Where The Jobs Are…In the Auto Industry…
Over the last couple of years we have heard bad news about the automotive industry and how Foreign automakers are taking over for Domestic and Detroit is finished. And in 2009 both General Motors and Chrysler received “bailouts” from the government and it was clear we were approaching a dire situation.
However now the good news – the automotive industry is hiring again and perhaps faster than other industries. Cars sales are rising and Americans bought over 11.6 million cars & trucks in 2010. And in 2011 it looks like the number will be over 13 million.
In order to keep up with the demand, jobs have also increased 12% and many positions are in the Midwest. However in addition to factory and manufacturing employees, designers are also needed. It is now considered exciting to interview for positions as designers and work on Hybrid cars or other cutting edge designs.
