I want a Career.



Graduate in 1 month.

BBA in Management with a minor in Automotive Aftermarket Management from Northwood University, Michigan 3.78 GPA

Diploma in Business Administration - Automotive Marketing from Georgian College.. 3.10 GPA

Who want's to hire me?
It's quite possibly the worst time to be getting into the automotive sector, job wise, but maybe one of you need a good worker.

join the club man,
graduating with my degree in applied tech in a week. Had an interview with union gas for an engineering position. There were 30 applicants and I made it to the final 3 and lost it. They made me write multiple tests and sat through 5 hours worth in interviews. In the end I ended up settling for a job at a water treatment facility in Lonon. Not exactly in my field but hey its a job.

Gonna take more than a post on max bimmer to find a job right now.

I finished grad school in September...
Undergrad in finance/economics, MBA, Level 1 CFA

It took me untill last week to secure a relevant analyst position.
I probably applied to 150+ positions in the last 6 months alone, countless interviews, hundreds of hours of due diligence researching companies

30 applicants, try going up against 800! Good attitude though. It is such a challenging environment that you have to be open minded and look for other areas to weather the storm.

I realize this, but it doesn't hurt trying. I believe in using all resources possible, so why not try this method


TNation - I am really not looking toward a dealer for work. I am mainly looking in corporate automotive or outside sales/account management for an aftermarket company. I don't know if I could handle working in the box! I don't have the heart to tell people they are not approved(110). but then again, beggers can't be choosers

youd be surprised about hammers... Even the so called professionals aren't all that great... Of course there are some that are truly amazing but for the most part, it doens't take much to be like the "pros"

sorry man those are awesome diploma's and everything, but right now is probably the worst time ever to get into the automotive industry. It'd be a good idea to just work for a dealership and work your way up, with your certification you should be able to land a decent job. I know for a fact in Calgary with that certification you could be a business manager no problem. Look at places not in the GTA if you want a solid job.

It's a catch-22 with education and work credos. You can have all the brains in the world but if your interpersonal skills are poor that can shut you down very quickly. On the other hand it's an employer's market so they hold all the cards in who they want and how much they wish to pay. I remember when I graduated I worked in a temp position with Manpower temp svcs and did various contract jobs day and night just to get money to pay the bills. Job boards have tons of jobs out there. It's a matter of what you want to do and how much you expect to get paid. Days of MBAs pulling $85k a year right out of school is far and few when the employer knows well what the market is paying given the economic conditions.
