CAGC Partners with Veterans ASCEND to connect veterans to Carolinas construction careers


The Carolinas Associated General Contractors (CAGC) says it is partnering with Veterans ASCEND  to offer a web-based service which will assist military service members, veterans, and military spouses in obtaining commercial construction industry careers.

“This initiative equally serves the construction industry during a time when there is a huge skills gap and a great need for an expanded workforce,” the association said in a July 14 statement. “Veterans ASCEND impacts an organization’s competitive advantage by aligning military talent so that available positions are quickly filled to increase productivity and retention. Through a web-based service which will offer direct communication, CAGC members will be matched with program participants based on participants’ specific skillsets and location.”

CAGC member Rich Adams with Wurster Engineering, after attending a recent demonstration of the service, said “I found the demonstration of the new Veterans ASCEND program to be very promising.”

“The administrator seemed very knowledgeable on the challenges we face in the current market as employers of construction labor. I’m very hopeful that this new service will be another valuable tool for recruiting and to a perhaps under-tapped source of candidates.”

“We are honored to utilize our AI-powered Talent Sourcing platform to match candidates with a CAGC member organization whose intentional effort to hire military talent will contribute to the successful transition and long-term success of our military families,” sid Veterans ASCEND founder and CEO said Robyn Grable.

The CAGC statement says: “Veterans ASCEND, a veteran-owned, woman-owned company, completely changes the way employers find and hire military talent through an innovative, digital-skills matching software as a service. A custom translation program translates military and civilian occupations into a skills profile, removing barriers and bias by automatically matching candidates to the needs of an organization. Getting to true candidates quickly and efficiently, Veterans ASCEND is a one-of-a-kind talent sourcing platform.”
