Collision Hub, a networking Web site for the collision repair industry, announced the first in a series of one-hour Microsoft Live Meetings for students and newcomers to the collision repair industry, sponsored by I-CAR.
The first event is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 10, at noon (CST) and will feature I-CAR Director of Field Operations Jeff Peevy. Peevy is responsible for I-CAR classroom and qualification testing, as well as volunteer and instructor programs and strategies.
“We began discussions in the Collision Educators group on Collision Hub, and that launched the Future Leaders Group for students. Our quest was to educate, empower and support students in collision repair programs," Peevy said. "We wanted to teach them about the many different career paths in our industry and offer guidance on how to plan their careers and development."
Each online meeting will feature a different industry leader who is also a member of Collision Hub. These leaders will tell the story of how they began their career in the industry and events leading up to their current position. Students will be able to ask questions and receive expert career advice.
In addition, when the Webinar is over, attendees will have the opportunity to continue networking with the speaker through Collision Hub.
“We wanted to develop an ongoing mentoring and support program for these students and are excited to have I-CAR ‘s assistance. We as leaders can support and encourage them in their education and in their careers," said D.M. Rainwater, director of operations for Collision Hub.
