Employment Outlook

As a drafter, students may find employment in firms of all sizes. Designers, architects, and engineers all require entry-level and advanced drafters to help produce their drawings. Many drafters are employed by suppliers of architectural equipment. This work might include drawing construction details for a steel fabricator, making layout drawings for a cabinet shop, or designing ductwork for a heating and air-conditioning installer. Many manufacturing companies hire drafters with an architectural background to help draw installation diagrams for instruction booklets or sales catalogs. Drafters are also employed by many government agencies, which range from working in planning, utility, or building departments; survey crews; or other related municipal jobs.
