SIXTEEN Eaglehawk Secondary College students have had a hands-on experience in the motor industry as part of the Smith Family’s Work Inspiration Program.

The aim of the Bendigo program was to encourage more females to think about entering non-traditional jobs through a two-day workshop.   

As part of the workshop, students were given the opportunity to experience several different Audi automotive jobs, including marketing a specific car, selling the different models and servicing vehicles.

Audi Bendigo dealer principal Phil Palma said the company wanted to emphasise the many opportunities within the industry.

“Whether that be selling, marketing or servicing a car, the opportunities are there and we would love to see female students thinking the sky is the limit,” Mr Palma said.  

“We have really enjoyed having the students and teachers from Eaglehawk Secondary College, and the Audi Foundation with us for the two days and thank them for their enthusiasm and excitement about the automotive industry.”
