Skyline College Automotive Department would like to connect automotive students with employers. We are looking for employers who are willing to take a student with limited experience and teach them what it is like to work in a shop and perform quality work in a timely manner.

Our students typically have the knowledge but lack experience and confidence. Our students attend automotive training four days a week: either Monday - Thursday or Tuesday - Friday. We have classes from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM and from 1:30 PM to 6:30 PM.

To inquire about hiring a student fill out the online form.

Note to Employers

We often get calls and emails from employers in June and July who are looking for a graduate student to employ. By this time all of our students are on summer break and most of our graduates have already been working part time for the past 2 - 18 months. Most of them will be going to work full time with their current employer. The best time to find a graduate is sometime between 2 and 18 months before their May graduation date. If you can manage to work with a student part time for a year by the time they graduate they know how you like things done and turn into wonderful employees.

Internship Program

We have an internship program where the students earn college credit while they work for you -- kind of like a try before you buy deal. The student is employed by you for a semester which is typically 3 months. At the end of 3 months you can decide to keep the student or part ways. No harm, no foul. During this time the student will have learning objectives he/she needs to complete while under your employment. To find out more about the internship program, please contact the department.
