Careers with Cars

Interested in making $50,000 to $100,000? East Bay Chapter of the California Auto Body Association (CAA) and Contra Costa College invite high school and community college students interested in learning more about career opportunities in the collision repair industry to a free workshop.

"Careers with Cars" will be held Saturday, October 14, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Mike's Auto Body, 2260 Via De Mercados in Concord. The first 200 students to attend will receive a free, "Careers with Cars," t-shirt. Attendees will learn about the collision repair industry in a fun environment complete with food, beverages and raffle prizes.

Those registered will experience hands-on workshops in welding, estimating damage, frame straightening and painting, and will hear from experienced body repair technicians, painters, estimators and insurance adjusters who earn $50,000 and more, annually.

"The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a continued 10 percent growth in auto related occupations," said Kathy Mello, co-owner of T.G.I.F. Body Shop, Inc.

"This is an industry seldom impacted by economic downturns; the need for qualified employees in collision repair is very high. Our career fair is designed to provide students with a lucrative option in their search for a career," added Jim Boyle, East Bay Auto Body Association President and owner of Regal Collision in Vallejo, Calif.

For more information and to register for Careers with Cars, please visit, or e-mail, or call (510) 235-7800, ext. 4297.
