OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – Johnson County Community College (JCCC) will host Construction Management Career Day February 16 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Regnier Center 101. The career fair is free and open to the public.

“This event provides a great opportunity for high schoolers and those exploring career options,” said Steve Bennett, Assistant Professor in Construction Management Technology at JCCC. “They can visit with top-tier contractors in the area, learn about the industry and find out if construction might be a good fit,” he said.

The construction industry is growing rapidly and offers a variety of rewarding career paths. According to the Construction Industry Databook, industry growth and hiring is expected to continue at 5.5% through 2026.

For Construction Management students at JCCC, the career fair helps them polish their communication skills, expand their professional network and plan for the future.

“Our students gain valuable interview experience through informal conversations with employers, and learn about potential internships and job opportunities,” Bennett said.

The event also helps local companies find future talent. General contractors, engineering firms, and electrical, mechanical and structural fabrication companies will be looking to hire field engineers, assistant superintendents, project engineers, assistant project managers and estimators. Job seekers are encouraged to dress professionally and have résumés in hand.

Students or adults considering a career in construction are encouraged to stop by JCCC’s Construction Management table. Faculty will share program information and field questions on how to earn a certificate in one year or an associate degree in two.
