Discovering Building Materials Distribution at the Saginaw Career Complex
11/5/19 - Kyler and Paul from our Saginaw branch had the opportunity to speak to high school students in the Saginaw Career Complex Construction Program about jobs in the construction industry. We appreciate the opportunity to reinforce what these students are learning and give them some real-life perspective about careers in construction.
One thing that they don't always realize is that installation isn't the only career path in our industry. Kyler says, "You can make a really good living in the trades. But it's not just the guy with the hammer... there's opportunities in sales, design, delivery, installation... the business aspects. You can take it in a lot of directions. It's exciting to talk to these kids and open their eyes to the possibilities."
The Saginaw team is excited to work with SCC and is looking forward to developing a program for students to be able to job shadow operations, warehousing, and sales in distribution in the near future.
