Auto Body Students attend I-CAR and Collision Repair Job Fair

Auto Body Students attend I-CAR and Collision Repair Job Fair

Gateway Motorsports Park recently hosted a job fair for over 1000 students from Missouri and Illinois interested in turning their passion for cars into rewarding careers. Over 30 employers were in attendance, ready to meet and interview eager automotive enthusiasts. The St. Louis I-CAR Committee and the Collision Repair Education Foundation sponsored the fair and our students attended for the second year in a row.

Gateway hosted the NHRA Midwest National Drag Races during the event, which gave students the opportunity to walk through the pit areas and experience the powerful impact of these high-performance vehicles. Instructor Ken Neuman felt it was an ideal place to bring potential employees and employers together as he said they were “surrounded by automotive nirvana!”

“In our big adult world, we all have to make a living. Our jobs can be a daily grind of drudgery or something we love to do,” said Neuman, “We have been so very fortunate to have opportunities like this become available for our students. These events are for their benefit…we are already looking forward to next year’s event and the continued support from the automotive industry in our area.”
