On Thursday February 15, 2018, HISD Contractors and Houston area participants interested in a career in construction attended the HISD Construction Career Combine hosted by D. Samuels & Associates (DSA). Participants were tested in a series of construction related activities and selected for on the spot interviews with a variety of HISD contractors.
“Many participants felt that the combine event gave them an opportunity they normally wouldn't have had,” stated Job Developer Anthony Wallace. “It tested their skills, they had fun and at the same time were given employment opportunities."
Top performers were identified and awarded for their outstanding performance. All participants were given the opportunity to attend DSA’s follow up career development program “$1,000,000 Blueprint” to further their knowledge of what it takes to have a successful career in construction. Classes for the program begin February 27, 2018.
We would like to thank all of the hiring contractors Gonzales Electrical Services, EDH Plumbing, Oxford Builders and Milam Painting for their involvement in the combine. We are looking forward to more opportunities to engage, empower and employ young, eager individuals in the construction industry.
The next Construction Career Combine is scheduled for May 10, 2018.
