It’s not often that you take a field trip TO a school, but that’s what some of our Ellsworth team did yesterday! Deer Isle-Stonington High School held a career fair yesterday, and invited some of our employees to speak about automotive career opportunities.
Jared Slauenwhite, Sales Manager at Darling’s Auto Mall; Ryan Wilson, Service Manager at Darling’s Chevrolet; and Amanda Nadeau, Creative Content Specialist at Darling’s Auto Mall spoke to a group of students interested in learning more about the automotive industry, ranging in age from freshman to seniors, about what it’s like to work at Darling’s, what their jobs are like on a day-to-day basis, and what the automotive industry offers for interested students.
We were in good company, alongside other area businesses and organizations who spoke to students, including Maine State Police, Cianbro, Eastern Maine Medical Center, MDI Bio Labs, Maine Maritime Academy, and cosmetology and blacksmithing programs.
We’re proud to be a part of great events like these and be able to help share opportunities with the future leaders of our communities. Thanks to the Deer Isle-Stonington High School team for inviting us to share our work, and to meet the students – we look forward to working with some of these great kids someday!
