High school students in New Jersey are invited to Construction Industry Career Day 2022, which was cancelled the previous two years as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The two-day event will be May 31 to June 1 at the New Jersey Convention and Exposition Center in Edison. It will showcase the construction industry’s educational opportunities and occupations, while providing participants with hands-on activities within many of the trades.

Members of the public are invited to attend from 4 to 8 p.m., May 31, including students, parents and anyone looking to pursue a new career.

June 1 is reserved specifically for high school students. To attend, however, students must register by April 30 as capacity is limited to 2,500 people.

The free event will provide all who attend with information on construction career options, educational requirements, stackable and transferable credentials, wage progression and more.

Both days will include hands-on demonstrations from New Jersey’s construction trades, as well as display booths for colleges, trade associations and federal and state agencies.

Face coverings will be required.
