Hi, My name is Helen, I'm 29 and a CAD operator with approx 4 years experience of 2D sheet metal programmes such as Lantek and drafting software (AutoCAD). I have two issues at the moment. One is that I can't seem to find work at the moment. It seems I need qualifications to back up my experience. I also would ideally like to be a mechanical design engineer. So can anyone suggest what qualification or route would be the best start for me or a good way of getting more work?
