SEMA Student Career Day Focuses On Job Opportunities And Industry Growth

The Student Career Day will include hundreds of high school and college students from across the country and more than 60 SEMA Show exhibitors.

As the automotive aftermarket industry continues to grow and business demand for qualified employees rises, the second annual Student Career Day will bring SEMA Show exhibitors and students who are passionate about the automotive aftermarket industry together during one of the premier automotive trade shows in the world. Held from 1 to 3 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 30, at the Westgate Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, the Student Career Day will include hundreds of high school and college students from across the country and more than 60 SEMA Show exhibitors.

“Student Career Day is unique in that we focus solely on the automotive industry and bring students who are passionate about the automotive aftermarket,” said Zane Clark, SEMA senior director of education. “Many times, career fairs are limited to local opportunities and represent a number of industries. At the SEMA Student Career Day, all participating companies are specific to the automotive aftermarket and represent a national footprint. Further, it is held against the backdrop of the SEMA Show, where students get the opportunity to learn more about our industry and experience it first-hand.”

The 2016 program included more than 40 companies and 650 students, many of whom were offered jobs from the event.

“It was exciting to meet the next generation of our industry and see their enthusiasm for what we do. They were all well-prepared, confident and educated about our companies,” said ididit’s Kimberly Johnson, who participated in last year’s inaugural event. “I highly recommend that all SEMA member companies participate in SEMA Career Day.”

Companies that sign up for Student Career Day to meet the future generation of the automotive aftermarket industry are provided a table, chairs and basic signage. To register or for more information, email Clark at [email protected].
