Industries Seeking South Tech Talent
Our Construction Innovations and Welding juniors are being sought by area employers. Representatives from several St. Louis construction-related contracting and design firms presented to our students last week and shared comprehensive presentations about the opportunities available.
Industry partners in attendance were AMF Electric, Mosby Building Arts, ABF Security, the Independent Electrical Contractors, and Roeslein Engineering, Fabricators & Design. All emphasized that jobs are available and they are eager to hire young, talented, and ambitious new employees. South Tech students were able to ask questions and meet with the representatives after their presentations.
Barclay Hirth, COI and Electrical Trades instructor and organizer of the event, said he was pleased with the level of engagement and the interest among students. Creating opportunities for our students to meet directly with employers is a key contribution our teachers provide to enhance instruction. Students appreciate meeting with mentoring employees, human resource professionals, and others from their program’s related industries. We are always ready to meet with new companies who would like to join our schools as industry partners. If you or your company would like to explore a partnership with Tech, please contact Kevin Andert, our Manager of College and Career Readiness, at 989-8256 or KGAndert@ssdmo.org.
