Shortly before summer break, area employers staffed booths hoping to interest Canyons Technical Education Center students for a job or internship.

AMES Construction assistant recruiter Joana Gurney said she had been impressed with the questions asked by the students.

“They want to know how they can further their skills and advancements in career opportunities as well as how it pertains to their studies,” she said.

Her colleague, Christine Heidel added: “They’ve been interested in applying after learning our starting wage and about our apprenticeship program.”

Grifols Center manager Curtis Jones said it gave students an opportunity to learn about careers they hadn’t considered as he answered many students’ questions.

“They may know about nursing, but not about phlebotomy or even donating plasma,” he said. “I was able to tell them the benefits and options and it provided a good learning opportunity as well as a career or job possibility.”
