What would a typical day look like in an automotive shop?

I'm a high school graduate and I'm currently attending college while also being enrolled in Job Corps. I'm very hands-on and had my sights set on being in a career for an automotive technician for a long time.

This is a great question! I will comment from the perspective of the proving ground garage where I most recently worked. Our team included electrical, general assembly and fabrication technicians and our focus was automotive and military advanced future vehicles. The work varied daily which made it very exciting. A few examples of daily activities: building wiring harness for advanced vehicles, route causing electrical issues on current and advanced concept vehicles, readying vehicles for testing at the proving grounds, fabricating small to very large parts – using numerous types of shop equipment, welding, working with engineers and CAD designers to develop concept vehicles including providing input on designs and concepts, inventing, disassembling and assembling vehicles and components, root causing mechanical issues, engine/chassis build up, general military vehicle and automotive vehicle maintenance, garage safety walks/equipment checks in work areas, and supporting validation / testing activities. Our team was highly skilled and in great demand – it is a great field to go into. Best wishes as you explore your future career.
