3M Automotive Aftermarket Division, along with the Collision Repair Education Foundation, hosted an event at 3M headquarters designed to spark the hiring of students in the collision repair industry.

At the Cars, Careers and Celebrities event held in the plaza at 3M headquarters, some 30 classic cars were featured along with appearances by famous Wisconsin car builders, the Ring Brothers. It served as a festive backdrop for a career fair where more than a dozen collision repair companies had an opportunity to meet hundreds of students who are studying collision repair in high school or technical colleges.

It is one of roughly 20 career fairs the Collision Repair Education Foundation is hosting around the country to help address the critical shortage of skilled labor in the collision repair industry and to help graduating students find gainful employment and a career path for success. 3M is a partner in all of these events.

“These events are great for students who are graduating in the near future to meet industry employers,” said Dale Ross, U.S. marketing operations manager, 3M Automotive Aftermarket Division. “In addition, these events are great for students just starting out in collision repair as it’s a great motivator for them to stay in the program when they get to see the companies waiting for them after school. It is a tremendous opportunity for them to see the many different career paths in collision repair for students to explore.”
