HOFFMAN ESTATES, IL – January 25, 2016 – The Collision Repair Education Foundation will be hosting a high school and college collision career fair in Dallas on Thursday, March 24th at the Caliber Collision facility near Dallas Love Field Airport. The career fair will be a continuation of the organizations’ efforts to not only provide support to high school and college collision school programs through industry in-kind and monetary donations but also to connect students with industry employers. Over 200 Dallas area collision students are anticipated to attend the event which will include opportunities for vendors to meet students, distribute resumes, product demonstrations, and more.
This event, in addition to the other career fairs that the Education Foundation are organizing around the country, are open to all industry companies to participate in and meet local high school and college collision students. Funds raised through these events assist the organizations’ ability to provide collision school programs with needed tools, equipment, and supplies for their student’s technical education.
Collision Repair Education Foundation Director of Development Brandon Eckenrode noted, “These career fairs around the country provide us with an incredible opportunity to engage with the local collision students and showcase to them that there is an industry eagerly awaiting their graduation. As students approach spring graduation, I would highly encourage companies to join us in these events. After the Dallas career fair, we have Denver, Seattle, Phoenix, Chicago and Nashville up next this spring.”
Companies interested in participating in this event are encouraged to contact Director of Development Brandon Eckenrode at 847.463.5244 or Brandon.Eckenrode@ed-foundation.org.
