Overview

Never before has an aspiring drafting technician had such a comprehensive resource for learning the skills necessary for career success in the drafting field! The culmination of years of interviews and surveys with top professionals in the industry, The Successful Drafting Technician sets out to address this question: In addition to the knowledge and skills learned in school, what does it take to succeed as a drafting technician in today's hyper-competitive workplace? The collected responses were organized into these 12 essential strategies. Practical and hands-on in its approach, this book goes beyond the basics to teach readers not only how to master their drafting coursework, but also how to pursue and obtain the best job, and how to succeed in the job once they have landed it.
