Colorado Public Works Journal, Fall 2022

Following on from the success of our Women in Construction special issue that we produced in the WINTER edition of CPWJ. This special supplement issue of Careers in Construction is designed to highlight many of the varied roles that serve the construction industry, including trades, apprenticeships, internship opportunities and more. This publication is intended to be a resource for parents, teachers, councilors and high school students looking for alternative career paths to the traditional four year university program. Many of the companies that have participated in putting this issue together have positions available for entry level staff. This is a great way to get started, find out what you like (and what you don’t) learn different areas of the business and move along a paid pathway, whilst adding new skills that will make you more valuable to your next manager. Please refer to page 38 where we list companies and their business details to help you get the conversation started. We hope that with its pass along factor this issue will reach far and wide across the state of Colorado well into 2023. Giving students more scope of what is available to them outside of conventional options. Allowing young talent to learn from seasoned professionals to give them a rewarding and financially secure career.
