Middle Bucks Institute of Technology (MBIT) recently teamed up with the Home Builders Association of Bucks and Montgomery Counties, in Fort Washington, Pa., to host a Building Bright Futures Career Fair for more than 200 MBIT students on March 15.

The HBA created a Workforce Development Council to help address the skilled trades labor shortage the industry faces in the state by partnering with local Career and Technical Education schools, and 30 HBA members were in attendance to talk about their companies, how they started their careers, and the job opportunities available in the skilled trades, the National Association of Home Builders reports.

“We were thrilled to host the HBA for a career fair at MBIT. Not only did our students get to implement their employability skills by meeting with companies and sharing their resumes, but they were also introduced to over 30 industry partners eager to hire a skilled workforce,” said Dr. Mark Covelle, administrative director, MBIT.

Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.) also attended the career fair and spoke with students and industry partners.

“A true win-win for our students and the members of the HBA,” added Dr. Covelle. “We look forward to continued growth in our partnership together.”
