Laval, Quebec -- February 2, 2016 -- The Carrossier ProColor network recently stepped up to help attract the next generation by participating in the Salon Expert à l’emploi, an employment event organized by the students of the Centre d’études professionnelles of Saint-Jérôme.
Students visited the Salon Expert à l’emploi with the aim of finding a job or an internship related to their studies. This year the exhibition hosted over 500 students, some of whom are part of the Auto Body DEP program. During the exhibition, Carrossier ProColor took the opportunity to promote its online job application form by inviting students to register in the central database of candidates. The form can also be used by students seeking an internship to complete their studies.
"For job seekers it is a very useful tool because it enables them to display their candidacy with 155 collision centres across Quebec. The form is available on our website but also on our mobile app,” says Mary Jayn de Villers, Director of Communications and Marketing at Carrossier ProColor. “All the collision centres in our network have access to this database and can refer to it at all times."
Carrossier ProColor puts several tools in place to assist their members in their search for skilled candidates. In addition to the online application form, Carrossier ProColor invites its collision centres to display their job openings in this same section and all jobs are shared on the Carrossier ProColor Facebook page.
"The skilled labour shortage in our industry is a major concern for us and our members who must deal with this reality," says de Villers. "We must be proactive and that starts by being present for students who seek to work in the industry. Being on site at events such as this one allows us to promote the Carrossier ProColor network as well as its career opportunities and demonstrates our commitment to get involved with the next generation."
