More than 100 students had an opportunity to visit with local collision repair professionals, manufacturers, service providers and other employers
Denver—For more than six years, the Colorado CARSTAR store owners and team members have provided support and coaching for Lincoln College of Technology in Denver and they recently participated at the school’s Annual Fall Career Fair on Oct. 20. There were more than 100 students in the collision program who had an opportunity to visit with local collision repair professionals, manufacturers, service providers and other employers.
The Colorado CARSTAR Business Group has been active participants in their program advisory committees, career fairs, as platinum sponsors of its annual car show, guest speakers at its national signing day and through introductory meetings with new students each semester. The group has also shown their support to the school with a CARSTAR-sponsored classroom and various CARSTAR-branded graphics throughout the school.
“There was a tremendous turnout with a great group of excited, engaged students,” said Gunnar Greenemeier, owner of CARSTAR Highland – Denver North and CARSTAR Highland – Denver South. “We had conversations with virtually every student. We ended up walking away with more than 25 resumes of students wanting to work part time and full time. It was an excellent day. It’s so inspiring to support the next generation of collision repair professionals and see them progress through their schoolwork into their careers.”
The Colorado CARSTAR stores include 10 locations along in the metro Denver area and Fort Collins.
Current Lincoln Tech students and graduates have become employed at Colorado CARSTAR stores, helping them grow their careers, and filling a need for entry-level employees.
