Automotive Technology Careers

Automotive technicians continue to be in demand in an occupation that provides portable skills which cannot be outsourced overseas. 

More than 16% of service technicians are self-employed, more than twice the proportion for all installation, maintenance and repair occupations. There is usually steady work, even through downturns in the economy.

Automotive technicians work for:

  • Dealerships
  • Retail and wholesale stores selling automotive parts, accessories and supplies
  • Auto repair shops and gas stations
  • Automotive equipment rental and leasing companies
  • Federal, state and local governments
  • Private transportation companies
