Collision Repair Education Foundation Launches Successful Pilot of Student Resume Database

The collision student resume database was built and piloted this spring to reach high school and college collision students who are seeking full-time, part-time or internship industry positions.

Collision-Repair-Education-Foundation-logoThe Collision Repair Education Foundation has announced the successful launch of its high school and college online collision student resume database. As many collision students across the country don’t have the ability to attend the Education Foundation’s career fair events, the collision student resume database was built and piloted this spring to reach high school and college collision students who are seeking full-time, part-time or internship industry positions. Over 200 students from around the country submitted their contact and resume information, and the database will be provided to the Education Foundation’s donors for follow-up and employment consideration.

“We are very pleased with our initial pilot of the collision student resume database, and this will be an ongoing effort at the end of each school semester to gather the contact information for those students seeking industry employment,” said Collision Repair Education Foundation Director of Development Brandon Eckenrode. “We will then be sharing this information with our donors as a thank-you for the continued support as we work toward assisting collision school programs and their ability to graduate quality, productive and efficient entry-level staff ready for employment.”

Moving forward, at the end of each fall and spring semester, students seeking industry employment will have the opportunity to submit their information to the database. The Education Foundation will work toward tracking the number of students who are hired by the industry and anticipates greater student participation with the resume database in the future.

Companies looking to gain access to the collision student resume database and join the Education Foundation in supporting high school and college collision school programs should contact Eckenrode at (847) 463-5244 or [email protected].
