Car Job Oppurtunities in DFW ?!?!?!?

I am posting this early to just get an idea of things to come. I am enrolled at Wyotech this Janurary and will be taking not only their core automotive training course but i will also be taking a automotive service management class and also a high performance engine building and chassis fabrication class. Its a full 1 year course and I am interested in job oppurtunities in DFW. I have a serious gf going to TCU and would love to be in that area, I have visited her several times and love the area. I also know there is a great community of mustangs and muscle cars down there too. What I am looking for is to just get an idea of how many performance shops and engine building shops there are in DFW and what the demand is like for employees. I'd appreciate all the help I can get from you guys. I have been viewing the board for about a year on and off but just not registered. Love the site and love the DFW community. Thanks guys.

Well I have been at the local BMW dealer here for a year and a half starting from just a porter to now being a customer service manager. I have learned a lot from just being around the atmosphere so even if a start job had to be at a dealership, it wouldn't be a huge change for me. They've even told me that I can come back whenever I want so there is a bit of security there. I am just looking for starter jobs that I can get my foot in the door with while I start down there.

Runninhorn, if you have anymore questions, could you keep them in pm. Thanks

Jeremy

i work in the networking field now. Wish i had never gone. not saying i didn't have a blast while i was there and shortly there after, but never make your hobby your career. I don't even want to work on my own stuff anymore.

Edit: sorry, didn't mean to hijack your thread. carry on.

Well everyone different. I have been in a car related job since I was 14 and I've loved every bit of it. Because like being at BMW. More than half the time I don't even feel I am working. Because I enjoy it so much and I'm around such a great group of guys that love cars as much as I do so we just bullshit around all day and get paid for it. So just because you didn't get everything out of it doesn't mean you shouldn't mix work with hobbies. Just my .02

TTT, Anyone else have some info for me and how the demand is for employees in the performance world. What about a place such as Dallas Mustangs or any kind of place like that to get my foot in the door. Thanks
