Introduction to Construction and the Building Trades

The Job Connector's five-week Introduction to Construction and the Building Trades training program recently graduated its first cohort: 14 Cambridge residents spent 20 intensive hours learning about the construction industry. During the program, outside experts shared first-hand insights covering fields such as project management, environmental engineering, entrepreneurship, and the variety of work specialties in the building trades unions. Check out this two-minute video to get an inside look at the program.
