A Serious Look at a Career in the Trades

Technicians and advisors are needed in the automotive industry now.

When you think of auto technicians, what sort of visual comes to mind? Is it a mechanic or  “grease monkey” who doesn’t have much of an education and doesn’t earn a competitive wage? 

If so, let’s wipe that proverbial slate clean because it couldn’t be further from the truth! 

Constant evolution and change

The auto industry is constantly changing, evolving and in need of talented, driven, smart and capable individuals (both men AND women), who are eager to learn and execute excellence to join us in the automotive industry! 

Cars today are highly technical sophisticated machines which require highly trained technicians and professionals to work on them. We’ve talked about this repeatedly, only because it’s true… and important.

Take a look at the following questions:

  • Do you love cars?
  • Do you consider yourself tech savvy?
  • Do you like to help others? 
    • Talk with them? 
    • And solve problems?
  • Do you like to work with your hands?
  • Are you ready for a competitive salary?

If you’ve answered “Yes”to any of the questions above, the automotive industry could be a fantastic place for you. 

This industry is actively recruiting people to work on cars, trucks, SUVs, and hybrids. Kandie Jennings-Molloy, owner of Tom’s Automotive Service, started out as a Customer Advisor, developed her career and eventually purchased the business from Tom in 2010. 

Technicians instead of mechanics

Technicians (previously recognized as “grease monkeys” or mechanics) are now viewed as the diagnosticians in the auto industry. Best part is that these positions come without massive student loans! 

The pay is competitive—comparable to high-level tech jobs. The industry is and will always be changing, growing, helping people and constantly evolving! Exciting times are coming quick. 

Get in on it and experience real growth, career development, in work that makes a difference to your neighbors and all who share our roads.
