Job Outlook

As the population grows, so will the number of motor vehicles. All those new cars and trucks, as well as the old ones, will require maintenance and service. While maintenance can be put off for a short period, car owners are more likely to keep this up even when the economy is poor. This is because most people rely on their vehicles.

Most jobs for mechanics are at repair shops and auto dealerships. The number of jobs at these locations will continue to grow. Faster growth may occur at shops that specialize in oil changes, brake repair, and other minor repairs. The number of jobs for mechanics at fuel stations will continue to decline.
