers in our industry.
- Concurrently, Build Your Career is a long-term funding campaign to support these efforts with expenses related to education materials, social media posts, videos, and other communications.
Solving this issue is not one we can presume others will accomplish for us; a win-win includes CAGC continuing our collaborative effort with our allied industry partners on this important issue.
