Hi folks, I am a skilled mobile auto technician. No jobs these days making life uneasy. Is there any known source searching for mobile auto service where I can put an advert? I only know of craigslist but are there any others I could try?
Please share what you know.
My trade is Automotive/Motor Mechanic/Service
Adviser/Auto Technician with long years of job history. I'm 45 years old and would like to know any information about sponsors from Australia and how I can reach employers in Australia who are willing to give sponsorship for Work Visa 457 and willing to give me employment. Many thanks to all of you.
I am a 22 year old female. I've been interested in auto mechanics for a few years. I've done a little research and studying as well as a few hands-on DIY jobs on my own vehicle. If I wanted to go to school to become an auto technician, where do I start? I don't think I know enough to just jump into a college class but I don't think reading books is going to help me either. Where can I learn more about cars, particularly the engine which fascinates me the most. Any help would be awesome. And no, sexist jokes don't offend me. I will make you a sandwich AND fix your intake manifold.
Hello, I am an auto technician who has passed a few ASE certification tests. I need 2 years of work experience to actually get the certificates... but I need them ASAP to apply for another job. I only have 1.5 years of experience. What are the legal consequences of me forging my service managers signature stating that I have 2 years experience?
I know its wrong but... I need these certs!!! Thank you!
My bf has 3 points on his driving record and just graduated from UTI. He is having trouble finding a job because of his driving record, are there any jobs where his driving record wouldnt matter, or ways to get his points off? He cant do traffic school or anything. His tickets wont be off his record untol late 2012, early 2013 :/ hes an auto technician.
I am currently an MRI technician but am just not into it. I love working on cars but the base pay for a new auto technician is average at best. I am currently making $22 an hour in michigan so it would have to be at least that. Is their any kind of specialties that would pay more? Where would I go to receive the training?
I'm thinking of becoming a automotive technician but not so sure anymore. i know american automakers are hurting but will there still be good business with foreign dealerships and other jobs requiring auto technicians?
From what I understand so far it would be a waste of time for something like HVAC or auto technician because of the lack of hands on experience. But what if I got a technical certification in say Cisco Networking? Or perhaps Pharmacy Technician? Are there online classes that are worth taking, or is it all frowned upon because everyone thinks your mommy and daddy will pay for real college for you?
I am about to get my associates degree in automotive technology (as an auto technician) and I really want to work for Porsche. However I realize it is hard to get a job with porsche with no exotic's experience would working for Volkswagen put me on the fast track to becoming a Porsche technician?
You see them everyday at schools and special programs I think its actually a awesome that a women consideres having that sort of career i even considered it but I discussed it with people and really who hires women as auto technicians wouldnt they just brush them aside because they would rather have a man do that kinda work?
I would love to be either an auto technician at UTI, or become a director/writer/actor from NEScom. I want to be able to afford Ferrari's and Lamborghini's and luxury cars and do something i love. Could an auto technician do that and/or a director?
Penn Foster correspondents school has a course for auto technician. I just don't see how you can learn how to fix vehicles through the mail. So my question is how do I become an auto mechanic and is it even possible? I don't know anything about cars and I am not in love with them either. However I do like making money and saving money and fixing cars seems like I could make money fixing them as well as save money doing my own repairs myself. So is it possible for somebody like me to learn how to work on cars and is there an actual school? Most people I know just kind of picked up many things through trial and error doing it themselves and whatever little bit they learned in auto shop at school. I never took auto shop and have usually paid somebody to do the work. Now I would like to learn myself. I live in Hartford,Wisconsin and was wondering if anyone knows of a school where I could become a mechanic?
Thank you for the info. Would some of these correspondence course at least be enough that I could fix my own vehicles with confidence? I understand having to be an apprentice, I really don't want to be a mechanic but just get enough knowledge and know how to repair my own stuff or my family's so they are paying ridiculous prices when ever something goes wrong.
Dose any one know a good online Auto Technician School? I have come across other school like Penn Forster or Ashworth college but I always end up finding a bunch of bad reviews.
(I would attend a local college but the closest one that offers this program in my area is too far away.)
I'm looking for a job, and though I'm not looking for mechanical jobs (that is, auto technicians), I see a lot of ads for them. I know what ASE means, but I often see 'MSI preferred'. What does it mean?
I was just wondering do you think its a good idea for women to be auto body technicians working on collision and paint repair. Do you think it is to hard for a women to do this job because of so many men that do it?
Is it a good place to learn? Is it worth the money? do they find a job for auto technician after? Did anyone attend it, whats it like there? Please be honest!
I would like to know how to beccome a BMW/Mercedes auto technician I have 1 year of training working at a lube and go to further my career opertunities. what kind of programs can I do to be taught about. BMW/Mercedes cars and who would take a person who is new to mechanics. this is my passion I wont do anything else
I am currently going to Universal Technical Institute and studying to be an auto mechanic but i am starting to think that i also have a big interest in auto body work. I dont want to just waste all the money im spending on school to not pursue auto mechanics at all but i think it wud be really cool if i could do a little of both and still make great money. I was thinking like an auto restoration technician, like restoring old classic cars. Any opinions?
I placed a job offer in the news paper well over a week ago that reads " Auto Technician needed, must have own tools, ASE certification preferred, send resume to P.O. Box 74 then the address and the zip. I have not received the first bit of interest in a good job that pays well. What is wrong with the people today. doesn't anyone even want to work.
Going to graduate high school soon and need some help getting an idea on which careers are in demand (especially in this recession) i know medical and auto technician are some, but is there more?
If so please let me know.
