“The Auto Care Careers on Campus program works to expand the awareness of career opportunities in the automotive aftermarket at the post-secondary school level,” said Courtney Hammer, director, job and career development, Auto Care Association. “We have created relationships with several new schools that are eager to hear about employment opportunities in the industry, so that employers can establish a new pipeline of talent at schools that have been vetted by the Auto Care Association. Bottom line, this is an easy way to connect with new schools and recruit high-quality young people.”
