Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope that your week is off to an awesome start. Today on the Automotive Podcast, I am joined by Rusty from We are talking about being a new Automotive Tech. These shows Rusty and I do are a blast. I hope that you guys enjoy them.

Normally I post the videos with Rusty on Wednesday. But I am still fighting some type of bug or something. So I am taking an evening off, and getting some rest. If you watched yesterday’s Podcast, you will know why I am taking the night off. I don’t get sick that much, but when I do, it kicks my butt for a few days. Don’t forget that every Wednesday is Shop Shots!

Today we discuss:

  • what to expect on your first day
  • What to expect your first week/month/year
  • Ways to get your foot in the door
  • Buying tools
  • Tech Schools
  • Looking and acting the part
  • What NOT to ask a potential employer
  • and more…

As always, your comments and questions are welcome and appreciated. If you have a show topic you would like to see, post that in the comments below, or use the contact me form. Thanks for watching.

One last thing, I am working on audio only versions, once that is live, I will be sure to let you all know.

    Excellent pod cast, thanks for hitting so many nails right on the head. Rusty’s point of cars needing to be repaired here, not overseas is a great one. One topic I wonder about is the new tech that won’t buy any tools beyond his basic set, and attempts to fix everything with a hammer, and a pair of channellocks. The quality of the work, and time spent messing around are both concerns. Keep up the good work!
