Neenah, Wis. – Miron Construction Co., Inc. presented to approximately 3,200 students from 26 area middle schools at the Fox Cities 8th grade Career Fair on March 28th at Players Choice in Appleton. Representatives from Miron presented on the roles, responsibilities and educational requirements of a crane operator. Participants also had the opportunity to learn proper crane hand signals from Chad Smith, crane operator for Miron Construction.
During the event, students took an assessment to help determine which of the three ‘career clusters’ they visited throughout the day. Volunteers from local businesses interacted with the students, explaining the education and skill sets required to work in various industries.
Other ‘career cluster’ areas included agriculture, food and natural resources; business, management and administration; education and training; finance, government and public administration; hospitality and tourism; and public safety and security, among others.
