Adolfson & Peterson Join Forces with Rosendin to Showcase Construction Career Opportunities
Adolfson & Peterson (AP) joined forces with Rosendin, the nation’s largest employee-owned electrical contracting company with a regional office in Tempe, to define future career options to East Valley teenagers at Eastmark High School’s Career Fair on April 8.
AP and Rosendin highlighted the construction and contracting industry amongst several professionals in the healthcare, technology and manufacturing fields. Students learned first-hand that each of these fields are frequently incorporated into construction due to technological advancements and industry growth. The local professionals elaborated on day-to-day realities, as well as the required education and work experience needed for distinct roles.
“We are excited to return to Eastmark High School’s career fair with Rosendin and showcase the possibilities within our industry. We look forward to encouraging these rising minds which, in turn, encourages us,” said Amara Boesch, regional marketing director for AP. “We hope to challenge their construction and contracting perception by sharing the diverse projects we work on, along with the varying roles offered at our companies.”
This is Eastmark High School’s third annual career fair in which the focus is to present an opportunity for students to ask career professionals questions to gain a better understanding of what it takes to enter their fields. AP and Rosendin returned for the second year to meet with potential future employees and help navigate them through their interest in the field.
“Eastmark High School is dedicated to preparing our students for their future by exposing them to options they may not have experienced as a part of the education world and the ties their families have,” said Tami Schmal, college and career advisor for Eastmark High School. “Career fairs like this allow students to ask questions about professions they might be interested in to gain a better understanding of the world around them. We are thankful for our business partners for their collaboration and participation in helping achieve this.”
