About the Event
The Construction Career Day is an annual event sponsored by a coalition of Reno Construction Industry Associations, trades, and contracting companies. Shortages in skilled labor and the supply chain have made it difficult for the construction industry to recover since COVID-19. This is on top of an ongoing stigma about jobs in the construction industry. Construction Career Day aims to dispel those myths and serves as an opportunity to recruit the next generation of the workforce. Whether one has a high school diploma or a master’s degree, a career in construction offers a viable and lucrative career. (Source)
Who’s Invited To Attend?
More than 1,800 Northern Nevada high school students, educators, and counselors are expected to attend and interact with the more than 40 industry experts about opportunities for careers in construction. (Source)
