Construction Management Alumnus Profile – George Brown College

Construction Management Alumnus Profile – George Brown College


BRUNO GIANCOLA: I’m
proudest of the fact that I was able to choose an
industry and grow in an industry that I love what I do. [music] BRUNO GIANCOLA: So,
leaving college is always a scary thing for anybody. When I graduated through
the job fair, I had been offered a couple of starting role
positions with Tridel. So, my first project was a
project by the name of Governor’s Hill. I started off on that job
site as my clerk position and when you do get involved
and engaged in a career that you’ve studied
for, you start realizing as you’re going
through this that, “Hey, I remember that. I know what that is.” The base that George
Brown engages you in is that base that the
industry revolves around. George Brown now has a
co-op program in their four-year graduate program and
we actually hired two students through that program. VITO SANTOLI: Ninety five per
cent of the co-op students that we use, we actually
end up hiring and they’re from George Brown. With George Brown, the
reason why I enjoyed the program is it’s not all theory. There’s also practical. And Bruno is very goal-oriented. He’s very professional,
especially with our internal — or external customers. BRUNO GIANCOLA: It’s important
for the graduates and George Brown to understand where
the industry is going. The world is changing and the
excitement is the technology. The graduates that come
out of George Brown will actually initiate change
in their knowledge and their education as to
we do as an industry. Everyday is a different
challenge, a different problem. I tell the staff that I work
with, my teammates, that there wasn’t problems,
they wouldn’t need us. It’s good that things
come up and we have the know-how or the energy to
resolve those problems. [music]
