Trades Hub provides what you need for every step of your career journey

The Trades Ambassador Project began with the mission of inspiring and enabling our youngest generation to find fulfillment and value through Trades & Manufacturing careers. As the TAP has grown, we have deepened, expanded, and strengthened our relationships with educators and employers alike. Now, we are entering a new phase of the TAP. We are looking to increase our targeted effort around connecting with educators and students, and in turn supporting them better, in the Twin Cities Metro.

We at the TAP are looking for a Student Engagement Coordinator to join our team alongside Chuck Webster [owner], Kelley Nelsen [Director of Recruiting and Retaining], and Sean Zimny [Research Associate].

The Student Engagement Coordinator (SEC) will be responsible for working closely with educational leaders to promote the Trades Hub and the Trades Ambassador Experience (TAE) in order to help integrate these resources into classrooms as the main Trades & Manufacturing career exploration tool. In addition, a primary responsibility will be building the Trades Hub & Trades Ambassador Project (TAP) brand directly with students while igniting a peer to peer movement that drives attraction to our resources and drives traffic to our website, resulting in students using the Trades Hub website to find entry level positions post graduation or technical training programs. The SEC will act as a liaison between all educator contacts and will inform our work to ensure we are creating resources that support students in their career exploration efforts, working to create sustainable relationships with all relevant groups.

To accomplish these goals, the SEC will get the opportunity to spend considerable time in the field with educational professionals and gain presenting, marketing, leadership, project management, and professional development experience. In addition to all of this, the SEC will be joining the Trades Hub + BridgeWorks team of dedicated professionals who truly care about the mission of the organization and each other.

Please see this included job description for additional details. For any interest in this Student Engagement Coordinator position, please reach out to Sean Zimny (sean.zimny@generations.com) and/or Kelley Nelsen (nelsen@generations.com).
