The Blueprint
Milestone 1

The Blueprint

Every successful construction project starts with a detailed plan. While you cannot perfectly plan your career ahead of time, it’s clear that if you reach The Blueprint milestone, you’ve shown a commitment to yourself, PeopleReady Skilled Trades and our customers.

The Foundation

A strong foundation is critical. Not only when you’re building a house but also when you’re building your career. By reaching The Foundation milestone, you’ve proven to our customers and to us that you want to build a strong career here – and for that, we could not be more excited!

The Framework

When the framework starts going up, you see a building take shape. In your case, each assignment you accept is like adding another 2×4 to your own, personal home. And at this point, we can see that your home at PeopleReady Skilled Trades is really taking shape.
