MICHIGAN CONSTRUCTION CAREER DAYS (MICCD)
Since 2008, MI Construction Career Days has been Michigan’s premiere construction career exploration event. Based on the National Career Day model, MICCD provides Michigan’s young people a chance to experience construction up close, getting the chance to use real tools, materials, and heavy equipment under the direct guidance of construction professionals from all sectors of the industry.
Young people will not only see what construction is but learn of the training and education paths to secure the good-paying jobs a career in construction provides.
