Computer Aided Drafting
I have chosen computer aided drafting as my career, and by the year
2000 I hope
to be working as a CAD operator. Some major concerns about choosing
drafting as my career are: why I chose this career, the advantages,
disadvantages, and the
many statistics such as the average income.
I chose computer aided drafting (or CAD) as my career because of many
One reason I chose this job is because my father works with CAD, and I
about the job that the average Joe wouldn’t. For instance some things I
know are the kinds
of working conditions and the stress involved. Another reason I chose
CAD is because I
enjoy working with computers and designing things. Ever since I was
little I have been
fascinated with computers. I always used to take things apart and see
how they work.

education required, the
high level of growth in the job, and good benefits. One disadvantage is

fifty. Benefits include: paid vacations, health insurance, dental and
and retirement plans. The job outlook is quite good, the number of
drafters need is
expected to grow because of our expanding business world, Although in
operators are at a high risk of being laid off.
I believe CAD to be a good investment as a long term career. I have
advantages, as well as the disadvantages, I have seen drafters at work,
and spoken with
them. I have come to believe that I have made a very educated decision
and intend to
stick with it.
