The CARSTAR Chicagoland Business Group is continuing its support for the future of the collision repair industry with its ongoing sponsorship of Lincoln Technical Vocational College over the past decade. Recently, CARSTAR hosted a booth at the Lincoln Technical Vocational College Career Fair to showcase careers in collision repair.
Some 150 students and 30 vendor sponsors attended the Fall Career Fair event at the Lincoln Tech campus. The CARSTAR Chicagoland Business Group hosted a booth where students played “Guess the Estimate” to win prizes and talked with CARSTAR collision repair professionals about opportunities in the field. Each student received a CARSTAR gift bag with ever-popular cell phone pop-sockets, juice and other snacks.
“The entire faculty sends their heartfelt appreciation to Chicagoland CARSTAR for their continued support,” said Nancy Journet, Director of Career Services.
The CARSTAR Chicagoland Business Group sponsors a classroom at Lincoln Tech, and many of the students who attended the career fair shared their thanks for the classroom support with the CARSTAR team. CARSTAR also provides scholarships for the school, and will be offering $2,000 worth of student scholarships again in 2022. Today, Lincoln Tech graduates are employed at several CARSTAR Chicagoland locations, demonstrating the career-path potential for these young students.
