More than 32,000 student resumes targeting automotive service

S/P2 surpasses 50,000 resumes to help shops source students

Overland Park, Kan.—S/P2 Careers has reached a milestone as it has surpassed 50,000 resumes in its S/P2 Careers system. The S/P2 Careers resume database is fueled by career tech students looking for full-time, part-time and internship opportunities as entry-level technicians.

“The more resumes we get, the more confident we are that these students are eager to make an active start to their careers,” said Kyle Holt, S/P2 president. “When shops, dealerships and employers discover students via S/P2 Careers, they are taking an important step in addressing the industry’s technician shortage.”

Of the students who have posted resumes on S/P2 Careers so far, more than 32,000 are interested in automotive service, 13,000 are interested in collision repair, 13,000 are interested in heavy-duty/diesel, and 14,000 are interested in welding career opportunities.

Shops can search for candidates based on industry segment, geography, high school versus post-secondary, and many other filters. Businesses can reach out to candidates about opportunities at their facility, as well as post jobs that career tech students can apply for.
