With ever-changing tools and technology, preparing tomorrow’s workforce can be a complex undertaking. Thanks to the Corporate Tomorrow Makers program at Penn College, the relationship between industry and education is mutually beneficial. Students get scholarship opportunities and hands-on experience with equipment just like they’ll find in the field. Plus, industry partners get skilled professionals to fill in-demand positions. It’s a win-win for the future.

HOW DID YOUR COMPANY FIRST CONNECT WITH PENN COLLEGE?

Mowery first connected with Penn College to discuss recruiting and retaining top talent/students in this region.

HOW HAS ENROLLING AS A CORPORATE TOMORROW MAKER ENHANCED YOUR PARTNERSHIP WITH PENN COLLEGE?

As a corporate tomorrow maker, we feel that we can provide a deeper understanding to faculty, staff, and students about what technologies are propelling the construction industry today as well as be introduced to the students who would be a good fit for our culture and environment.

WHAT QUALITIES OF PENN COLLEGE STUDENTS MAKE THEM STAND OUT FOR YOUR OPERATIONS?

Penn College students are provided a wide array of learning experiences from hands-on to technology that you do not often see today. We feel that the students have the right background and foundation to do well in the construction industry.

WHAT ASPECTS OF YOUR COMPANY ATTRACT OUR STUDENTS AND FUTURE STUDENTS TO JOIN YOUR OPERATIONS?

We are innovative, fun, and growing. There are plentiful opportunities to get in and immediately make an impact on our projects and work on some exciting, once-in-a-lifetime teams.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU SHARE WITH HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS (AND PARENTS) WHO ARE CONSIDERING PENN COLLEGE?

I would say look at the track record of alumni and how the school is setting your students up for success post-graduation. We feel that Penn College exposes students to a multitude of career options within their field and gives them the best chance to find the right fit for them long term.

WHAT PROFESSIONAL ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE PENN COLLEGE STUDENTS TO BEST PREPARE THEM TO JOIN YOUR TEAM?

Do multiple internships in different fields within your area of study. You will get exposed to many different facets of construction and hopefully find the one area you really like or be able to realize there's an area which isn't for you.
