Collision Repair Education Foundation Preps For Spring 2019 Career Fairs

The Collision Repair Education Foundation is helping connect graduates from automotive programs with employers across the collision repair and automotive industries.

The Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF) is gearing up for 2019 spring career fairs after a successful 2018 of connecting new graduates to transportation industries, including collision repair, automotive services, heavy duty auto, and diesel automotive.

In 2018, CREF entered new partnerships with TechForce Foundation and S/P2. Working with these partners allowed CREF to help high school and college students and graduates prepare for the interviews they dream of getting as a result of the fair, facilitate on-site interviews, and play a more active role in employment presentations.

Each career fair hosts upwards of 400 students and a variety of hiring businesses in the transportation industries.

The Foundation is currently planning career fairs on the following dates next spring:

  • Miami, FL (2/27)
  • Tampa/Orlando, FL (2/28)
  • San Antonio, TX (3/6)
  • Phoenix, AZ (4/6)
  • Atlanta, GA (TBD)
  • Chicago, IL (TBD)
  • Dallas, TX (TBD)
  • Detroit, MI (TBD)
  • Houston, TX (TBD)
  • Northern VA (TBD)
  • Northern and Southern CA (TBD)

CREF will announce additional dates in the new year.
