The CARSTAR Chicagoland Business Group Helps Showcase Careers In Collision Repair At Collision Repair Education Foundation Career Fair In Chicago
March 22, 2022 // Franchising.com // CHICAGO - CARSTAR is an Industry Leadership Circle partner for the Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF), and is working with its regional business groups to showcase careers in collision repair as part of the CREF Career Fairs around the country.
On example is the Chicagoland Business Group, which is continuing its support for the future of the collision repair industry with its ongoing involvement at CREF Career Fairs in Chicago. The most recent, held on Friday, March 11, at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in conjunction with the World of Wheels car show, attracted more than 800 high-school and post-secondary collision repair students, along with more than 30 vendors.
At the Chicagoland Business Group booth, students played “Guess the Estimate” to win prizes and talked with CARSTAR collision repair professionals about opportunities in the field. Each student received a CARSTAR gift bag with ever-popular cell phone pop-sockets, juice and other snacks. The students had a card listing all the vendors and had to get initials from all the vendors’ booths in order to qualify to enter a raffle for one of five automotive toolboxes raffled off by CREF.
“The CREF Career Fair in Chicago provides a great opportunity for students to explore careers in a variety of industries and meet people who are working in those fields today,” said Ron Zappetillo, field performance manager, CARSTAR. “The collision repair industry needs engaged, skilled technicians. Events like this help us build interest in the industry and hopefully inspire the future collision repair professionals.”
