The two-day event will bring together trade union representatives throughout New Jersey to provide information to students, parents, teachers, guidance counselors and job seekers about starting a rewarding career in the construction industry.  Last year, the “Just Juniors” event was attended by approximately 1,500 students from dozens of school districts across the state from Atlantic County to Warren County.  

“Construction Industry Career Day gives high school students more information about what it’s like to work in the construction industry,” said Ridgeley Hutchinson, Executive Director of the Northeast Carpenters Apprentice Training and Educational Fund. “A career in the building trades is a good one and provides individuals the opportunity to make a good wage and secure great health and retirement benefits with ZERO college debt.”
