Kicking into High Gear at the Transportation Technology Career Fair

New England Tech’s annual Transportation Technology Career Fair was held on Thursday, March 3, 2016 on the Access Road Campus in Warwick. Over 30 companies attended this year’s event, making it our largest employer turnout to date for the transportation event! A mix of automotive, automotive service management, auto body and marine companies were able to speak with current students and alumni about their businesses and share information about potential job opportunities, all while learning about the kinds of skills a New England Tech graduate brings to the table. For the students and graduates, it was a great opportunity to network and build relationships with prospective employers and learn about the many different paths their careers could lead to. A few representatives were New England Tech alumni themselves; Aaron Beltram (class of ’15) from Bald Hill Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram Kia, Seth Cassidy (class of ’98) from Balise Ford of Cape Cod, and Rick DaSilva (class of ’03) from Speedcraft Volkswagen.
