HOFFMAN ESTATES, IL – May 24, 2016 – As a follow up to the Collision Repair Education Foundation’s successful spring high school and college collision career fairs that took place in 10 cities, the organization has announced six additional career fairs during the upcoming fall school semester. Each of the spring career fair events averaged over 200 students and provided opportunities for local collision students to meet industry employers, distribute resumes, see product demonstrations, and network with other schools.
Collision Repair Education Foundation Director of Development, Brandon Eckenrode notes, “We look forward to bringing these career fairs to additional markets in the fall and introducing these students to the local industry who are interested in their future. For many of these events we are working close with local industry associations and I-CAR volunteer committees to help communicate to the local industry contacts.”
