The Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF) announced the career fair for Denver, Colo., has been set for April 14, 2016, as the organization continues its efforts to bridge the gap between high school and college collision students and entry-level industry employment.
The event will be taking place at Garmat USA’s corporate office in Englewood, and all industry companies seeking to meet greater Denver-area collision students are invited to participate. More than 200 local collision students have already RSVP’d for the event, and sponsorship funds raised during this and other career events are utilized by the Education Foundation to ensure high schools and colleges are graduating qualified and productive entry-level employees.
“This event is part of the Education Foundation’s fall 2015 and spring 2016 country-wide career fair tour,” said CREF Director of Development Brandon Eckenrode. “We would like to thank Garmat USA for hosting this event and also their support of our Cars, Careers & Celebrities Expo in Chicago. As many industry segments are seeking entry-level collision students to address an aging workforce, we look forward to having many of these companies represented at this event.”
Garmat USA General Manager Johan Huwaert added, “The demand for qualified techs and professionals is growing in this industry, and Garmat USA is honored to be a part of this event by opening our doors to students and prospective employers.”
