Career Day 2012

Last Friday, Ernst & Haas hosted its 2nd Annual Career Day, welcoming 13 kids between the ages of 5 and 16 to come and learn all about having a career in property management.

The morning kicked off with a tour of the office, where the kids got to meet the Ernst & Haas staff and learn about each department and position. They particularly enjoyed chatting with our Broker David Haas, where they asked him all sorts of questions about owning your own business and the pros and cons of being your own boss.

The morning continued with the first art project of the day, allowing the kids to dip their hands in paint and create the art piece pictured above. Our vendor JD Custom Home Builders did a wonderful job providing us with the wood piece for this project.

Dewey Pest Control, another one of our vendors, came by and brought some critters along (dead, of course) for the kids to look at and learn about. They couldn’t stop buzzing about the different insects they saw!

They then learned all about about “going green” and how that’s a priority at Ernst & Haas, and went on to create two art projects made from reusable materials.

The day ended with a pizza party, where each child was able to spend some time with the staff member that brought them.

Overall, it was a very fun, successful day of educating the youth about our field and why it’s great to have a career in property management!
