Columbia Hosts Job Fair for MWL Union Job Seekers
More than 250 people attended Columbia University's job fair for minority, women and local union construction workers on September 10, 2013. Crescent Consulting helped coordinate the event and was joined by Lend Lease, Structure Tone and Sciame Construction. The event provided job seekers with opportunities to meet subcontractors hiring for four different construction projects including projects at the Columbia University Medical Center and the new Manhattanville campus development. Attendees were also able to participate in work-readiness workshops and speak with representatives from local unions, Columbia Human Resources, and other local organizations to learn more about employment, certification and job training programs.
