The Career Resource Center introduces high school students to opportunities in construction and healthcare. We showcase the potential in union construction trades, highlighting job training and competitive compensation through interaction and technology.
Students also can explore careers in healthcare by touring and meeting with workers in a variety of healthcare settings. The program is conveniently located on the Barnes-Jewish Hospital campus.
We hope to engage students in our program to pique their interest in careers in construction or healthcare – careers that many students are not aware they can pursue directly upon graduation from high school, including:
- Union apprentices, who earn as they learn in programs such as carpentry, sheet metal, plumbing and pipefitting, welding, operators and more.
- Entry-level healthcare positions at BJC such as telemetry and lab jobs, which can lead to opportunities for higher education through education partnerships with local universities and tuition reimbursement to help along the way.
Watch this video to see what the students experience.
