“Walking out of the Colorado Homebuilding Academy Career Fair, not only did I leave with new networking connections, but I left with a sense of accomplishment because of all the potential candidates I spoke with. Each person I spoke with was prepared with questions and genuine interest in pursuing a career within the trades. It was truly an honor be a part of the ABC & CHA Career Fair and I look forward to participating again in the future!” said Alanna Raimondi, ABC Member and Duro Electric HR and Admin Assistant.
This joint venture career fair resulted from a recent partnership between ABCRMC and CHA in which both organizations recognized a mutual mission: to recruit skilled talent into the construction trades. The Academy is training skilled workers who are excellent candidates for the significant number of both residential and commercial construction industry jobs. Overall, the career fair was a tremendous success and both organizations look forward to collaborating again in the near future.
