If you’re interested in working in the automotive industry, Southeast Community College’s Automotive Career Expo will let you explore many different careers, as well as apply for scholarships!

Numerous automotive businesses will be on site Tuesday, Oct. 16, from 7-9 p.m. at SCC’s Lincoln Campus. There also will be some custom hot rods on display in the automotive class area.  

“We want to showcase all of the automotive career options,” said Barry Smith, chair of the Automotive Technology and Motorcycle, ATV & Personal Watercraft Technology programs in Lincoln. “The idea is to get young people and their parents to see there are good career options that pay well, and you can go far.”

Smith said career options include shop ownership, service writing, automotive technicians, auto part sales, body and paint specialists, auto designers, and many others.

The following businesses will be awarding $1,000 scholarships to enroll in SCC’s Automotive Technology program: Advance Auto Parts, BG Nebraska, inMOTION Auto Care, and Midwest Auto Care Alliance. SCC also will give away two $500 scholarships. There will be close to $1,500 in prizes, including tool sets from Snap-on Tools. The first 75 people who attend will receive free T-shirts.
