Robert’s Answer

I think you already know this answer, but if not, ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Do I enjoy fixing cars?
  2. Am I good at it?
  3. Is this a career that I would like to pursue for the rest of my life?

Robert recommends the following next steps:

If you've answered "yes" to at least two of the above questions, here is some advice that may help you both advance and excel in this field.
As automotives become more specialized as well as more computerized, automotive companies are seeking mechanics who are specialized in their brand of automobile and the specific systems individual car companies use in their vehicles.
To advance in your career, you will find that many schools, especially community colleges, offer a number of low-cost auto repair programs which focus on getting their students certified in a number of skilled areas which auto companies require for those mechanics who fix their brands.
A mechanic with these skills and certifications will find him/herself in an advantageous position when it comes to finding a position in the auto repair field. As they will be in more demand, they will likely receive a higher starting wage and will be in a better position to pick and choose where they work.
