Career Pathway Presentations: Engineering and Construction Management

Posted November 19th, 2018

College and Career Ready Education does not only occur within the classrooms here at St. Augustine Prep. Our College Guidance department has worked to diligently orchestrate a series of Career Pathway Presentations which introduces our students an array of professionals from a number of industries. By exposing students to an in-depth look of multiple career paths, St. Augustine Prep is aiding in planning our students’ educational future and exploring that future before they select a college major.

Most recently, professionals from the construction management industry were brought in to educate our students on the growing career field. Representatives from General Building Contractors Association (GBCA), Drexel University, Jefferson University, INTECH Construction, and Gilbane Building Company were present and touched on certain points, such as the excellent employment opportunities that are expected to continue throughout the next decade, due to the increasing demand for highly qualified and educated personnel.

Earlier in the year, the Atlantic County Utilities Authority stopped by to speak with students who have an interest in Environmental Science. Students in attendance were invited to participate in a Junior Explorer Program which the ACUA hosts.

Be on the lookout for The 2019 Job Shadow Program as well as our next Career Pathway Presentation which looks to delve into the world of Marketing, Communications and Business Management.
