I have recently passed the CSWA exam. Exciting thing is I passed in first attempt. Anyways, I am looking forward to get into the field of designing now. What are the best resources to find the job?
Congratulations for CSWA exam completion.
You can search for job in your locality as John told you. But parallel you can work online as a freelancer. You can work as freelancer online for getting a small task or project. Here is the list:
There are plenty of websites on internet, but I found these reliable.
Congratulations - Check your local and regional area businesses and start calling or stopping in..
Yeah !! I have applied Designing job! I hope will hear from them soon ... But, As My last job was as CNC Programmer I think it might affect my next job search in designing
Don't think that your last CNC job will affect your future job. Please take this as a positive approach. I will tell you how. A person who has been in designing from last 10 year has don't have enough designing knowledge that a person working in production line does have. The simple reason is, a person working in design department has just seen the object in 15" inch display monitor. While a person working in actual condition had seen the object in real life. Just keep in mind this,
"Practical knowledge is far far better than knowledge you gain from books"
Solidworks and other 3D softwares are just tool to put your ideas into real life. Without knowledge you can work in design department, but then you will be just a draftsman.
So go ahead with positive approach, and you will have better future for sure.
hi Hardik !! Thanks for all this information. I am considering this as a startup .
Does your school have a placement office?
Do you have a link to your ePortfolio?
Yeah Maybe I should look up in my University Site.
I don't have account in ePortfolio ! what is the significant ?
If you find any answer helpful then you can select correct answer for that post and close this thread.
Okey Hardik !!
Just out of curiosity, may I enquire what your background or expertise is designing wise?
I worked in Research and Development in tractor company in India, 2D, 3D design and modelling were main areas of focus. Anyways, CNC Programmer was my last job here in Canada. So I am again looking for the job in Mechanical Design.
I agree with Hardik Patel , having a hands-on background isn't a bad thing, in fact it's a good thing. In general the best designers are those that have a wide and varied background and have actual insight of how things actually are in the real world, because of prior experiences, compared to what they are on the screen.
