Offering Students a Glimpse of Career Opportunities

ESD is proud to be part of the Chicago Public Schools (CPS) work-based learning initiative that connects students with future career path opportunities.

ESD Operations Director for Technology Jeff Drenovsky recently participated in the Guest Speaker Series of the CPS Work-Based Learning Program to promote the technology consulting/engineering industry as a possible career path for high school students to consider. Drenovsky says it is a great opportunity for students as the demand for engineers will only increase in coming years.

The CPS program connects classroom instruction with real-world work exposure and includes experiential learning including professional certification programs, cooperative education, and internships.

Jeff freely shares his 30+ years of technical expertise as a telecommunications engineer, consultant, instructor, estimator, foreman, and more with organizations and students to help advance ESD’s mission to improve society through the built environment.
