    For the most part, the world of automotive careers remains dominated by men, but there are plenty of opportunities for women as well as reasons why the automotive field is a good place for women to be. Some sectors of the field are majority women, but even outside this range, cars could simply use more females in the garage, the saleroom floor and behind the wheel.

    Dispatcher jobs are one of the few places currently dominated by women. Perhaps because switchboard and telephone operators have historically been women or because of a tendency for women to be pushed into social, customer service or people-focused jobs, its not uncommon for dispatcher courses to be full of women.

    If women can dispatch vehicles, they can certainly drive them. There is no reason for truck driving or even sitting behind the wheel of a limo to be a male dominated field other than custom. Critics of females in roles like taxi driver point to the risks inherent in working at all hours with strangers, but women already do that in a plethora of jobs from healthcare to food service. Additionally, for women who worry about safety, a female cab driver may even be seen as a positive thing.

    On the other hand, cars have increasingly, at least from an owners side, stopped being a male world. The majority of car owners are now women by a small margin, mostly necessitated by the fact that women as well as men work and require transportation. For many purposes male and female car needs are equivalent, though female car buyers favour smaller and more fuel efficient models.

    One of the challenges faced by female car buyers is the occasionally accurate perception that they are not taken as seriously and with car prices being partially negotiable, face higher car prices than men. For women looking for an auto career this presents an easy opportunity to go into sales. Since the field is currently male dominated, female auto sales college grads can sell themselves as the more women friendly option to what will be over fifty percent of their client base.

    Additionally, garages are starting to open up to women. Long labeled the bastion of he-man misogyny, no professional garage resembled the chauvinistic stereotype anymore. As with the sales floor, female car owners still need to get their cars serviced and sometimes feel like theyre not sure if they can trust their technician. Automotive mechanic training it open to anyone any you may even be able to get special grants for females in trades to help fund your education.

    Regardless of what you pick, if youre a woman, theres never been a better time than now to enter the field.

    Buying car insurance, in comparison to buying a car and completing its legal documentation and registration, is very simple these days. Car insurance is an agreement between the insurance company and the insurance buyer, where the insurance company assures payment for monetary losses due to damage, accidents etc. of the vehicle, for the period the buyer has paid insurance premium. Nowadays, buying an automobile without car insurance is very risky and not advisable. When you begin using your car on the road daily, you are subject to possible accidents that makes you liable to your own life, the passengers in your vehicle and other people on the road. Buying car insurance will not only help you prevent losses but will also keep you free of financial liabilities for a third party damage or injury.

    Nowadays, the internet has become the next best thing for every little purchase you want to make. Car insurance also is one the most fast selling products online because of its ease of access and user-friendly suggestions and explanations. You will receive an extensive number of car insurance options on the internet to choose from, where you can compare and evaluate which insurance premium is suitable for you personally.

    Don’t be tempted to choose the most popular car insurance company brand and get it over with. Take your time and do a personal analysis of which company’s car insurance suits you best. Buying car insurance becomes the easiest option for buyers as it reduces travelling long distances, which is time consuming and tiring. Car insurance is now, like everything else, only a click away from the comfort of your home.

    What you must keep in mind is spending a little time on the internet doing research for which company offers you a good discount on car insurance. It’ll be of great help to you in the long run in reducing any doubts and assuring you of the right decision. Make sure it is affordable by calculating your premium online itself. This will help you make the smart choice. Remember that all this thoroughness is going to be worth it as you will be covering your co-passengers too, once you buy the right car insurance. But don’t forget to keep in mind the car insurance company’s credentials and make sure it has reviews and user testimonials for you to fall back on. Car insurance is made for you to have a safer life.

    Not only does most of the country run on cars, but the world at large relies largely on motor vehicle transportation for both people and cargo. Keeping all of these vehicles running is a big job a job that keeps a huge number of people employed in a vast variety of career fields. These are just a few of the more exciting career options available to those who choose to get into the automotive field.

    Body and Paint Specialist

    For many if not most car owners, looks are pretty much everything. Like any possession that is going to be on public display on a regular basis, a huge number of car owners are very concerned with the aesthetics of their vehicle. The looks of a vehicle often play a large role during the car shopping process, as well as cleaning and maintenance.

    As a Body and Paint Specialist, your job will be to not only repair structural damage that a vehicle may have sustained, but also restore the vehicles visual appeal so it looks at least as good, if not better, than it did originally. For Body and Paint Specialists, taking a sadly damaged vehicle and making it look like new is hugely satisfying.

    Automobile Designer

    If you really want to get into the world of automotive aesthetics, there are few career choices better than automotive design. Unlike other vehicle related careers, becoming an automobile designer requires a thorough interest in and understanding of design in general, requiring a substantial design aspect of your education.

    However, automobile designers also need a strong grasp of mechanics and aerodynamics. This requires a multidisciplinary approach that has a strong emphasis not only on design but also on mechanics. Automobile designers are hugely influential in the world of design.

    Assembly Line Worker

    While on the surface this might not sound like the most exciting of career choices, the role of the assembly line worker has changed significantly over the past few decades. While computers and robots do much of the work, assembly line workers are now often well versed in computers and robotics, as that is often a major facet of the job. As always, being an Assembly Line Worker involves the satisfaction of putting together the vehicles that make the world run.

