Automotive Workers’ Tasks

Automotive technicians perform a wide range of duties, from simple maintenance like oil changes to major overhauls like bodywork and engine swaps. Working on cars is a passion for a lot of people, and many can translate that passion into a lucrative, fulfilling career. If you want to go into automotive work, you should decide if you want to specialize in a particular make of cars, a particular vintage, certain high-performance sports or performance cars, or if you just want to help people repair their everyday, regular commuting cars. If you’re good with your hands and have an aptitude for automotive work, you may be able to skip any formal education, provided you have the knowledge and experience required for the job.

Education & Experience

There are some excellent vocational and trade schools that allow you to get your hands dirty working on real or simulated vehicles, and eventually you’ll get a chance to work on actual customers’ cars. Before you choose an automotive school, be sure to do enough research on tuition cost, reliability and reputation, quality of education, and whether they offer certifications recognized by most garages. Fortunately, there are many automotive schools in many towns and cities, and if you have a backyard garage education on automotive repair, you may be able to get jobs based on referrals and word of mouth. Typically, mechanics who work on high-performance or high-end cars will require some sort of formal training.

Your Automotive Resume

After you’ve achieved your automotive education, you should put together an automotive resume. Your automotive resume may not be as nuanced and extensive as a college professor’s curriculum vitae, but it should be well written, grammatically correct, and free of typos. An automotive resume should be in a coherent order, either chronological or subject-based, and it should make sense. You can have a professor or career counselor at your school check out your automotive resume to make sure it has the kind of content that garages are looking for; it should highlight your experience and knowledge, because it’s hard to know how good you are at working on cars without actually seeing you do it.
