Lakeville High School Career Jamboree (2013) - Lakeville Community Event
The 2013 Lakeville High School Career Jamboree was a very exciting and well attended event! Three (3) team members from APPRO and CERRON were able to attend the event held on on Monday, November 4, 2013:
- Casie Radford, APPRO's architect
- Kris Bockelman, CERRON's Commercial Administration Assistant
- Andrea Kaderlik, Marketing Coordinator for both APPRO and CERRON
Representing both APPRO and CERRON, these team members spoke to many of the 850 Lakeville High School (North and South) juniors who were invited to this event between 2:30 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. While meeting with the students, we had the opportunity to discuss careers in each of our respective fields of design and architecture, commercial real estate and administration, and sales and marketing.
The students asked many thoughtful questions and hopefully learned about opportunities in the commercial real estate, design, architecture and construction services fields. Many students were surprised to find out the amount of years required to obtain an architectural degree and subsequent license upon visiting with Casie. Students were also curious to find out what a typical day in commercial real estate administration or of a marketer may look like, should they choose to pursue a career in these areas of interest.
Our two sister companies, APPRO and CERRON, were joined by approximately 70 other area businesses including: agriculture, food and natural resources, arts, communication and information systems, business management and administration, engineering, manufacturing and technology, health sciences technology and human services. It was a full house indeed!
The entire team at APPRO Development and CERRON Commercial Properties, is thrilled to be a part of the Lakeville community and to volunteer our time for events like this. We were very encouraged and highly optimistic about the future of our community as a result of conversations with the students with whom we met this week!
