Construction Career Days, April 30, 2014MassDOT is proud each year to support an opportunity for more than 1,200 Massachusetts high school students to explore construction industry professions and get hands-on training at the 12th Annual Massachusetts Construction Career Days held Wednesday and Thursday, April 30th and May 1st at the New England Laborers’ Training Academy in Hopkinton.

This popular event helps meet the needs of both high school students who are making career decisions and the construction industry facing a workforce shortage.  Students learn that whether they are interested in math, carpentry, mechanics or engineering, the construction industry offers challenging, rewarding and well paid professions.

Construction Career Days exhibitors include construction and related companies, MassDOT, vendors, equipment dealers, labor unions, apprentice programs, universities and colleges, and engineers among others.  Each donates time, equipment, and in some cases operators to ensure students a hands-on experience.  During all activities students are supervised, coached and mentored by qualified and experienced industry professionals.

Students have the opportunity to discuss careers, learn about apprenticeship opportunities, compete in engineering and construction challenges; operate backhoes, excavators, jackhammers, pavers, rollers, and other equipment; join in concrete finishing, welding, cutting, burning, and electrical work; build a tool box or lay a brick wall.
