    Career Outlook

    Demand for automotive service technicians and mechanics is expected to grow about as fast as the average among all occupations over the 2021-2031 decade, according to the BLS. The number of jobs is expected to undergo little or no change over that period, which will result in losing an estimated 10,600 jobs.
