Non-Degreed Detail Designers: Reassessing the Engineering Job Market

mechanical engineer trend

For those of you that are unemployed:

If you specialize in something other than what you have done in the past, you can increase the chances of obtaining a job. Do you remember in the 90’s when it was easy to get a job as a detail draftsman? That’s because the jobs were plentiful, and the Mechanical Engineers did not want to manage all the engineering changes. They needed your help to release the drawings.

Now that jobs are not as plentiful, there are a large number of non-degreed guys out of work because the engineers are doing that drawing release package themselves. If you are non-degreed person, you MUST specialize in something other than detailing to obtain employment in this soft economy.

Learn Surfacing or Cabling and you will increase your calls from 1 per month to 4 per week.

About Pro/Cable and routed systems

Pro/Cable is in demand, and there are always 10+ job openings around the country. This is because Engineers (Electrical Engineers, too) have not learned the cabling software, and frankly, they just don’t want to. They want to hire YOU to do it. It’s not as much fun (like doing drawings), but it pays better than ever — it’s IN DEMAND. It is especially beneficial if you take the time to learn the RSD portion of Cable Harness Design.

For Pro/Cable Harness Design, CLICK HERE.
For RSD (now called Creo Schematics), CLICK HERE.

About Pro/Surface

Take your skills a step further and learn surfacing techniques. The more skills you acquire, the better your chances of landing that job you’ve wanted! To see Pro/Surfacing courses, CLICK HERE.
