Hello and welcome to the first blog post for CADjobhunter; your first stop for jobs involving CAD/CAM/CAE, 3D and GIS software.
Firstly allow me to introduce myself. My name is Matthew Wells and the founder of CADjobhunter. I have a 3 year background in recruiting within the CAD industry, mainly for Autodesk. However, over the last year, the economy took a turn for the worse and as with many other companies, recruitment was de-prioritised. Subsequently I was made redundant.
Within this role I found that specialised job boards produced a higher ratio of desirable candidates. The only thing missing was a dedicated CAD, 3D and GIS job board.
Since receiving redundancy I have worked with one of Autodesk’s Gold Partners, bluegfx. With the skills and knowledge I have gained working with these companies I have put together the dedicated job board CADjobhunter.
The mission: To be the match.com equivalent to CAD industry users and employers and build a community for those in this industry to come together, share ideas, thoughts and generally brainstorm with one another.
This blog will be updated weekly with news and views from the CAD world, both locally and internationally, careers advice for recruiters and jobseekers alike and ‘how to’ advice.
I welcome all feedback so please feel free to join in the conversation. Any thoughts and ideas for blog posts will be warmly considered. You are also welcome to follow me on Twitter and become a ‘fan’ on my Facebook community page.
