HOFFMAN ESTATES, IL – September 28, 2015– Continuing their efforts to help connect high school and college collision students and industry employers, the Collision Repair Education Foundation will be hosting their next collision career fair in the Salt Lake City area on Wednesday, October 21st at Granger High School (West Valley, UT). 300 local high school and college collision students are scheduled to attend this event, distribute resumes, meet with local companies looking to employ them, and be reminded that there is an industry in need of motivated, hard-working entry-level students.
The Larry H. Miller Group is the event’s co-host sponsor and with this event being open to all industry members to participate, those seeking entry-level collision students are encouraged to contact the Education Foundation for sponsorship and participation information. Other industry participants for this career fair include ABRA Auto Body & Glass, Gerber Collision & Glass, LKQ Corporation, and Service King Collision Repair Centers. Sponsorship funds raised through this and other career fairs assist the Collision Repair Education Foundation’s efforts to ensure that collision school programs have the needed tools, equipment, and supplies to graduate qualified and skilled entry-level employees that are ready for industry employment.
Collision Repair Education Foundation Director of Development Brandon Eckenrode noted, “We would like to thank the Larry H. Miller Group for their leading efforts in helping to organize this collision career fair. What is to be noticed about these career fairs is how industry competitors are coming together to show students that they are needed and there are many different career paths a student can take within this industry. The Education Foundation will soon be releasing its’ schedule of 2016 nationwide career fairs and the Salt Lake City event will be another example of how this organization can help transform the industry.”
