to fast-track the meeting of trade school graduates and employers in the San Antonio area.
Dates: March 31, April 1, and April 2, 2023
San Antonio, TX
THE CONDUIT BETWEEN
EDUCATION AND EMPLOYMENT
Newly established “CareerFest” works in conjunction with CarFest, which is a subsidiary of Community of Automotive Professionals (CAP), a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to repairing 25 automotive vehicles for local US Charities. CarFest SA is the largest car-themed charity festival in San Antonio, TX. CareerFest will provide the opportunity for graduating trade school students and employers to come together to network and interview for jobs in the Automotive Industry. Each graduating student will have a portfolio containing their resume, transcripts, letters of reference and personality test results to provide employers with a well-rounded overview of each candidate.
CareerFest is an employment strategy to fast-track the meeting of entry-level Auto Mechanic/Technician graduates with employers in the San Antonio area. Typical job fairs are congested and can be busy events with lines of job seekers waiting to see company representatives in a variety of fields. We launched CareerFest to streamline the interview process and connect ideal entry-level graduates with employers. The structure of CareerFest will aid in screening candidates for existing or future job openings more efficiently and allow ample time for students to connect with hiring shops.
