Carpenters participating in "Construction Career Days"
Posted by on

The New England Regional Council of Carpenters is one of many organizations and companies participating in "Construction Career Days." The program, which has been taking place in states around the country for ten years, introduces high school students to the many career opportunities available in the industry.

Held at the Laborers Training Center in Hopkinton, the event in Massachusetts generally attracts more than a thousand students. This year's event, expected to draw more than 1,800 is running from May 5-7 from 8am to 5pm.

The event allows students to see--and in some cases experience--careers from building trades, to engineering to environmental fields. The Carpenters area, which is drawing crowds, allows students to build their own toolboxes.
