By Matthew Straub, Marketing Coordinator at Straub Construction
Over a four week period, Straub Construction visited four college campuses in Kansas and Missouri. These colleges were; Missouri State University, Kansas State University, Pittsburg State University, and The University of Central Missouri, all of which have prestigious construction programs.
Our goal was to interview potential candidates for internship and full time positions.
At Missouri State and University of Central Missouri, we attended career fairs organized by the colleges, and conducted interviews the next day. At Kansas State and Pittsburg State, we hosted presentations about Straub Construction with pizza and drinks, followed by interviews the following days. Each of the college visits were a tremendous success and we were very impressed with the organization and professionalism of each host university.
Over the four days following the career fairs and presentations, we interviewed almost sixty students.
Throughout those days, every student showed up to their interviews, were on time, and dressed professionally. Our Straub team was extremely impressed with the amount of professionalism, character, talent, and hard work that all these students displayed. These universities are doing a great job preparing their students not only for interviews, but also for a bright future in the construction industry.
We’re thrilled to bring many of these students into our Straub Construction family, both through internships and full time positions. The future looks bright for these students and for Straub Construction.
