The National Center for Construction Education and Research, through its Build Your Future initiative, is excited to announce the national expansion of its career exploration tool, CareerStarter. This new program provides direct connections between entry-level job seekers, local training programs, and employers.
When considering an opportunity in construction, many are unsure of where to begin. CareerStarter’s career exploration tools help bridge the gap between curiosity and a construction career. The advantage of CareerStarter comes through bringing together all members of the career path process into one place.
There are great reasons for people in any role to join the CareerStarter platform. Students and job seekers can use the exploration resources to discover potential career paths, then find the right educational or work opportunities to help them take their next steps. Employers can find talent for their company by building a business profile, posting free and unlimited entry-level job listings, and using the automatic candidate matching feature. Plus, educators can promote their training program while monitoring students’ activity on the tool and tracking the direct success stories of their program.
In the opening months of CareerStarter, the tool has already helped hundreds of future craft professionals take their first steps into the construction field. This program is free of charge to individuals, schools, employers, and training programs.
