If you had the opportunity to sit down and question anyone, or number of individuals at Autodesk, who would they be and what would you ask them? General positions / questions will work.

 

 


Ask Autodesk....OK,...can I get a job?

I'll gladly be a demo jock, travelling wherever. I'm single, kids are grown....Inventor and/or Vault Workgroups.....oh, sorry. That's not what this is all about now is it?  :smileysad:

 

Oh well, feel free to pass along the info though.

Tell me about it, I'm finding that to be the case out in the non-AutoDesk world as well.

 

It's like no one will touch me due to my vast years of experience and knowledge being too costly for them.

But then again, how much is it costing them to NOT employ me or those of us out here with the experience?

Truth.

 

We had the hardest time finding an experienced Mechanical Engineer for our office. Maybe some people would think my boss crazy for hiring someone who is so close to retirement age, but, we need his brains for as long as we can have them.

 

The existing ME (been here for nearly 20 years) is going to be retiring not too long after the new guy, and  I know my boss already dreads trying to fill their experienced shoes.

 

:smileywink: Luckily they had no luck with keeping experienced people in my positition, so they finally got desperate enough to hire a noob into it.

Of course, that was 13 years ago this month, so I guess I'm not a noob anymore. Just a friggin saint. :smileytongue:

I see that attitude in a lot of our Civil consultants. They've dumped most of the experienced Engineers and CAD Techs. They rely on a bunch of younger designers who technically know the work. They know how to follow the rules. But experience is what tells you when to violate the rules or when the rules aren't enough.

 

We had one job where (among many other things) the consultant designer put a pair of catch basins at the point of curvature of the curbs that would be coming out of a side street on to the main street we are rebuilding. That's what is supposed to be done. However, in this case, that was also the high point of the road profile. So all those catch basins would be catching is raindrops and there would be a puddle formed on the side street.

 

You can teach a chimp to drive a car and stop at red lights and go at green. But you can't teach him not to go on green if someone is standing in the middle of the intersection. Because green always means go. I'm not trying to compare anyone to a chimp. But this is a good parable to demonstrate the difference between being able to follow the rules and being able to use experience to make decisions.

 

I now this thread has been a little sidetracked by this. But it's the Break Room so I don't feel too bad about it.
