Do you read any blogs, magazines, or industry related literature? Talk to the hiring manager about your level of knowledge in the company's area of expertise.
"I understand that your industry expertise is in architectural and civil engineering. I have gained this type of industry expertise through reading related blogs and magazines such as ABC and XYZ."
If given the opportunity, where would you make changes? This is an opportunity to share insights with the hiring manager on what you feel would be a valuable change in your current organization. Be careful not to complain or speak poorly of your current company.
"My current company has been very good to me and there is very little that I would change. If given the chance, the one thing that I would suggest to them is that they upgrade their operating systems to allow CAD drafters access to their work from remote locations. Currently, there are no programs accessible on a shared drive."
Walk the hiring manager through your post-secondary experience. Talk about your favorite course work, and be sure to mention any awards or special recognition that you received.
Talk to the hiring manager about where you would like to see yourself in the short term. Do you have any career related course work that you would like to take? Are you looking for a particular job title?
"In the short term, I would like to receive a promotion to Senior Drafter. I have also set a goal to take an advanced level GIS course."
What makes you a stand out candidate, and why? Talk to the hiring manager about why you are the best drafter for them.
"I feel that I am a better drafter than the next person because I have an unmatched attention to detail. I am very picky about my work and put a lot of emphasis on precision and accuracy."
Our interview questions are created by writers, almost all of which, have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.
Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website. Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews. For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.
The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview. We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers. We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples. That is not the purpose of our website.
Drafters use software to convert the designs of engineers and architects into technical drawings and plans. Workers specialize in architectural, civil, electrical, or mechanical drafting and use technical drawings to help design everything from microchips to skyscrapers.
Employment of drafters is projected to show little or no change from 2012 to 2022. Although drafters will continue to work on technical drawings and documents related to the design of buildings, machines, and tools, new software programs are making the work more efficient, thus requiring fewer workers. Competition for jobs is expected to be strong.
