#Duckumentary - Brian Cardoso

Today we speak with Carpenter, Brian Cardoso!

What did you do before your time at EDA?

Before my time with EDA, I was a NJ State Correctional Police Officer.

What brought you to the construction industry?

I always had a big interest in all branches of carpentry. It started as a hobby, and in 2014 I decided to join the union and turn it into a career.

What are some things that most people don't know about you?

Something that some people might not know about me is that I am very competitive with myself.

If you weren’t in the construction industry, where would you be today?

If I wasn’t in the construction industry, I would be in public service.

If you could work in any other trade or department here at EDA, where would you be?

I wouldn’t want to work in any other trade… but if I could work in any other department within EDA, it would be in Project Management. I would take on that challenge if given the opportunity with EDA.

What is the biggest challenge you've faced in work? How did you overcome it?

There is never a dull moment on the job, and I like to think that every day is a challenge. I overcome these challenges with determination, past experiences, and the help of the EDA field team.

What has been the best part about your experience working with EDA?

The best part about my experience working with EDA has been all the outings that I have been invited to. They have taken me in and showed me great appreciation for my hard work on the field. It’s always a good time and they were great bonding experiences.

What is your favorite EDA value, and why?

My favorite EDA Value is Live Proactively because of the positive and welcoming attitude everyone at EDA has. EDA has changed the construction industry.
