While it might be a small state, New Hampshire actually has quite a few open automotive technician jobs. The industry is growing rapidly in the Northeast, and you’ll find that you can actually earn a very good salary here. Nationwide, the average auto mechanic salary is roughly $37,000. In New Hampshire, the average salary is actually considerably higher, coming in at $44,740. On top of that, this figure is only the average. There are quite a few jobs in the state that will pay more than this. Of course, you’ll need to get started on the right foot to ensure that you stand the best chance of landing one of those higher paying automotive tech jobs.

Educate yourself before applying for a job

The first step to getting into a lucrative and rewarding job is to go through auto mechanic training. There are many options available here, including national schools like UTI. However, there are also community colleges and technical schools throughout New Hampshire. Some of your available options include the following:

Completing a year-long course at one of these schools will give you the knowledge and skills needed for an entry-level position with a repair shop or dealership. You may also decide to work at a brake and exhaust center, or any number of other related options within the wider industry.

However, don’t think that your education and training are over when you complete your initial course. While that will be enough to get you started, if you really want to earn a higher auto mechanic salary, you’ll need to do more. Earning ASE certifications is the next step. You can begin by taking one or more of the smaller specialty courses offered, and then work your way up to become an ASE-certified master technician. Hirers are happy to pay ASE master technicians a much higher salary due to their significantly greater expertise and knowledge. This will open up not only better paying options, but also new positions with other employers.

For some mechanics, it may be wise to also become dealership certified. This is particularly true if you want to work at a branded dealership in New Hampshire. Many automakers work with their dealer partners to ensure that their technicians are fully trained and educated about their specific systems and technologies, and this can help you earn more at a dealership.

Supplement your income with work as a mobile mechanic

While auto mechanics in New Hampshire can earn a good living, you are best served by planning ahead and getting your education before you start out.

While there are many career options for mechanics, one option you might consider is working with YourMechanic as a mobile mechanic. YourMechanic technicians earn up to $60 an hour and complete all work onsite at the car owner's location. As a mobile mechanic, you control your schedule, set your service area, and serve as your own boss. Learn more and apply.

Jeep Compass - Brake Pads Replacement (Front, Rear) - North Hollywood, California
I made an appointment to have my brake rotors/disc replaced. On the day I scheduled my car services- it ended up raining. Willie checked in, moved my appointment, and continued to communicate through out the day until he was able to come work on my car. He took great car to make the repairs ANNNDDD SAVED ME MONEY by only doing what was necessary (only one of the rotors needed replacing). A blessing.
