I'm going to be a senior in high school this year. I've had cad classes since sophomore year, and am Nocti Certified in the use of the autocad program. ( Job ready ) And am wondering how hard///easy it is to find work as an architect, autocad drafter, or something along those lines.
I am thinking of doing autocad because I am interested in drawing.....
I was thinking of pools, buildings or houses but would like to know if autocad drafters are the work horses for architects? or do architecs do the more work by far?
Like, what's the kind of job, I'll get with a degree in ECE (Electrical and Computer Engineering)?
In which filed will I be able to work? What will i require to do? A typical day model? (model of WORK being carried out, no coffee stuff etc...)
After my undergraduate degree in ECE, will i be able to directly to a master in another field or not? Thanks.
I"m Fresh out of college and have very little work experience? I'm an AutoCad Drafter and I'm having a hard time to find a good job
I've been designing joist layouts for residential and commercial applications. This isn't really paying the bills so I've been trying look for something that pays better, maybe using AutoCAD for different things, but I'm not having any luck. I go to Government sites and it seems like no one is looking for anyone with AutoCAD experience. Did I pick the wrong trade?
A few questions actually. First, does it pay very well? When I get out of school I'll have training in civil, architectural/commercial drafting, and AutoCAD. Second, is there typically much travel involved? Finally, is it a field that is in demand with opportunities for advancement?
I want to be an architectural drafter after college, but I can't find a major called Architectural Drafting. Can you help me?
I am a mechanical engineering major at a state university, and I am also out of job. I would like a part-time job that is related to engineering so I can have some work experience after I graduate. I want to work for a big company such as Exxon Mobil. What are some of my options?
Who is the Draftsman & Programmer for AutoCAD ?
What are their different jobs to do in an industry ?
what you should know if you want to be a draftsman in any field whether mechanical, electrical , civil , architecture or plumbing ?
what you should know if you want to be a programmer in any field whether mechanical, electrical , civil , architecture or plumbing ?
Like AutoCAD for example. Is it possible for me to take a few classes and get it or do I need a whole degree for it? Thanks!
I don't understand why this is happening. People are out work, while it's becoming more difficult to find new ones. I was out of work for two years as a drafter with Autocad. I tried looking, and I couldn't find a position in drafting available with CAD program since most only hires engineers. Again, why all of this?
I am currently working as a cad drafter for major construction company in us, i am making about 42k with one year experience. Is there any possible way to move up this career path?
1. I do not have college degree
2. If going back to school is out of question (4 years B.S degree)
thank you for your answers......
I DO NOT mean being an architect. But what educational requirements are necessary to become something along the lines of a residential drafter or building designer?
I have taken AutoCad in college but what other courses should I take? Should I take ProE or Solidworks, and what should I look for in a college or trade school? Thanks for any help
I found a job in drafting. I earned a certificate in Drafting and Design Technology at College and worked with Autocad to correct drawings and create some new ones for the engineer. However, the job only lasted 90 days. If was still working there during 90 days or during a six month contract position, how would I make it become permanent or be hired permanently? Is it likely they will hire me after 90 days if I do very good with Autocad and the drawings?
Its becoming extemely hard to find a CAD Job lately is it a dieing industry?
Now i am working in malaysia.My contract will finish in may 2010.So i plan to go to singapore to find job.
Can i go direct to singapore from malaysia after my contract finish.As soon as my contract finish i apply visit visa and go there and find job.
Is it possible?i want to work with autocad drafter or any position with autocad.can i get this job easily?
Right now I am taking a course in AutoCAD. I want to take courses in CATIA, Solidworks, and maybe Pro-E. I want to use the courses to get into aerospace or engineering since I have a degree in math and not engineering.
I graduated college with a mechanical engineering degree but I could not get a job in mechanical engineering because none of the employers I interviewed with would hire me because I did not have any experience. I ended up getting a job at a bank. I was running out of money and had no choice. I have been at the bank job for several years now and I am feeling that my math and science skills are not being put to good use.
I'm 14, and a skilled CAD drafter, with 4 years experience. Is there anyway I can do freelance drawings or get an internship?
