Supporting Local Area Schools to Further Trade Careers
July 27, 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.”John Rundquist of the Osseo Track & Field Program
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.
