Software Expertise vs. Technical Subject Knowledge
If you are the responsible guy for absorbing people in for your company, on what basis you select them? Let's say, in case of a draftsman, do you prefer his knowledge in the CAD softwares to his technical subject knowlege (Like Electrical, Civil, Mechanical) etc.? I have seen so many people being absorbed into companies without knowing the ABCs of computer aided drafting. Moreover whenever you attend an interview as a CAD draftsman, most often you are supposed to design and draft something as per the interviewer's suggestion (May be for the first and last time) and the skills you have aquired in drafting is of little use if you are not well aware of the subject. So what is the future of CAD addicts who spend a lot of time in enriching their own CAD skills...? Are they simply wasting time...?
