CAD Highway/Building Designer


I took drafting in high school. It was all on paper but I liked it and I was good at it so it made sense to take a CAD program at college because you need to have that if you want to make a career of technical drafting. I figured drafting would take me into construction but I much prefer working at my computer to physical work and I only like being outside when it’s nice out. At first I thought I might go into the civil side of it and draft the designs for highway and bridge work but I got interested in building construction at college so I got my first job (and only job so far) with a large general contractor who builds a lot of really interesting special purpose buildings like hospitals. For me that means learning new things for every project and drafting drawings and details for things I’ve never worked with before. I know I need a lot more experience as a drafter but the logical next step in my career will be to take some more courses and become a CAD designer. I wasn’t really aware of the difference between a CAD drafter and designer until I started working here. To me they were sort of the same thing but a designer gets a lot more responsibility than I have. Basically a designer ends up checking my work. They were all drafters once too and all I need is more experience and more knowledge about the whole construction process.
