NCCER announces fourth annual Careers in Construction Week

The National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) will recognize the work of craft professionals in construction during the fourth annual Careers in Construction Week, to be held October 13-17, 2008.
The event promotes public awareness of the contributions of craft professionals, as well as encouraging awareness among parents, teachers, guidance counselors and students about the rewarding career opportunities available in construction.
During this week, NCCER will also broadcast the 2008 Build Your Future career awareness video, which features interviews from craft professionals experiencing a rewarding construction career. Contractors, schools and industry associations throughout the country will conduct career fairs and various construction-related activities to help promote construction career opportunities in their communities.
