For the last several years Sukut Construction has participated in the Associated Schools of Construction (ASC) Competition in Sparks, Nevada. This year, the 32nd annual ASC Regions 6 and 7 Student Competition took place from Wednesday, February 6 through Saturday, February 9, 2019. The competitions and the following job fair allow heavy civil engineering students better understand the industry through direct involvement in a bidding process and a presentation in front of a panel of judges, and participating heavy civil general contractors. The students from the ASC competitions are considered top-notch which is why 110 companies chose to participate in the job fair following the competitions.
Sukut was involved in the process in various ways: as a faculty sponsor for the California State University, Long Beach team, opening a Hospitality Suite to students Friday night to unwind after the competitions, as well as meeting faculty and students at a job fair on Saturday. Well-prepared for the event, Sukut had 12 employees attending the competitions and the job fair. The Company’s goal was to meet students for internship opportunities and share information about its employees, projects, culture, and career development. Sukut’s team was pleased to see a lot of talented students and an equal amount of competition. They met over 50 students at the job fair and will follow up with 18 students, with six already being invited to interview at Sukut in their Santa Ana office. With a successful turnaround, Sukut is looking forward to the next year’s competitions.
