What kind of jobs are there at car dealerships?
I'm a car enthusiast. I'm graduating from college in 6 weeks with a degree in business administration, a minor in accounting, and a minor in computer science. I have 2.5 years experience working for an I.T. department doing PC troubleshooting. I'm not the kind of car enthusiast who fits the greasy-hand, missing teeth, blue collar profile. So I want another way to be around cars - a car dealership. What kind of finance and accounting positions might be a available at a car dealer? Job turnover? Possiblity of openings? Job Security? Salary? Hours? Any information you can give me? I do NOT want to be a salesman.
