Alignment Rockford

Posted: 10/16/2015

Representatives from Civiltech attended the Alignment Rockford Academy Expo on October 15. It was held at the BMO Harris Bank Center in downtown Rockford. The expo was for high school freshman in Rockford Area Public School Districts to explore career opportunities so they can align their high school classes with their potential career.

There were approximately 3,000 students from 10 different high schools. The Expo had four separate career categories: BAMIT (Business, Arts, Modern World Languages and Information Technology), EMITT (Engineering, Manufacturing, Industrial and Trades Technology), HPS (Human and Public Service) and HS (Health Sciences).

Civiltech employees discussed civil engineering career opportunities with interested students. They highlighted the Grant Park Skateboard Park and shared a video that was developed to promote the park opening. They also had exhibit boards showing some of our other projects and the type of work we do.
