SearchIt can be a daunting task to actually sit down and dive into the rabbit hole that is job hunting. So it’s best to make yourself a strategy to use when you begin to scan the Internet for your new perfect position.

1. If your skills and education aren’t cutting the ‘Minimum Experience’ field yet, don’t get discouraged. This is an exciting time that you can take to build up your knowledge base and learn something new. Don’t automatically bypass automotive training programs or work-study opportunities. They may be just the key to getting you that dream job.

2. If you do decide to go the training/work study route but can’t find any listings, hit the pavement. Many car dealerships and companies offer a place where students can complete academic and hands-on auto repair work, you just may have to work a little harder at finding them. You can also look into classes available in your area.

3. You finally have your resume just how you want it. Don’t limit yourself to the Internet for job listings. A lot of auto care shop employers still use the newspaper to advertise job openings. Pick up a paper, it’ll be good for you.

4. Go in for a physical application if possible. It’s the best way to gauge if you’ll like the environment you’ll be working in and to get a real sense of the atmosphere and company culture. It can also save you a lot of time and effort if the place doesn’t meet your standards.

5. Toss a wide net when job hunting on the Internet. You never know when a job you never would have considered may turn out to be your dream job.
