The 8th Annual Western New York Construction Career Days continues in Lakeview Thursday. The two-day event is geared towards high school students and veterans.
The event offers students and veterans a first-hand look at what jobs in the trades entail. WNY Construction Career Days Committee Chair John Magney said in many cases, schools are only directing students to college.
"And as we all know we're not all cut out for college. You see these kids walk away from this event really thinking that this could be an opportunity for a career," said Magney.
