Looking back on your first year in the workforce, what do you wish you had known? What advice would have made you a more effective representative of your company?
In many ways, construction, architecture and engineering can only be mastered through hands-on experience. Along with technical growth, new hires need to increase their awareness of basic business principles to fully develop as professionals. That’s why the Builders Exchange offers a unique education series aimed at new hires in member firms. The program is called BX “WIN” – Welcome Industry Newcomers. The six-session course will help young professionals think beyond their job description.
For more information about this unique program, contact Jenna Wojdacz.
For two decades, the BX Student Outreach Program has been working to improve the image of the construction industry while motivating area middle and high school students to consider careers in construction. The BX needs your help as a speaker for the 2017/18 school year.
The program is presented by BX members - professionals in careers ranging from skilled trades, to construction management, to architecture. The goal is to interest young people, boys and girls, in jobs they may never have previously considered. More than 89,000 central Ohio students have been reached since the Outreach Program was initiated in 1993.
The Exchange is seeking volunteers to serve as Outreach speakers. This opportunity will allow you to share the responsibility of inspiring tomorrow’s workforce. Presentations occur during the school day and you volunteer when it fits your schedule - whether it’s once a year or several times a month. After a brief training session, speakers visit middle and high school classrooms in teams of two and present the structured 35-minute program.
Become a volunteer for the BX Student Outreach Program today. For more information, contact Pam Austin.
