I've recently decided that I am tired of being a useless bum and want to do something with myself. last spring, I was taking classes toward a hopeful CAD certificate at a community college +/- 50 miles from my house. This semester I decided to be brilliant and not go back there. I want to do something where, after a small amount of time spent doing classes, I can actually get a job in my chosen major. Drafting class was the only class, aside from History and Science, that I was any good at in high school, and it's something that I can stand doing and even actually find a bit fun. I also would like to start looking into 3D graphics, cause I've kinda been fascinated with them ever since I played Lego Island and used AutoDesk Inventor. I also find something appealing about having to have a rediculous computer system with a 6-core processor and 10 gigs of RAM, and running dual or triple moniors on an SLI graphics set up, just because I can. So, anyone do stuff like this? What's it's like? How do you like your job? How much money do you net? How hard is it to get a job in this field?
