On Thursday February 22nd, Project BEST will be hosted our 4th Annual Construction Job & Career Fair at WesBanco Arena in Wheeling, WV to expose and educate students about the opportunities available in the construction trades field. Students had the ability to schedule training facility tours and explore available career options.

In the trades field, students have the opportunity to study in a tuition-free environment, allowing them to earn while they learn. We believe in the value of students being able to witness hands-on application of the work and background math involved. Local unions are losing workers at an alarming rate due to retirements. With a national and local construction labor crisis and the anticipated ethane cracker construction, an influx of new workers is desperately needed in the trades.

Local Union Apprenticeship Representatives were on hand to answer questions about the various trades and explain the different types of apprenticeship programs.
