Recording: Connect and Learn - Build Your Career
Our Build Your Career Workforce Initiative hosted this Connect and Learn on Friday, April 16, 2021. BYC Director Tammy Ford discussed how to get involved with and connected to the BYC program, best practices for conducting virtual outreach, and how to partner with BYC to promote and showcase your construction career awareness outreach activities.
Participants also heard first hand from BYC Ambassador Chad Wallace with W.M. Jordan Company about his experiences with the program. Representatives from two connection platforms available to students, educators and employers in North and South Carolina—the WBL Navigator System in NC and the Tallo System in SC, also spoke about their resources and tools designed to better connect K-12 schools with employers’ work-based learning opportunities like job shadowing, apprenticeships and internships and we will walk through steps on how you can get registered for each.
