The St. Louis Agency on Training and Employment (SLATE) American Job Center (AJC) will conduct a Construction Information Session for job seekers interested in working as a Cement Mason. The event will take place on Tuesday, April 14, at 10:00 a.m. at SLATE AJC, 1520 Market St, 1st Floor Conference Room, St. Louis, MO 63103. SLATE AJC has partnered with Cement Masons Local 527 Construction Training School to offer this informational event.

At the information session, counselors from the Cement Masons Local 527 will explain details of their apprenticeship program, answer questions about the application process, and provide career guidance and networking opportunities.

Cement masons help build the ever-changing skyline and contour of our metropolitan area. They work on commercial, residential and heavy highway projects. They perform all forms of concrete work, including setting forms, placing concrete and finishing concrete surfaces.

While it is hard labor, the rewards are great as cement masons have helped produce structures such as the Edward Jones Dome and the Savvis Center, playing a prominent role in building new landmarks for the St. Louis area.

Construction industry sector jobs are predicted to grow significantly between now and 2016. Many Cement Masons apprentices will be needed to satisfy the workforce requirements to complete a growing number of major St. Louis area construction projects.

Attendees should bring their resume and dress appropriately. Those not registered with SLATE AJC will be asked to register onsite. SLATE recommends parking at Kiel Center Garage, situated immediately behind our building, at the corner of Clark &16th.
