NDA and the Purdue Internship Program
NDA
The National Demolition Association took part in the fall career fair at Purdue’s School of Building Construction Management on Friday, Feb. 28. The career fair was the largest since 2006 and highlighted the scramble for new workers in the construction industry. With 114 companies represented at the first of two career fairs for Purdue construction management students, it is obvious that there is growing competition for the 76 graduates expected this school year.

The NDA’s ongoing support of the demolition courses at Purdue as well as the NDA student chapter continues to bear fruit with an enthusiastic group of students interested in working in the demolition field. The resumes received from that group are now available on the NDA members only website.

The Purdue Internship Program is a great way to bring new talent into your organization. Mark Shaurette, department chair, offers this advice for demolition companies: “The best way to beat the competition is to hire a student as a summer intern. Hiring an intern will expose a student to the real word of demolition and provide a no-risk opportunity to see what the student can offer your company in the future.”
