Draft days will allow national automotive, collision repairers and insurance carriers, along with the Fayetteville New Car Dealers’ Association, to visit FTCC and personally observe students performing various repair operations and processes, interact with them and interview them for jobs upon graduation.

Industry executives from over 25 companies (such as Ford, Hendrick Automotive Group, Allstate, NGIC, ABRA Auto Body & Glass, Gerber Collision & Glass and Honda) will attend the two-day event. In addition to interviewing prospective 2018 graduates for jobs, employers will also meet and mingle with first-year students for possible internships.
