Mentoring, Resumes, and Careers…Helping Students Enter and STAY in Industry

The technician shortage is the #1 challenge the automotive industry faces today. New efforts are being made to increase the number of automotive CTE students, and to improve the transition into industry.  We’ll talk about what industry is looking for in the next generation of technicians, and ways industry and education are teaming up to make that happen. We’ll discuss how S/P2 and ASE are working together to create a Workplace Mentoring system together. We will also talk about the good, the bad, and the ugly resumes students create, how instructors can help improve them, and how we can work together to open students’ eyes to the wide array of automotive career opportunities.
Kyle Holt, President, S/P2
