Our employees participate in the development of real-life critical thinking problems for the classroom, present to local classrooms about what we do here at Pickering Associates, host shadow students and group tours, and participate in local career expos and job fairs.

Nick Arnold on Building Bridges to Careers

“I enjoy being a part of the BBC organization because of the bonds they are forming with our local school districts and students,” says Nick Arnold, BIM Coordinator. “Nurturing the next generation of thinkers and doers in our local workforce is such a privilege. Connecting with professionals in my local area always inspired me as a student, and I’m honored to be able to pay that forward.”
