Nearly two dozen School of Civil and Environmental Engineering students have a new edge in their job searches, courtesy of JE Dunn Construction Company’s Atlanta office.
The company hosted the students on an early November Saturday for 10 hours of certified Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) workplace safety training. It’s knowledge Associate Professor Yong Cho said will add polish to the students’ resumes.
“Students will get a certificate, which makes them more competitive in their job search,” he said.
The Georgia Tech chapter of Associated General Contractors started offering the training last year. This fall, JE Dunn stepped in to provide the workshop and lunch for the undergraduate and graduate students who participated.
