I want to study engineering at some point. Should I apply for jobs as a CAD operator to get some sort of experience ?
Are companies going to be willing to someone who needs training without experience ?
I was hoping to be able to study at night for a few years.
What do I need to get a job as a CAD operator and get into drafting ?
Civil is the desired discipline ?
I'm 24 and I have a non engineering degree.
Looking for a telecommuting kind of job as a cad operator.
I know how to translate a 2D drawing into 3D and have experience in steel detailing(JIS). Can encode old drawings on tracing paper into electronic files.
I live in IL and am attending school to become a CAD operator. there are a few somewhat large established companies within an hour or so of me that may hire CAD guys, and I was curious to see what some other operators know to be a average starting wage, either hourly or weekly.
I would consider moving to a nearby state like OH or IN or Michigan if the wages are better there for entry CAD operators.
Of course I could call these companies, but I'm looking for real life experiences of someone who's been there to let me know what i can really expect, not just hyped-up promises of college placement guys.
Is work experience defined as the time from my very first job until now? If I am a cad operator, does direct experience define the number of years I have been a drafter? Or is it the time I began specializing in a certain field of drafting? (i.e. electrical, civil, architectural)
If anybody know where, can you tell me? just to work there as draftsman, CAD operator, designer, etc.. or any forms of art. or a foreigner can only have a job in china as english teacher? any insights?
I've started my own cad drafting business & only 2 months into it (so far going what seems like extremely slow) & I'm having a hard time finding customers. Here's my dilema a CAD operator position has opened at a big well-known business and it sounds awesome and something that I could do. I feel like if I try & go for the job then I'm giving up on my business which I don't want to. Working 8-5pm wouldn't leave much time for it . I've always wanted to start my own business but worried that I have already failed. If I go for the job I'm worried that it'll just end up stuck in a routine like I have with so many of my other jobs & end of feeling like I'm in a dead end job. I've always felt as though I've been held back at my other jobs & usually get told "you're just not ready" when I try to work hard & climb the corp. ladder. I don't think this "new" job would be any different. I miss having a paycheck but knew it was going to be like this. Does anyone have any wise words of advice?
My husband tell me that I'm too much of a worrier especially the "what if" thinking and imagine bad results. I've been learning new things in my business but am really letting the hurdles of a new business get to me like finding customers. My biggest thing is what if the business doesn't work out and I don't get another job opportunity like this.
I am from india, I am graduate civil engineer & Experience over 11 yrs in Building constructoin, i am also work as cad operator AUTO-CAD (2-D & 3D -MAX,) I am confusing to choose between this two country,pls answer in proper way of technical basis with detail, Thanks in Advance
My name is hamed khan iam handicaped one leg but i walk comfort my proffesion is civil cad operator in india iam very much interest to work in saudia arabia please give me reply.
please help me.
As of now,i am having my on the job training as autocad operator but i am not satisfied of what i am doing because i think it does not broaden my knowledge.i am just doing standard layouts and it is more on 2D only.I dont have time to explore in other software in drawing.What is important in learning autocad software?
How do you go about training to be one?
I'd like to change careers and am interested in becoming a 911 op, as it seems interesting, I'd be helping people, plus it's a "portable" job. But I don't want to invest time and $ if I'm not going to be good at it. I know technical schools do whatever it takes to get you in there and get your money, so I don't want to go there first. Is there a book or on-line test for aptitude?
Hi there, I just recently graduate but I can't seem to find a job which involves the use of a CAD program called CATIA. Should I get myself certified using the program to boost my chance of getting a job.
I am an Auto CAD Operator and can design 2D (two dimensional) drawings in Auto CAD 2000. I want to do job on net is there any job which can pay for my work at home.
I have been searching endlessly and emailing resumes/ filling apps online and I can't find a way to get into this field. Everything I find requires minimum 2 years experience... I've tried temp services, monster, craigslist... Any CAD Designers have any suggestions or advice on how to get my foot in the door?! (i am college certified as designer/operator by the way)
Or do you think I need to go back to college for a Bachelor Degree or higher in Engineering to get a job doing CAD like Solidwork, Pro/E or Autocad?
I work for a construction/Engineering/manufacturing company. At the moment my job title says I am a CAD Operator. I currently design site layouts as well as compile the works order for the contractor to build the site. I get the site survey, do the drawings and then compile a whole doc pack which tells the contractor all the ins and outs, how to build, where and what to build.
I do not think that my current title says it all.
Any ideas on what it should be?
The field is electrical. He has no qualifications or experience. I've looked up a couple of courses at TAFE NSW and seem to come up with electrical engineering.
Is electrical drafting part of or a sub branch of an electrical engineer? He would like to earn a diploma, eventually an advanced diploma, but what is the name of the diploma relevant to his job? To be accepted into the diploma, you must have a certificate 3 in either Engineering or Drafting Trades. Which is the best option? If he did Engineering 3, will that teach him drafting?
Sorry for the long question, I'm just trying to get my head around this.
Iam a civil draughtsman, iam staying in secunderabad area, tell me how to get freelance or piece work for my drafting skills, iam a very good cad operator
I'm really don't like it, it is ok for design engineer, i want to learn more not on this, now its my 1 year job of being cad operator, by the way i'm an electrical engineer
Im thinking of going into school to get certified for Manufacturing Engineering technology.
The certificate will help me with CAD, lathes, and cnc work( programming and operator)
How is this work ? How much is the pay ?
Is it worth the work and pay ?
If you are a worker or know someone that does this work tell me about it please :)
