OTC is taking the opportunity during Automotive Service Professionals Week to showcase some of our local graduates working in the field. With over 11,000 alumni out there, it is always a thrill to find them still here, working in the city and surrounding suburbs. In the US there are over 224,000 automotive service technicians, with automotive dealerships employing over 200,000 of them. With automotive sales continuing to climb, the demand for skilled technicians will increase as well. Traveling around Cleveland, and the surrounding suburbs we found some of our alumni happy to represent. Jacob Vance (AD-278/2017) is currently working at Ganley Buick GMC in Strongsville, OH. He’s been there a little over a year after working several years for another brand. He enjoys the atmosphere there as well as his co-workers, and likes the dealerships close proximity to home. Vance is a 2014 graduate of Berea/Midpark High School.
