Hi there - does anyone have suggestions for recruiting electrical solidworks candidates? We have an opening - not sure where to post to find entry level candidates
Thanks Alan - we are based in Colorado (HQ). I will check out the specialist publications...very helpful. I have also found that our (well known) college here in Golden, Colorado - Colorado School of Mines has students learning this program/graduating with this SolidWorks training that I will tap into.
I appreciate your helpful response. Best - Deborah
Thanks for asking. Without trying to sound harsh, this sums up almost everything that is wrong with CAD recruiting.
Describe the work, not the tools!
That is VERY harsh and uncalled for. If you have advice, that is welcome, however. If we don't ask, we do not learn...and your response is not at all helpful.
I did offer advice: describe the work.
Sir, I am not looking to post the position on this forum, I was simply asking if anyone could provide insight on the best places to post these types of positions (i.e. monster.com; careerbuilder, etc). I am looking for any recruitment sites that forum users have successfully found SolidWorks Electrical candidates.
Hi Deborash not sure where you are based.
Not trying to sell anything but just to say I work for a reseller in the UK and we quite often get asked for help by our customers to find candidates and advertise for free on our site for customers, maybe your local reseller knows someone or can help? It just helps spread the net, we also have the benefit that 2 former employees set up CAD recruitment firms!
Other than that i would say specialist publications are a good bet, e.g. develop3d, i guess whatever is popular where you are. the main thing i would say is if you want someone who already knows the software/ similar software you might have to be quite targeted. Other than that i guess just general electrical engineers perhaps there are some places/ publications specialist for them and budget to train them up on electrical, its 2 days for the basic schematics training i think.
I'm not sure how many entry level people you will find who are already on the forums, but there is a Job Posting section under the General space of this user forum.
If you're looking for straight out of school candidates then I would start at the schools themselves. Either 2 or 4 year colleges have co-op and/or placement offices that are always looking for places to get their graduates jobs in order to improve their job placement statistics.
