Discover what the trends in the industry are and determine whether it makes sense to specialize in some segments, specific areas of auto (examples: hydrogen cars, batteries, auto OS/dashboard, body/color consulting, customizations, flying cars, etc).
Go on Coursera.org and find out if there are open resources about careers related to auto. Also, go on LinkedIn.com next week, type in 'auto engineering' and take a look at what kind of companies (startups or large MNC; hardware or software; engineering, research or applications) are hiring - a potential hint into the near future at least.
Remain optimistic and talk with your parents or teachers.
Additionally, your current school might think of organizing webinars for students interested in certain careers or on the future of work (growing sectors and trends).
