What career best fits my strengths and hobbies?
I'm a senior in high school and would like a future career as an auto-mechanic. My two strongest strengths are: I never give up and I am a problem solver. My hobbies are working and playing problem solving games. Given my strengths and hobbies what kind of career best fits me? What other strengths and experience might I need to become an auto-mechanic?

I say this to every person who asks about being a mechanic, make sure that you get your ASE certifications. You will be much better off with them as most shops will be more willing to hire you and willing to pay your more since they know that you know what you are doing and that they can trust your work. Becoming an apprentice first would also be a great thing, that way you can learn from a veteran in the field.

I would also recommend pursing the certifications you need and/or pursuing an apprenticeship to become a qualified mechanic. For example, start looking at which ASE certifications align with the type of mechanic work you're interested in. Your school counselor should be able to direct you to local or online programs to get you started.
Examples would be automotive performance and tuning, car audio and entertainment, paint and bodywork, off-road, and more.
