The mission of the ASE Industry Education Alliance fits perfectly with HDA Truck Pride’s strategic objective of “recruiting for the industry”.
“The announcement of our partnership is just the first step. Now, the real work begins, as our members engage themselves with the schools by participating in their career fairs, serving on their advisory councils, creating job shadowing and internship opportunities and supporting their need for training. Our members are eager to work with these students and help shape the future of our industry,” says Tina Alread, director of sales and marketing at HDATP.
“We are excited to have HDA Truck Pride as one of our partners. They are the first aftermarket organization in the commercial vehicle sector to work with us.
