Thinking Beyond Today

The Career Resource Center is coming! This pilot project between Tarlton and BJC HealthCare will showcase careers in union construction trades and in healthcare. The center will be houses in a converted construction trailer on the site of the future Siteman Cancer Center at Northwest HealthCare/Christian Hospital.

The center will be open every Tuesday morning and one Saturday morning each month, welcoming guests between Sept. 4 and Nov 13, and then again from Jan. 8 to April 23, 2019. High school students will have the opportunity to meet representatives of labor organizations, community agencies and others who can shed light on the potential of careers in the construction trades.

Through our project partnership with BJC and Christian Hospital, the Career Resource Center will also feature information about jobs and careers in healthcare, with job interest surveys and hands-on activities planned to give students a glimpse of what certain jobs entail in our respective industries.

On Tuesdays, Tarlton will take visitors on a tour of the Siteman Cancer Center project for a real-life look at construction in progress.

We’re super-excited about the Career Resource Center and the opportunity to further educate tomorrow’s builders. Stay tuned for additional details as the center becomes a reality this summer and opens its doors in September.
