Careers in Construction Month (CICM) is an initiative of Build Your Future and NCCER, created to promote the wide range of successful and lucrative construction career paths and to enlighten the public's perceptions of construction. This year's focus is to encourage industry representatives and educators to make meaningful connections.
PROCLAIM OCTOBER AS CAREERS IN CONSTRUCTION MONTH
Start by helping get your state to proclaim October as Careers in Construction Month. Filing a proclamation is easy and the more voices reaching out to state officials, the better. Start here to get your state on the map. All participants who let Build Your Future know they submitted a proclamation will be entered to win one of three $300 gift cards.
Let Others Know About the Glazing Trade
As part of CICM, we're partnering with Build Your Future to help educate the general public about the opportunities the glass & glazing industry has to offer. Part of that education is reaching out to local schools and technical colleges to let students know our trade exists. People don’t know that they can build a career as a glazier, and it’s our job to tell them.
