The 2016 SEMA Student Career Day. The Student Career Day will draw hundreds of high school and college students from across the country and more than 60 SEMA Show exhibitors.
Diamond Bar, California -- September 18, 2017 -- This October, SEMA will host the 2nd annual Student Career Day, bringing together students who are passionate about the industry and SEMA show exhibitors. Held on Monday, October 30th, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Westgate Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, during SEMA, the Student Career Day will draw hundreds of high school and college students from across the country and more than 60 SEMA Show exhibitors.
 
"Student Career Day is unique in that we focus solely on the automotive industry, and bring students who are passionate about the automotive aftermarket," said SEMA Senior Director of Education Zane Clark. "Many times, career fairs are limited to local opportunities and represent a number of industries. At the SEMA Student Career Day, all participating companies are specific to the automotive aftermarket and represent a national footprint. Further, it is held against the backdrop of the SEMA Show, where students get the opportunity to learn more about our industry and experience it first-hand."
 
The first annual Career Day in 2016 included over 40 companies and whopping 650 students, and many were offered jobs after the event.
 
"It was exciting to meet the next generation of our industry and see their enthusiasm for what we do. They were all well-prepared, confident, and educated about our companies," said Ididit's Kimberly Johnson, who participated in last year's inaugural event. "I highly recommend that all SEMA member companies participate in SEMA Career Day."
 
Companies that sign up for Student Career Day to meet the future generation of the automotive aftermarket industry are provided a table, chairs, and basic signage. To register or for more information, email Clark at zanec@sema.org.
