KRA Supports Non-Traditional Career Opportunities for Women

According to the latest Bureau of Labor Statistics’ figures, on a national level,  women comprise less than 8% percent of Automotive Service Technicians and Mechanics, an industry sector where the median wage is $45,240 in Maryland, and the occupational outlook extremely strong.

Recently, supporting a demonstration-grant award to a community partner, KRA’s Work Participation, Placement, and Support Services Program, funded by the Baltimore City Department of Social Services, provided facilities and staff to augment our partner’s recruitment, screening, and referral processes for an Automotive Services Training Program.

Baltimore - We Employ ASE Certified ProfessionalsOne hundred percent of the KRA/Baltimore candidates…almost one-third of whom were women…completed the NCIA training,  graduated with Automotive Technician I, HVAC, and Drive Belt ASE Certifications, and obtained employment with local automotive-service businesses, with one female graduate already promoted to Store Manager.

The KRA/Baltimore team provided true quality customer service, through judicious assessment, career counseling, and decision-making, in matching the right jobseekers with the right opportunities for career success.
