SCRS launches career center to post positions to recruit qualified personnel
Prosser, Wash.—The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) announced the debut of the SCRS Career Center (www.scrs.com/jobs); a new online resource designed to help recruit qualified entrants into the collision repair industry.
“The shortage of emerging technical staff entering collision repair businesses is one of the greatest challenges facing our industry,” SCRS Chairman Andy Dingman said. “It’s important to SCRS to encourage new entrants in this industry and to help make them aware of the expansive career opportunities that exist for them in our field. Most importantly, it’s a priority for us to connect them with our members’ businesses. We want to do everything possible to make sure that hard-working young technicians find their way to a rewarding career in the industry.”
The SCRS Career Center was created as part of a network that includes the Auto Care Association and SEMA. SCRS has issued notifications to the instructor and educational arms of the collision repair community in preparation for the launch, encouraging instructors to work with students and graduates on resume development, and to learn the search capabilities of the platform.
“Helping raise awareness of the solution was a big part of our launch focus,” added SCRS Education Committee chairman, Kye Yeung. “Whether it’s someone putting their passion into learning the skills at a local vocational school, a high-level competitor competing at the SkillsUSA National Championship, or someone with tenured experience at a shop looking to move or grow into a new position, we want them to know there are plenty of options for them and that there is an industry-specific job board that can help them land the job of their dreams.”
