The Auto Care Association is partnering with Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois, to attract college-age students to work for the auto care industry. Auto Care Careers, a program of the Auto Care Association, will participate in an exclusive event created to highlight the industry. The association, in partnership with CARDONE Industries Inc. and Wheaton College, is planning an industry night that will include a meet-and-greet networking session, panel discussion and pizza.
Wheaton College is a top-ranked, academically rigorous liberal arts college located west of Chicago in Wheaton, Illinois. Majors include business, economics, communication and international relations. Students from all academic majors will be invited.
The partnership with Wheaton College is an example of the Auto Care Careers on Campus initiative hosted by the Auto Care Association. The new program partners with universities, colleges and vocational schools to promote the thriving auto care industry as a dynamic place to work. Other on-campus events planned this fall semester include participation at Texas A & M, Grove City College, University of Northwestern Ohio, Ferris State University and the University of North Florida.
The Wheaton College event will be held on Thursday, Sept. 27, starting at 6:30 p.m. on the college’s campus in Wheaton.
Working directly with the educational institution or through an industry company, Auto Care Careers on Campus provides the tools and resources necessary to conduct on-campus events, whether in the classroom or as part of a career fair.
