I just graduated from auto mechanic shool and is finding out that most shops want 5 or more yrs of experience. Where is the best place that I can get started? Able and willing to start anywhere to get sum experience.

Get out while your still young,get an education in another area,keep the skills you have now to restore old cars if it makes you happy. You will NOT be able to make a living. GM master tech 25 years,like Dan said, Ive never seen it worse.

MY suggestion is , get in a dealership as as lube tech, you can go from there, learning is at your discresion,. some have a training program for lubes. I went from lube to master in 5 years. its all you

Ha you are in USA... its the reverse here in the UK... tradesmen are in high demand.. finding it difficult to fill vacancies... Tyre world is actually looking for a young graduate like you...

I have been an ASE-Certified auto service Technician w/over 10 years of experience and I can not find a good job. So try going in to a different field or move to U.k. the people are wonderful,classy, INTELLIGENT and cultured. Too many rednecks in the USA and too many GUNS! Get out while you still can! England rocks !
