Do you want to make more money in your mechanic career? Depending on the type of specialty you’re in, becoming certified can make a big difference in your paycheque. Earning certification from a trade school or obtaining a bachelor’s or associate’s degree in applied sciences or a similar field can also help boost your income as a mechanic in Canada. The more demonstrated experience you have working with machine assembly and disassembly, engine repair, and exhaust systems, the more valuable you become to employers, which can advance your career significantly quicker. With the rise of popularity of electric vehicles, you can also specialize in electric vehicle technology. You should also level up some crucial soft skills, like attention to detail, communication, and leadership.
You can negotiate your salary with your current employer or see what other mechanic jobs are out there for those with your education, expertise, and qualifications. If you’re leaning towards applying for work with a new employer, you’ll need to give them a reason to hire and pay you a higher salary rather than hiring someone at a lower rate. This is where you need to sell yourself by focusing on the certifications, qualifications, and experience that sets you apart and the value you’ll bring to the team. After you’ve given them all you’ve got, it’s time to present your counteroffer. A great opening line could be “Given the value that my qualifications and experience can bring to your company, can we agree on…” then state your desired salary. You can also use this approach when negotiating with your current employer.
