HOFFMAN ESTATES, IL – February 18, 2016 – The Collision Repair Education Foundation, Phoenix I-CAR Committee, and Automotive Service Association (ASA) of Arizona are hosting a high school and college career fair in Phoenix on Saturday, April 23rd. The event will take place at a Phoenix LKQ/Keystone facility and will bring together surrounding area collision and mechanical students interested in meeting industry employers. There are between 200-300 greater Phoenix area students anticipated to attend the event, which is available to all businesses to participate through several sponsorship opportunities.
“This event is a collaborative effort amongst our automotive repair employers and industry partners to bridge the gap between the automotive/mechanical industry, which is desperately seeking qualified employees, and students that are in need of a career in which they have trained for,” said Pam Counts of A&D Auto Body and Phoenix I-CAR Committee Chairperson.
“The career expo is a great way to expose students to the career opportunities that the automotive and collision industry have to offer,” noted Luz Rubio, Automotive Service Association of Arizona Executive Director.
Collision Repair Education Foundation Director of Development Brandon Eckenrode noted, “I would like to thank the efforts of both the Phoenix I-CAR Committee and ASA of Arizona for making this event possible and helping to introduce collision and automotive students to employers. Those Phoenix area companies that are in search of entry-level students should participate in this event as students will have resumes in hand.”
Companies interested in participating in this event are encouraged to contact Phoenix I-CAR Chair Pam Counts at 623-640-2550 or Pam@adautobody.com.
