Maybe you’ve always wanted to fix things—your curiosity to “look under the hood” has led you to some interesting places (hint: ever take apart an appliance?). Or perhaps you like to work with your hands—building, tinkering, configuring. You’re a maker and creator. Or possibly you’ve always had a fascination with cars and trucks, the ways they work, sound, perform—the whole culture.

Whatever the case, the automotive service industry summons you: the fixers, makers, do-ers and problem-solvers. There’s a whole new world of opportunity for such young minds and talents.
