The Des Moines Chapter of ASA will be sponsoring a networking and panel discussion event at Des Moines Area Community College to introduce students seeking a career in the automotive service industry to the local independent shop owners, managers and technicians. This will also be a great opportunity for local shop owners and managers to make a connection with future technicians that could potentially become employees and discuss the skills employers look for in their hiring process.

The panel discussion will give 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.

Student will be bringing multiple copies of their resume for distribution.
