Adolfson & Peterson Construction’s (AP) Southwest Region recently joined Rosendin Electric to speak with students in the Phoenix area about the importance of skilled trades and the career opportunities available to them in the construction industry.
Rosendin and AP hosted a popular booth at the Queen Creek High School Career Fair, an annual event that invites companies from 16 different fields to showcase the many career options available to students following graduation from high school or college.
In recent years, baby boomers have retired from long-held positions in the construction sector, resulting in a shortage of skilled tradespersons. The companies took the opportunity to give the students of Queen Creek advice on how to seek training and apprenticeships for careers in construction-related trades.
“As a general contractor, we know first-hand there’s more demand than supply when it comes to skilled tradespersons like electricians right now,” said Scott Salyer, Regional Manager for AP. “We’re happy to partner with Rosendin to show students in Queen Creek the value of this career path.”
Rosendin is one of the region’s largest electrical contracting companies focused on heavy industrial, commercial, and high-tech construction with a history of landmark projects in Arizona.
“The electrical apprenticeship program through the IBEW (International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers) and NECA (National Electrical Contractors Association) provides opportunities for people to become a skilled craftsman in a highly specialized industry with structured, hands-on learning and Rosendin is proud to support these local programs,” said Aimee Olmedo, Rosendin Training Coordinator.
