These are not your father’s auto mechanics. The auto industry finds itself in desperate need of automotive technicians. But these jobs don’t fit the stereotype of the “shade tree mechanic” of old. They require immense tech savvy, and quite a bit of training. They don’t require a four year college degree. Two years of technical school will get you what you need. And the payoff is an almost guaranteed job that could pay in the six figures if you make it to the top of your game. Yes, $100,000 per year jobs that not enough people want.
