Nearly 40 industry companies will participate in the first-ever SEMA Show Student Career Day, taking place Monday, October 31, from 1:00 p.m.–3:00 p.m., in the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino.
The recent “SEMA Industry Employment Perspective Study” found that 95% of companies in the automotive aftermarket industry will need to hire new employees with specific skills in the next five years. The No. 1 problem, according to the study, is that companies don’t know where to look for the highly skilled employees they will need in the future.
The SEMA Show is here to help. But hurry, space is running out. Join the nearly 40 industry companies that have already committed to participate in the first-ever SEMA Show Student Career Day, taking place Monday, October 31, from 1:00 p.m.–3:00 p.m., in the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino.
Each company will be provided a complimentary table with signage, and students will walk around and talk to different company representatives. The goal is to educate the students about the diversity of career opportunities available in the automotive industry. Companies will want to share what they do, the types of positions for which they typically hire and the skill sets they seek. If actively hiring, SEMA will provide an indicator that can be placed on the company’s sign.
Should an interview opportunity arise, SEMA can assist in scheduling a time and location. For the first-time, SEMA will host a Career Center at the Show that will be located in the Upper North Hall outside N251 (the Members Lounge), where free professional headshots, LinkedIn consultations and the ability to preview jobs and applicants will be offered.
The registration deadline for this all-new special event is Friday, October 7.
Companies can register by emailing SEMA’s Senior Director of Education Zane Clark.
