A Jan. 14 event will bring some of the region’s most successful contractors, engineers, architects and builders to PNC to mentor students and benefit Habitat for Humanity.
Members of the Purdue North Central Construction Club will host a networking luncheon at 11 a.m. in the PNC Library-Student-Faculty Building. This year the Construction Club is partnering with LaPorte County Habitat for Humanity to raise funds for the Building Homes and Strengthening Families challenge to help fund construction of the next Habitat home in LaPorte County. Bob Long, executive director of LaPorte County Habitat, will speak.
A 2014 Construction Club networking event raised more than $2,000 in tax-deductible donations for the club and for Habitat, and brought many professionals to PNC for the first time to chat with students in an informal setting. Students benefit by learning what employers look for when hiring, and contractors give their insights into the job market and skills required for the jobs their companies offer. Internships and full-time opportunities may be available.
Among companies planning to attend are: Berglund Construction, Chesterton; DA Dodd, Rolling Prairie; Burling Builders, Chicago; NIES Engineering, Hammond; Powers and Sons Construction, Gary; and Ziolkowski Construction, South Bend.
