When Tropicana hosted its annual Career Fair, Assured Automotive was one of the many companies in attendance, hoping to bring in new talent. “Assured has been at the Tropicana Career Fair since it started,” said Rocco Aurelio, who handles Business Development at Assured. This year, Assured’s dedication to bringing in these passionate, young individuals was as clear as day, with the company adding three new technicians to their business by the conclusion of the Career Fair.

Aurelio listed off the many benefits of hiring Tropicana students. First, they have experience. Second, they’ve successfully completed the Tropicana Community Service’s Employment Centre’s Pre-Apprenticeship Training Program, which indicates a strong enthusiasm for the industry and a great work ethic.

Hamzah Desai is one of the three former Tropicana students who will be starting his career with Assured. “I’ve been working toward this day for months, and it feels great to know I’ll be working with Assured. I want to work in a professional environment and I can get that with Assured,” said Desai. “This program has prepared us to go out into the world and do the best we can.”

Another technician joining Assured Automotive, Christopher Singhroy, came to the Career Fair specifically prepared for his big interview with Aurelio and his associate Carl Mohammed.

“I already knew I wanted to work for Assured,” said Singhroy. Thanks to his prior-research and dedication, Singhroy got exactly what he came for.

Hamza Abdelnaser is Assured Automotive’s third new hire from this year’s Career Fair. “I’ve been looking forward to this day for a long time,” said Abdelnaser.

Major benefits come along with starting your career at Assured Automotive. “There’s a lot of room for staff to grow,” said Aurelio. New hires at Assured typically start off as detailers, and later advance to preppers, painters, or manage administrative work.

Starting a new career is never easy, but with the opportunities and support Assured Automotive offers its employees, it seems as though Desai, Singhroy and Abdelnaser are on a their way to exciting and fulfilling careers. At the same time, they will feel the pride of working within a company devoted to quality training and supporting its community’s young technicians.
