Times have changed, but the demand for a skilled construction workforce has not.
As the COVID-19 pandemic has continued, the Colorado Homebuilding Academy has worked hard to revaluate and revamp their programs to provide the same services to students but in a new and creative way. With the construction industry still booming as an essential business, and unemployment rates higher than ever, they had to find a way to get students into jobs in the industry.
The Academy’s first monthly Virtual Job Fair was held on October 1st, 2020, and had 30 students and 20 employers vying for spots. These events will continue monthly, connecting students with local employers. All construction industry employers from around the state are invited the participate, and any current or former students of the Academy may meet with these employers.
Though options are limited, the Colorado Homebuilding Academy is committed to supporting the community and the construction industry by continually placing our students into jobs that can become lifelong careers.
