2019 Women in Construction: Erin Powell, Assistant Project Manager at Jewett Construction Company, Inc.

March 29, 2019 - Spotlights

How many years have you been in your current field? 3

What are you doing differently in 2019 that has had a positive impact on your career? 2019 my goal is to stay focused and take my failures as a learning opportunity to do better. Looking for the positive outcome in all situations rather then dwelling on past mistakes, in order to succeed and keep moving forward.

What was your first job and what did you learn from it? My first job out of college was working as an assistant project manager for a flooring company. I got a feel for how things are managed outside of the education perspective. I had learned that with good management, you could love the work you do, as well as the people you work with. 

What were your biggest fears when you started out in your profession? I think my biggest fear was feeling like I may not know enough to speak confidently about a topic. The industry can be intimidating, but the people in it are more than encouraging to help you get to where you want to be.
