March 2, 2016—In collaboration with the Collision Repair Education Foundation’s efforts to help employ high school and college collision students, S/P2 will donate its “Land That Job: Interview Skills for Automotive Students” course to collision school programs this spring.
The course helps students understand how to prepare before, be professional during, and follow up after their interviews.
"S/P2 trains more than 150,000 students and technicians annually on safety and pollution prevention best practices.We know once students are preparing to enter the workforce, their next hurdle is landing that job," said Kyle Holt, S/P2 president. "Many students can do the job, they just need assistance in presenting themselves professionally in their interview. It's our pleasure to partner with the Education Foundation in preparing collision repair students to start a valuable, long-term career in the industry."
“I would like to thank S/P2 for the generous donation that is meant to help better prepare high school and college collision students for employment within the industry. We consistently hear from the industry that they are looking for motivated, properly trained, and professional entry-level employment candidates and this donation will assist us in working towards that goal. Now more than ever do instructors and students need the industry’s support and we welcome industry companies supporting our initiatives, similar to what S/P2 has done,” said Brandon Eckenrode, director of development for the Collision Repair Education Foundation.
