Automotive Recruitment Specialists

Automotive Job Finder is the result of an unwavering passion and a belief structure that secures and retains the “Best of the Best ” in qualified candidates, and this is a much more “in-depth” process than any average job board, such as: Indeed, CareerBuilder, Auto Jobs, the list is endless.

What are you as an automotive dealer and automotive HR director seeking in qualified candidates?

The answer is (qualified) driven to succeed and to want to reach a higher level of employment and career opportunities candidate.

For the past 34 years, I have sought out qualified candidates for positions I needed filling immediately but learned my search criteria rarely found the right person or persons to represent my companies. Instead, I found the wrong person/persons representing themselves in a market “only designed” for professionals.

When I founded Automotive Job Finder in 2008, I wanted the “automotive community” to discover true talent at the click of the mouse. Finally: A one recourse automotive site designed to curtail all your wants and needs as a dealer who seeks “true professionals,” seeking a true dealer filling their seats of candidates.

A one recourse automotive venue for “all things automotive.”

As our company reduces the chances of turnover, we offer the following:

  • Prescreened background checks on all prospective employees.
  • We will do all the background and reference checks before reaching out to you to secure your perfect candidate.
  • If they don’t pass the initial dealer specific search results, they are eliminated from the search criteria..
  • Your dealer specific search criteria would eliminate all unwanted members from joining your team.

Susan Marie Bernardi

My name is Susan Marie Bernardi and have worked in the health and wellness field for over 23 years. I am the President of the Jim Bernardi Group and Trustee of Clean Vessels PMA. My work as a Neurolinguistic Brain Coach & Instructor and as a Functional Nutritional Therapist has allowed me to help people in different industries and lifestyles gain better control of their brain nutrition and mental health. Sustaining these two aspects of life is crucial to better choices and creating a healthier home and work environment. Teaching people to do this has been quite rewarding and has proven to be a profitable asset to any company and creates a much more pleasant environment in all aspects of one's daily routine. However, teaching staff of companies how the brain works in marketing and sales has been quite intriguing, to say the least.

Thomas Wiegand

President of Global Sales & Marketing
At the age of 25, Ford Division, Ford Motor Company hired me into their Management Training Platform that became the foundation of my life’s journey in the wholesale, retail, vendor, training, and coaching segments of both Automotive and Recreation Vehicle Dealerships. At the age of 35, I was a leader in Ford’s Specialty Vehicle Segment which included RV and Luxury Van Conversion manufacturing. I loved it! I departed Ford with great love in my heart and founded a Van Conversion manufacturing company supporting Ford, and Ford supporting me. With skilled craftsmen in our business, we represented top-tier specialty equipment manufacturers installing their products at dealerships throughout the Mid-Atlantic States. They were the hay days! I missed the personal interaction of training and coaching within Automotive and RV Dealerships and chose to represent a couple of Training and Coaching companies to offer hands-on improvement strategies and in-dealership coaching. Great fun! When the world locked down we realized an opportunity existed for online video-validating coaching on a global scale that is new, welcoming, and invigorating for all. The future is still young, vibrant, and wide open for ingenuity! We’ll be there!
