Auto Sales Careers
There are many other occupations found in automotive businesses, particularly larger ones. These positions may not all be automotive specific, but are none the less employment opportunities in the automotive industry. For example:
- Shuttle Driver – larger companies may employ a driver to ferry customers between the business location and their homes, places of employment, or to a shopping mall or other destination. This is an entry-level position and usually only requires a valid driver’s license, clean abstract, and a good aptitude.
- Bookkeeper – smaller automotive businesses will often hire a bookkeeper to keep track of the business’s financial records and filings. This may be a part-time, work from home position.
- Accountant – Larger businesses may employ a full-time accountant.
- Controller – a larger company with an accounting staff may employ a controller to oversee the accounting department. This is often considered a management position and will require a degree in accounting.
