Axalta has announced it will be hosting an automotive career fair at its Customer Experience Center in Concord, N.C., on Thursday, Oct. 18, 2018 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. EDT. The event, co-sponsored by the Collision Repair Education Foundation and the TechForce Foundation, is expected to draw more than 500 high school and college students who are considering automotive industry careers and are interested in meeting with top employers.
“This event is very important to us,” said Troy Weaver, vice president of Axalta North America Refinish. “With a critical labor shortage threatening collision repair, it is important to raise awareness of the exciting opportunities that our industry has to offer. This is true for us and every other company that serves the collision industry.”
Sixteen employers will be on site to recruit at the career fair, including Hendrick Automotive Group, Caliber Collision, Service King, Hertz and Erie Insurance. Students will have the opportunity to meet with these employers and will then tour Axalta’s Customer Experience Center, a state-of-the-art automotive refinish training facility located on the campus of Hendrick Motorsports.
