Adolfson & Peterson and Rosendin Unite to Inspire Queen Creek High School Students at Career Fair
On April 1, Rosendin, the nation’s largest employee-owned electrical contracting company with a regional office in Tempe, teamed up with Adolfson & Peterson Construction (AP) to co-host a booth at the Queen Creek High School Career Fair 2022. Rosendin and AP shared industry, job opening and salary range opportunities to approximately 2,200 students.
Queen Creek High School’s Career Fair hosted numerous companies in 16 different fields including agriculture, education, finance and marketing to inspire students to investigate career possibilities. Rosendin and AP spoke to potential future employees, showcasing various careers in electrical contracting, construction and general contracting.
“We were proud to return to Queen Creek High School’s Career Fair and show the students what AP and Rosendin can offer for their future,” said Amara Boesch, regional marketing director for AP. “Encouraging these programs and students will lift up their future and our industry.”
Queen Creek High School’s annual career fair is an opportunity for students to familiarize themselves with jobs and career fields they may have previously been unaware of. With the help of over 25 local businesses, this is a one-stop event featuring a variety of careers, fields and paths for students to explore.
“Community professionals generously volunteer their time, hosting booths to highlight their business. Students can engage, ask questions, learn about the day-to-day duties of a job and, most importantly, they can find out what certification or schooling would be required in a specific role,” said Cara Price, college and career advisor for Queen Creek High School. “We are grateful to the AP team for making the time again this year to come to Queen Creek High School and share their career experiences and stories.”
AP has maintained an office in Arizona for more than 30 years. Since then, AP Southwest has won, started and completed industrial, health care and K-12 education projects for clients such as Honeywell, Reunion Rehabilitation Hospitals, United Surgical Partners Inc., Candeo Schools, Kyrene School District No.28 and the Leona Group.
