Collision Careers Platform Earns SEMA Global Media Award

Nov. 17, 2023
Collision Careers stood out for its creative approach in addressing the critical need for skilled professionals in the collision repair sector

I-CAR’s recently launched Collision Careers platform has earned a SEMA Global Media Award, according to a press release.

The title is awarded each year at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas. It is meant to recognize companies that manufacture specialty equipment products, accessories, and related services that have mass appeal to markets outside of the U.S. Almost 3,000 new offerings are voted on by a group of respected international journalists.

Collision Careers was launched this past summer and serves as a neutral platform where industry partners are invited to collaborate to represent the collision repair field. Through engaging content, storytelling, and partnerships with organizations such as the Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF), Collision Careers seeks to attract prospective professionals, students, educators, and those making mid-career changes.

The organization stood out as a contender for the SEMA Global Media Award in its creative branding approach to addressing the industry’s technician shortage. 

“This recognition is a testament to the investment we with CREF are making to support the industry we mutually serve, addressing a huge pain point that impacts the entire industry and the consumer,” said I-CAR CEO and President John Van Alstyne. “It also demonstrates the dedication and passion of our team in promoting the collision repair profession and ensuring a bright future for the industry.”
