Collision Careers

National Apprenticeship Week- November 13 – 19th

At Parkland, our experience has shown that this is the most crucial time to initiate the search and hiring process for new apprentices who will begin their training in August 2024. We’re here to support you, especially if this is a new process for your business. Timing is crucial, so we hope you can make attending our two upcoming meetings a priority. These meetings are just for collision repair employer partners like you. Your participation will help us help YOU better. Your participation will not only benefit your business but also contribute to the success of your apprentices.
Future Events:
11-27 WILCO Career Center classroom visit with Ford ASSET and D’Orazio Ford
11-29 Rantoul High School / Sheilds Automotive / Ford ASSET (Looking for Collision Repair businesses to join me)
12-7 Normal West High School Career Fair (Tentative – let me know if you want to join me)
12-8 BACC classroom visit with Ford ASSET and Sam Leman
Please let me know if you would like to plan a recruiting event specific to your location or local high school.
