Would like to start working ASAP so he can help his parents out. Loves lifting heavy things! Wants to start at the bottom so when he gets higher up he understands what it’s like to be down there.
DJ Earl was placed with Higgins which is part of the Fletcher family. He is eager to get into work but was unsure of his future job prospects and was looking for a chance to try different roles.
BuildAKL would like to wish all of the awesome #BuildAKL competition winners the very best of luck on the first day of their 4 week paid internship!
"It was pretty fast! We can nail 250m of kerbing in one day." Earl and DJ are working on a Higgins project, placing new kerbs on roads around Auckland.
Watch the video to see how it's done!
Falling asleep on the job... #NotYourFinestHour, DJ? "The low of my week was probably when I was so excited for traffic I couldn't get much sleep the night before and I fell asleep at work 😩😩" Fletcher Building Careers is just too exciting!
Tough day at the office, DJ? "First time dealing with difficult pedestrians trying to make their own detours instead of following ours lol. Good experience helps with my patience" #LifeLesson
Look at how HAPPY they are! That's because they're having the time of their lives learning on the job with #Higgins. That could be YOU! Find out how by clicking on the link below. #Fletcher Building Careers #BuildAKL
Where to from here
DJ loved the traffic management he got do with Higgins and wants to get a job as a traffic controller then working his way up to be a STMS.
A drivers licence is very important for working in traffic management, DJ is working towards getting his license so he can gain a permanent role as Traffic Controller.
