Shaping the Future of our Industry: Networking Event in MO for Students

The Springfield Chapter of ASA sponsored a networking and panel discussion event at Ozark Technical College in MO to introduce students seeking a career in the automotive service industry to the local independent shop owners and managers.

Local shop owners and managers had the opportunity to make a connection with future technicians that could potentially become employees and discuss the skills they look for in their hiring process.

The panel discussion gave shop owners a chance to talk about their experiences in the industry and answer questions from students entering into the field. These students represent the new generation of automotive service professionals, it is important for current professionals to mentor and guide them in order to strengthen and secure the future of our industry.

Industry professionals, educators, and students were all encouraged to attend.
