More than 1,200 high school students will attend the 9th Annual Massachusetts Construction Career Days (MassCCD) to learn about industry job opportunities, including the construction, engineering, surveying and environmental fields with both union and open-shop companies. The industry faces a shortage of young, qualified workers. MassCCD was created to help address this shortage and to educate high-school students about the wide range of career opportunities available in the construction industry.  At the event, students will learn how to operate backhoes, excavators, jackhammers, pavers, etc. and participate in concrete finishing, welding, cutting and burning, electrical work, carpentry, laying brick and block, surveying, field engineering and take part in other hands-on activities.
