Howard S. Wright Career Day

December 8, 2022 | 8:45 am - 1:30 pm

Go behind the scenes with Howard S. Wright to see Portland’s booming construction industry! Learn what it takes to build impressive buildings, highways, bridges, and railway and water projects.

Explore careers in construction management & the trades. Learn from industry pros about areas such as building information modeling, bidding & project management, and virtual reality, then do hands-on learning and tour a construction site to see those plans come to life. This year, students will visit the nearby Ritz-Carlton hotel project. Students should wear comfortable, closed-toe walking shoes and warm clothing.
