Paschen is one of over 30 companies in the construction industry participating in the ComEd CONSTRUCT program. CONSTRUCT offers more than 60 students the training, information, and guidance needed to compete for entry-level jobs with good compensation in construction-related fields.
On March 18th, Paschen attended Company Overview Day, which gave CONSTRUCT students a brief summary of Paschen’s business, the types of work we do, and information on possible available positions. On April 8th, we participated in the Career Awareness Fair where CONSTRUCT students were able to ask additional questions about the company and to meet Paschen employees.
The Company Overview Day and the Career Awareness Fair prepared CONSTRUCT students to select companies for job shadowing opportunities. Paschen also participated in two days of job shadowing (April 19th and May 3rd). Each day, we took three CONSTRUCT students to two jobsites. All six students were interested in field positions.
