    One of my first jobs was working a lube rack. It's a good place to start. While you are doing this start on your ASE certs. I worked as an automotive tech for about 7 years total before I switched sides and started wrenching on aircraft. Now I am the QA Manager and Mechanic for a small aircraft company. Sweet job...... By the way, No degree.

    good luck, I still haven't found a job. But then again I am not looking for a job outside the field that I want to go into so that cuts down on 95% of the shit out there including desk jockey :D

    I know the difference as well.

    technician=career w/ lots of raises and advancements to look forward to

    cut and boxing pizza at a pizza place=job that pays crap but is fun because of all the hot girls that work there and come in to order pizza. :lol:
