ST. LOUIS, Mo. — The Equipment Dealers Assn. has announced the launch of a new resource for the equipment industry: EDA’s Student Resource Database. The database is a comprehensive guide, accessible via the EDA website and available to anyone interested in pursuing a career in the ag equipment industry. 

The database is primarily used to locate resources to facilitate a student’s education and/or job placement prospects, but may also be used by educators and employers to find local talent. The database contains a state-by-state listing of Technical and Vocational Programs, Scholarships and Job Opportunities as well as a collection of National scholarship offerings.

The database is maintained by EDA staff with the assistance of those who visit and use the site. Students, educators, employers, etc. can also provide EDA with additional resources and opportunities in a given state. EDA welcomes the opportunity to partner with other industry stakeholders in sharing this information with their members. Contact Alex Hoffman for additional information.

The “Job Opportunities” tab is sponsored by EDA’s partner, JobDepotUSA. JobDepotUSA is an industry specific job board that specializes in the industrial equipment, transportation and automotive industries. They are backed by T3 Recruiters, a national leader in specialty recruiting. EDA and JobDepotUSA are offering EDA members a 40% discount on any job posting they place through the board. If a dealer posts a job to JobDepotUSA’s board and hires a veteran, their money is either refunded or donated to a charity serving veterans.
