Career Panel

The ASA-Midwest Springfield Chapter started Igniting the Future: Exploring Career Opportunities in the Automotive Industry, which has lead other chapters to establish as well.

The event is a networking and panel discussion to introduce students seeking a career in the automotive service industry to local independent shop owners and managers. This is 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.

The following ASA-Midwest Chapters hold this event:

  • Des Moines – October
  • Kansas City – October
  • Springfield – April
  • St. Louis – April
  • Wichita – October
