By Nikki Paschall, GenNext HD Recruitment Chair
Greetings GenNexters! We’ve had a great summer and beginning of fall and our sights are set on HDAW in January. We’ve been working closely with HDMA to recruit fresh new interns from Northwood University for our week-long HDAW Internship Program.
Last year, we successfully brought 10 students with us and gave them an inside look at the heavy-duty industry. A majority of these students, although Automotive Aftermarket majors, had never considered the heavy-duty industry as a career choice. Upon leaving HDAW, all of them said they were looking at the commercial vehicle aftermarket and four of them have full-time jobs in the industry now!
This year we’re upping the ante by bringing 20 students to HDAW! We can’t wait to see the results of this year’s internship!
