Exploring This Job

An excellent way to uncover an aptitude for design and to gain practical experience in using computers is to take a computer graphics or computer-aided design (CAD) course through an art school, high school continuing education program, technical school, or community college. Some community colleges allow high school students to enroll in classes if no comparable course is offered at the high school level. If no formal training is available, teach yourself how to use a popular graphics software or CAD package. Some software firms such as Autodesk allow potential customers to download their software on a trial basis. This would be a good, inexpensive way to try out CAD software.
