Ed. Foundation Launches Resume Database
May 18, 2016—The Collision Repair Education Foundation announced Tuesday the successful launch of its high school and college online collision student resume database.
The database was built and piloted this spring for high school and college students who are seeking full-time, part-time, or internship work in the industry. More than 200 students submitted resumes and contact information to the database.
“We are very pleased with our initial pilot of the collision student resume database and this will be an ongoing effort at the end of each school semester to gather the contact information for those students seeking industry employment,” said Brandon Eckenrode, Collision Repair Education Foundation director of development. “We will then be sharing this information with our donors as a thank you for the continued support as we work towards assisting collision school programs and their ability to graduate quality, productive, and efficient entry-level staff ready for employment.”
At the end of each semester, students seeking employment will have the opportunity to submit their information to the database. The foundation sees a greater participation of students in the database in the future.
