Education Foundation to Connect Industry Businesses, Collision Students
April 18, 2013—The Collision Repair Education Foundation will help connect collision repair industry businesses with secondary and post-secondary collision students who are seeking summer employment, the organization announced Thursday.
Collision industry members seeking collision students for summer employment should email the Education Foundation with the position details, location of opportunity and contact person.
The Education Foundation will distribute information to local collision school instructors and interested students will be asked to contact the business directly.
“Collision school programs are starting to conclude their spring semester and with their students on summer break, it’s an opportune time to connect them with local industry businesses in need of entry-level staff,” said Brandon Eckenrode, director of development for the Education Foundation. “What starts off as summer employment could possibly lead to full-time employment after graduation and this will begin to address the issue of the industry’s dire need of entry-level workers. The Education Foundation invites all collision industry businesses to consider participating and email us their employment opportunities as soon as possible so that we can distribute the information to local collision schools and students.”
