Brandon and Elly at the OSU Career Fair

OSU Career Fair

O’Brien Design+Build had a dominant presence at our first ever OSU Career Fair in February. We met dozens of eager, young talented professionals looking to place their newly accredited skills.

Alex Noble, Brandon Venegas, Elly Carroll and Wayne Corrick represented O’Brien & OCA at the Winter OSU Civil, Construction & Architectural Engineering Fair in February in Corvallis.  This was an inaugural event for us. We were very proud to have participated in this among many of our industry partners such as MacKenzie, ZCS, and Kirby-Nagelhout.  Standing by examples of our innovation as one of the first tables students saw was exciting. The timing of the Winter Fair is perfect, as students in the final year of academia are there to make their first official professional step after completing their degree.  Many had industry experience by way of internships throughout their collegiate path and some would be entering the workplace in their specified field for the first time. We met with so many bright, driven and qualified candidates for positions in fields related to Architecture/Design and Civil/Construction Management including a couple specializing in BIM. Overall, 25 resumes were gathered and 6 were entered into a final candidate pool for potential hire. The proudest report of the day though, was being able to tell students about their very own OSU Alumni, Alex Noble, and his successful path with O’Brien Design+Build post-graduation.
