HOFFMAN ESTATES, IL – January 26, 2017 – The Collision Repair Education Foundation will kick off their spring career fair schedule on Friday, February 3rd in Des Moines, IA, which will be followed by at least 11 additional scheduled career fair events. To ensure the best student participation possible at these events, the Education Foundation will be partnering with ASE/NATEF who will be inviting their collision and automotive school contacts to the events as well. Through this partnership, when the 2016 career fairs averaged just over 200 students per event, that attendance number is anticipated to double in some markets in 2017 through the inclusion of automotive/ mechanical students.
