According to Maria Shriver's report on women in the workforce, "For the first time in our history, half of all U.S. workers are women. Mothers are the primary breadwinners or co-breadwinners in nearly two-thirds of American families." (Is the Auto Industry a Woman's Nation? )
But did you know there is a shortage of women seeking education, jobs and careers opportunities in the automotive industry?
Auto Manufacturers, service providers, independent repair shops and car dealerships want to hire more women in management positions, marketing, sales, service advisors, finance managers, parts departments and technicians. Professional Technicians can earn $60,000 or more per year! Service Advisors can earn up to six figures in some major cities.
In an effort to improve the experience for their female employees, Lexus is also offering a new designer line of clothing for its associates. Rather than dress in a cookie-cutter “button-down-and-khakis” uniform, Lexus is teaming with a high-end, classic fashion retailer to provide stylish, sophisticated separates for female sales associates to choose from as part of their work wardrobe. Lexus debuted the upcoming fall collection to a small group of women journalists, showing such pieces as classic sweater sets, a navy-blue wool blazer with white-satin-trimmed collar, and a trendy black peplum top.
