Architectural Drafter Resume

The job duties of an Architectural Drafter include making detailed scale drawings that later will be used in construction. He or she might be creating building plans for office buildings, theaters, private homes, school buildings and factories. Since the buildings will be built just as they are drawn in these plans, the work of an Architectural Drafter must be clear and accurate. The drafter might have to work together with the architects, designers and engineers to receive sketches, notes or other information and these will be used when making the drafts. The large companies usually employ these people to their research, engineering or development departments.


If you feel like you are up to it, then you should try to get a job like this. Make sure that you include in your resume the education that you received and the prior experience that you have.