    Automotive Service Technician

    There is a lot more work that goes into keeping cars on the road than just filling the gas tank. A vast majority of the driving public knows very little about car maintenance and repair. This is where the Automotive Service Technician comes in.

    As an Automotive Service Technician, you will fill the invaluable role of making sure that vehicles continue to run safely and dependably. Like many other auto careers, becoming an Automotive Service Technician begins with the right education.

    Auto insurance is an important industry which spreads costs and risks across all parties so that a person pays an average for his class.

    You can save money by using these tips.

    1. Firstly, see if you can move into a class which pays less. Perhaps you have a safe driver discount, or a good student discount, or are married, or in the military. Ask your current insurance company about these kinds of discounts they may have .

    2. Consider raising your deductibles. Here you have to reason about what you might be comfortable paying in case of an accident.

    3. Lower your limits of liability. Again you have to consider what level is appropriate to cover.

    4. Consider how likely you are to take advantage of a tow option, or extended tow option, and eliminate unnecessary options.

    5. For rental car reimbursement, consider that the average rate is $15-19 per day (for basic transportation), and again you need to assess the likelihood of you being in an accident and how much you might want to pay then as opposed to now (actually, over time in the monthly payments).

    6. Grow older! Getting into a new age bracket, approximately every 5 years, will generally get you a lower cost, although the last major age for reductions is 35.

    7. Analyze and change your commute patterns. The longer your commute, the higher your insurance costs. Try carpooling or public transportation.

    8. Reduce your annual mileage. As above, consider carpooling or using more public transportation. On weekends, do more biking and walking. Eliminate excess trips; make errands more efficient by grouping trips together that are in the same vicinity.

    9. Drive carefully. Keep you accident levels down to zero, if possible. Note that accidents which are not attributable to you will not count against you.

    10. Get competitive rates, Insurance companies love people to stay a long time, but they dont always provide them with the hottest lowest prices. So you need to get new quotes every now and then.

    So with todays technology, the easiest way (and, really, by far the easiest way) is to get quotes online.

    Online Auto Insurance Quotes from – get started today saving money.

    Many small factors determine the actual cost in involved with auto insurance. Paying attention to such details will markedly minimize the expense of insuring your vehicle.

    The law in most places requires of the vehicle driver to carry an auto insurance policy and many people approach it something as something that must be done but preferably avoided. Often then, they go to the same place every year possibly not aware of important savings that are available to them.

    One of the simplest things to do is just to have a look around. It is not that difficult to get a few quotes from a few insurance companies around in order to notice which one provides the best features for the dollar. These days with the wide spread of the Internet such task is made very easy and insurance quotes can be received in few minutes right on ones own personal computer.

    One of the things insurance companies often do in determining the client’s cost of the insurance premium is looking up his or her credit history. So having it improved can obviously save money. Credit management is a whole other topic but briefly here – anyone is entitled to free credit score report on oneself up to once every 12 months. Each of the credit reporting agencies being Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion are obligated by law to comply with such request.

    How knowing the score can be to advantage? Well, each of the positive and negative remarks in the report have expiration date therefore applying for insurance after a negative one expires can by itself lower the insurance premium. Otherwise, obviously, paying the bills on time is the main factor in keeping the score on the high side.

    Also you don’t need to pay for fancy or frequent credit reports basic one is all that is needed. And once we are on that topic – there are some companies around that say they offer a ‘free’ credit report while it is not free at all – the fine print states that an annual ‘membership fee’ needs to be paid in order to obtain that ‘free credit report’. So that is something to certainly be careful about.

    And last but not the least idea for saving on auto insurance premiums has to do with the fact that not all the car models are considered equal by the insurance companies. For instance vehicles that statistically show to be stolen the most will also carry higher insurance cost. And if the particular car parts tend to be more expensive so then will be the insurance.

They trick many forex investors of varying experience levels into buying them since of their promises of overnight riches and fast gains. Anyone who would frown upon forex auto trading either has either never tried it or has been hurt by one of these scammy software.

    The real truth is that there are also more than a few gems out there which live up to their promises and are totally capable of making everyone who uses them some consistent and surefire realistic income.

    30% of all forex investors are at present utilizing this software for a reason, and forex auto trading will keep on becoming more of the norm amongst investors in the succeeding years, although it is implausible that this technology will become known the world over anytime soon.

    First of all, lets see how Company Car Tax works

    If you drive a Company Car, you are liable to pay tax as it is classed as a Benefit In Kind.

    Company Car Tax or Benefit In Kind Tax must be paid on your company car if you, or a member of your family, use it for private use. This would include travelling to and from your place of work. If you drive a company van, the rules are slightly different in that you should not be liable for tax if the only private use is to go between work and home.

    How much Company Car Tax will you have to pay?

    There are a number of things that affect how much Company Car Tax you pay. The Benefit In Kind tax you pay on your Company Car is based on the P11D value of the car (its list price including any extras or options), the CO2 Emissions of the car (the lower the better), the rate you pay tax on your income, and whether your car can run on an alternative fuel.
