Automotive Industry Workers
Many automotive industry jobs require mechanical skills, so you
should take advantage of any shop programs your high school offers,
such as auto mechanics, electronics, welding, drafting, and
computer programming and design. In the core subject areas,
mathematics, including algebra and geometry, is useful for reading
blueprints and using computer programs that direct machine
functions. Chemistry is useful for workers who need to be familiar
with the properties of metals. English classes are also important
to help you communicate verbally with both supervisors and
coworkers and to read and understand complex instructions.
