Looking for work

Put my name & my resume on a website that, dealerships & automotive stores now are starting to use for hiring.

I got an email today.
Tamara,
Got your online application. Unfortunately, with no direct retail automotive experience we will not be of much help to you.

All of our employers require very specific automotive related experience for the jobs we fill.

Thank you for your inquiry


FLIP I cant get a job even cleaning their flipping toilets. I just dont have on the job experience but have life experience. I have been working on my own cars for years.

My dad has about 25 years engineering experience, but only has 2 year degree, so he has been turned down just because of the degree.

What job did you specifically apply for?

Each manager may have a different opinion of what 'experience' is.

If you were looking for a 'mechanics' position, without formal training they may not be able to hire you. Ours are licensed through the state.

Now if you applied for 'oil change tech', (not sure if that's below you or not!) then you may be in a different boat all together. Some of the guys here started out as oil change techs and then started schooling.

Have you considered a sales job? Don't have to have much experience for that. Just learn as you go! If you want to get into sales, PM or email me and I'll do what I can to give you some pointers.

Good luck!

NO I didnt go for a tech or a mech. I know I dont have the training in that.

What I applied for was customer service, Sales rep & the call center

If you want to get into sales, go into the dealership and ask for the General Manager, Used Car Manager or New Car Manager. Ask to speak to them for a few minutes and then dazzle them with your personality.

Selling cars is little about 'cars' and a LOT MORE about people. Go knock 'em dead!

This is true! I routinely enlighten, educate, my salesman about the vehicles I'm looking at. However, I'm no people person, as they are, and would suck at sales. Most consumers will educate themselves about the technical side of things if they are interested, otherwise, all they care about is gadgets, gizmos and the best price.

Here's what I've learned about online resumes and online job applications... Nothing, and I do mean nothing, trumps Chutzpa. I've read your posts, so I know you have it in spades. Let it shine and go face to face with the right people at the places you want to work.

Sometimes hiring managers don't know they want to hire you until you tell them they should and why. Besides, a determined woman is a powerful force, resistance is futile.

This is like Monster.com & careerbuilder.com not a dealership or an auto parts store.

Yep, I understand that.

But I think you should choose the best dealership in the area (the one with the BEST reputation) and go straight in there.

Really. You can do it!!

I dunno about that. I'd WAY rather deal with the no BS down to the facts kinda sales person who doesn't try every trick in the book to get you to buy on impulse or try to screw you royaly...as opposed to the one who SEEMS nice and friendly but is only interested in making the biggest profit they possibly can.

Thats not the real reason trust me that's just what they are saying. The experience is hurting him because with that type of experience he would be a higher pay rate, so they higher someone with less experience and also more then likely out of school so they can pay them a lot less. I know I do it all the time..

If you want to get hired ANYWHERE, you need to somehow meet someone in person and introduce yourself.

DROP OFF your resume in person so that can SEE who you are. IF you are looking for a customer service job, IT DEFINITELY helps if you SHOW THEM in advance who you are. they probably would call you the next day or HIRE YOU ON THE SPOT.

IF YOU BLINDLY just send out resumes, they have NOTHING to work with. THEY NEED TO SEE IN ADVANCE if it looks like you would "fit in" at their work.

you can get hired somewhere. you have to sell yourself. Don't just sit at home waiting for the phone to ring. You can have a PHD AND AN ENGINEERING DEGREE and even those guys don't get any calls. Which is why they use headhunters and placement services.

If after they meet you, they STILL wont hire you, then repeat this same process at 100 DIFFERENT places. IF THEY STILL dont hire you, then you need to find out what is wrong.

good luck. and be advised, there are stacks of job openings for: teachers, lawyers, engineers, doctors, pharmacists, airport security, FEMA, police officers, nurses. TONS OF VERY high paying jobs that no one wants.

If i lost my job today i would go teach math. and still have a cushy job with every summer off.

Jobs EXIST. But they are only available to the people who decide to put more knowledge in their head, beyond a high school diploma.
