One of the ways as an auto technician for you to get a new position or to advance at your current dealership is to be the person that everyone wants to work with. This means having a positive attitude: smiling, getting the job done without messing around, and being knowledgeable at your job will serve you well as a valuable member of the team. Think to yourself…”Would I want to work with me?” You don’t need to be friends will all your co-workers, but be friendly at work. You never know who will become your boss one day or an advocate for you at another shop.

Also, make yourself invaluable. Learn a new skill. Do you see a need at the dealership you’re at that could advance your career? Take the initiative and do what it takes to fulfill that role. Management appreciates when employees help them to close gaps in service. Or learn a new skill that’s relevant to you. Do you drive a hybrid? Take the time to become a Certified Hybrid Technician. Love to race cars? Get a High Performance Automotive Technician Certification. Drive a truck your whole life? Then become an ASE Certified Medium/Heavy Truck Technician.

So whether you are looking for a new automotive technician job or to advance at your current employer, it’s important to remember that attitude plays a role in management’s decisions. So, make it easy on them to hire you or advance your career by being that person they want to work with.
