Disclosing if you feel more technical or creative minded can help the hiring manager to better understand how you work and the type of projects you may be most efficient in. Talk about your opinion when it comes to your creative or technical mindedness.
"I would consider myself to be more technical minded when it comes to my drafting projects. I am very much into calculations and the logistics rather than the creative side of it. Of course, being creative minded is very helpful in my role as a CAD drafter but I feel that it's the technical side of me that really carries me successfully from project to project."
Take a few minutes to discuss the most difficult or complicated schematic drawing you have had to create in your career as a CAD Drafter. This will allow the hiring manager to understand if you can handle projects of their magnitude.
"In my earlier career I worked for a well known power company and was responsible for drawing hydraulic, pneumatic, lube and P&ID schematics. They were intense projects to work on but I learned a lot and am glad to have the had experience."
When the hiring manager has a strong understanding of your work and project preferences, they can better know where to place you within their organization. Where will you be the best fit? Talk to the hiring manager about your preference when it comes to the types of drafting projects you take on.
"I am happy to perform drafting duties in all areas, however; if I had to choose I would probably say that I prefer Architectural drafting. My post-secondary education was primarily focused on architecture and so that is likely how I formed the preference."
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.
