Supporting Local Area Schools to Further Trade Careers

Friday, September 30th, 2022

Over the course of the year, Egan Company has supported the local Osseo Area Schools in several ways to further the future workforce by promoting careers in the construction trade industry. 

Earlier this spring, our Human Resources team participated in mock interviews with high school students who were nearing their high school graduation. Through practicing and receiving feedback, students were equipped to feel more comfortable entering the job market. 

“We saw a huge turnout at this Mock Interview event. It was great to see students take our comments to heart and will go into interviews now knowing much more than before. We also got to promote the opportunities in the construction industry while speaking with them,” said Egan Human Resources Generalist Tracy Pease.

Further supporting this district, Egan also provided a spaghetti dinner for the Osseo High School Track and Field student athletes before they had their final home meet of the season. During the meal, they heard about the futures that trades careers provide and the doors that are opened when working in the field. Jeremy Quam, Egan Company Project Manager, was able to provide them with a look into the industry and how it had impacted his life. 

“I was able to encourage the students at Osseo High School about different career paths in the construction industry, the excellent training and benefits they’ll receive, as well as the career development opportunities that are presented at a place like Egan,” states Jeremy Quam.

“THANK YOU EGAN COMPANY! Osseo Track and Field continues to be in awe of your generosity and desire to come alongside our program to help meet the needs on and off the track. [We] are humbled, but oh so excited for the opportunities.”

Egan also participated in a career fair at Park Center Senior High at the end of the school year for students and their parents, sharing more about job openings and potential career opportunities for the future.

Staying involved and giving back to the local community is a crucial part of who Egan is as an organization. Students are the future of the workforce and we’re proud to support career development in our local community.

Developing the next generation of the workforce

Ever wondered what a summer looks like as part of Egan’s internship experience? We’re peeling back the curtain to give you an inside look at all that our interns did this summer. Back in full swing this year after two years of remote work, we welcomed 11 interns this summer.

Bridging the company, interns worked on projects within Egan’s Service, Industrial Controls, IT, HR, and Southern Minnesota teams. Within their teams, interns were mentored by coworkers, completed projects, participated in meetings, and were integrated into the flow of operations. 

A few events hosted for our intern group included:

  • Kick-Off Breakfast: Interns were welcomed by our leadership team and provided with an overview of all things Egan.
  • Coffee and Career Conversations: Egan’s Senior Leaders provided their best tips and advice for entering the workforce as a professional.
  • Jobsite Ride Along: All of the interns spent a half day visiting different job sites, learning about Egan’s culture of safety while seeing our business in action.
  • Resume Workshop: Members of the Human Resources team reviewed the interns’ resumes and provided them with their expertise on setting yourself apart in an ever-active job market.
  • Capstone Presentations: At the completion of the program, all interns were able to deliver a presentation sharing their experience and takeaways from being an intern.

Always a bonus to the accomplishments and skills built with the Egan internship experience is new bonds and friendships made. Programmer Intern Jorge Mancilla, stated “My biggest takeaway from interning at Egan was how important it is to build meaningful connections with the people around you. Learning the actual job isn’t too hard when you have experienced professionals mentoring and guiding you whenever you have questions.”
