Many of our members can provide job shadow days with high school students interested in construction related careers.  Other members hire college interns over the summer or winter breaks, such as the Department of Public Works in Goffstown, NH where one member, Meghan Theriault is the Town Engineer. 


Each summer Goffstown hires two full time college interns to help with the Town's pavement management program, construction and drainage outfall inspections and assistance with many other tasks.  Interns are taught how to use AutoCAD so that they can practice making edits to construction plan sets.  Often times they attend project meetings or perform site inspections for erosion control and utility installation.  To learn more about where our members work and what they do, see the "Our NH Members" page.  If you see something that interests you, contact us below and we will try to set up a job shadow day for you.

If you're a high school student in New Hampshire with an interest in a construction or transportation-related career, mark your calendar for our annual NH Construction Career Days event in September! Visit our website for more information and inquire with your teacher or guidance counselor about registering your school for this fantastic event at the Hopkinton Fairgrounds. Don't miss out!

This event, organized by several NAWIC members and other volunteers, increases career awareness through hands-on experience with heavy equipment, welding, small tools, plumbing, electrical wiring, surveying, engineering, land clearing, underground utilities, and other construction related jobs. 

As a student, you will have ample opportunities to drive heavy equipment, try your hand at welding, plumbing, carpentry or electrical work.  We also have engineering challenges, surveying, storm water activities and tree climbing.  There are many representatives from local colleges and apprenticeship programs in attendance.
