RssSenior AutoCAD designer/drafter

As a Senior AutoCAD designer/drafter with a significant background as a mechanical technician in R&D, Repair and maintenance, production and manufacturing, I am looking for a position that utilizes my experience, skills and 3 years of college credit. I have held a variety of engineering positions and would hope to find a job that requires cross disciplinary knowledge and innovation in either research or production problem solving. I have more interest in a challenging and satisfying work situation than a particular salary range. My talent is visualizing and conceptualizing in 3D, and I find this element most fulfilling and the major factor in my success as both a designer and technician.
