High School Students Enjoy Career Day

American Structurepoint and the Advancing Women Group hosted 20 high school students on Friday,  June 9, eager to learn more about potential careers in our industry. Their half-day session included hearing from company President Rick Conner, learning about some of our high-profile projects in many of our disciplines, doing a hands-on marshmallow challenge where they worked as a team to build a freestanding structure, asking questions of a six-person panel of American Structurepoint professionals representing civil/site engineering, environmental services, IT, road engineering, marketing, and structural engineering, and experiencing demonstrations of company disciplines in action. The students finished their day with a town hall meeting, lunch, and a bag of American Structurepoint swag to take with them. The students truly appreciated the opportunity to discover more about challenging career opportunities and what it takes to work for a company like ours. Here are some representative comments collected from the participants.

  • I loved how we got to talk to other engineers about what they do in their everyday life!
  • I liked hearing exact details of what engineers do, about good engineering schools, and what classes to take.
  • I liked exploring the many disciplines and careers involved at a firm like American Structurepoint.
  • I liked how we went to the different buildings and saw the different environments people work in.

Thanks to everyone who helped with planning and executing the event.
