I am curious if any of you work in the auto industry. I have trying to find some type of car desk job for an oem or aftermarket supplier. Found lots of those jobs in cali; fired them my resume with no response. I don't get it. I went to a great college and have excellent corporate experience. Still in early in my career, I want a car job. Any advice or input??

Thanks,
Andy

I worked for a company called Pollak for my COOP last quarter. They make sensors and switches for the big three and a few manufacturers oversees. If you're interested in emailed them ur resume let me know.

Where did you go to school btw?

Cool Kevin,

Graduated from RIT in 00 with a Marketing degree and certificate in MIS. Now I work as an analyst for a national retail chain. I have friends who went to BU and BC in your lovely city.

I used to work for Performance Motorwerks here in New Orleans, used to deal with alot of Vipers, Ferrari's, Lambo, etc.. and consulting about mods to alot of high dollar cars. Cool job, just really hard to find. I can tell you you will probably get sick of it after a while though. I just keep it as a hobby now, and help some friends with their race team (autocross/roadrace) on occassion. You get to drive some nice stuff but there are alot of slow sales times around the year and it cuts into your pay.

Kinda surprised no one really cares about this topic. I bet working for an eom could easily be boring and suck just those companies get so big and diversified. Working for a speed shop would be cool, more hands on but less $.

dream jobs I have found:

lifestyle specialist
auto parts analyst
test driver for oem

I just got a job as assistant editor for Scale Auto Enthusiast. Ok, so they are not real cars, just model ones. Does that count?

Yup it counts, coolness. I know Volvo hires people to test its cars. I know Nissan studies hard to indentify the lifestyles of its customers. I know BMW studies how people use their dual sport bikes in order to develop related ridegear.

Most car jobs are in cali, I doubt any companies will relocate me at my level. I should just move there and wing it.

Yeah, most jobs are in Cali, but don't count out Detroit. A lot of the major car magazines are out there (Car and Driver, etc.)

I work at a credit union that was originally created to be just for GM Delco employees back when GM owned it. We still cater to them a bit (I process their payroll deductions) and a large proportion of our members are Delco employees. Does that count?


I'd like to see someone get more remote than that...

Hi

I'm a suspension and chasis developement technician at the TOYOTA PROVING GROUND in Phoenix, AZ. That means I'm a professional test driver for Toyota. We have some openings for technicians and engineers, although for some other departments like vehicle evaluation and brake testing. I'm not with HR (human resources), so I can't promise you anything but I will gladly give you the name and address of where you can send your resume. Also, many other oems have proving grounds in the Phoenix area including Nissan.
