Working in Public Works Student Forum

Sunday, February 23 | 2:00pm – 5:00pm – $20

Looking for a long term career that offers development, benefits and a wide variety of possibilities? Have you thought about the municipal sector?

A wave of retirements is currently hitting Ontario’s municipal workers. Municipalities provide essential services that are key to maintaining a high quality of life, it is imperative that they be staffed by qualified and competent individuals. This rings truest in public works. Those working in this field help ensure that our infrastructure doesn’t collapse, that our roads remain clear, and that our water is safe to drink.

As part of the 2020 OGRA Conference, students will have the opportunity to speak directly with public works professionals. A panel of public works professionals will share their thoughts and experiences with students interested in this type of career. Students in attendance will learn:

  • Why they should consider a career in municipal public works;
  • The type of knowledge, skills, abilities/competencies, or qualifications one must have to work for their municipality;
  • What it takes to succeed;
  • The opportunities for growth;
  • How the industry is evolving; and
  • What to expect in this line of work.

The panel discussion will be followed by a networking session. Those with a background in engineering and engineering technology are encouraged to attend. Speakers will be announced in the coming weeks!

Registration to the Working in Public Works Student Forum grants access to the entire OGRA Conference (excluding ticketed events) as a Student Delegate!
