Do you like cars or other vehicles? You have many options to turn that interest into a career.

You can work with a car manufacturer: designing new vehicle technologies in research and development, designing the most aesthetically pleasing and functional vehicles and parts in engineering, managing the timeline in designing an entire car, or testing a car or its parts for quality. You can also look into the car accessory business.

Or you can go another route and explore alternate uses for cars beyond the traditional vehicle. Car-sharing and car renting have risen in popularity in recent years. If you’d like to ride that trend, consider working in marketing, customer service, or software development (since a lot of these companies have apps and mobile websites for use on the go).

A lot of positions in the car business require bachelor’s degrees in a related field. An interest in cars is a big plus.
