Residential Construction Career Day (RCCD)
Residential Construction Career Day (RCCD) is an annual event that is a collaboration between the MassHire Cape & Islands Workforce Board and the Home Builders & Remodelers Association of Cape Cod. The purpose of this event is to bring awareness to high school students, career and guidance counselors, educators and administrators about the opportunities for careers on Cape Cod within the construction industry. Students are provided with hands-on learning opportunities, as well as the option to speak with industry professionals regarding future employment/internship prospects, job shadow and informational interview opportunities. RCCD assists students with envisioning a career pathway within this prominent Cape Cod industry. The support our community and school partners lends yearly is instrumental in the success of this event.
In 2021, RCCD was held virtually on Zoom. Students had the opportunity to listen to a panel of ten professionals from the construction industry. Some of whom own their own business and others represented companies within the region. This event was engaging for the students as they had the opportunity to communicate with the professionals using the Zoom chat feature.
