Times are tough these days. Luckily some software companies are reaching out with programs to help unemployed designers and engineers. Not much is free in this world, and these companies are for sure using this as advertisement and increasing marketed shares, but for the single designer or engineer these programs could be what turns the glass from half empty to half full.
Earlier this year Solidworks introduced there “Solidworks Engineering Stimulus Package”. You can read more about that here
SimuTech Group are currently offering there “lend a hand” program to selected unemployed engineers across North America.
1. What is the cost? It do not get better than this, it is free. You even get training material and a lunch as extra bonus.
2.Where do I fly to? Well, you might not even have to fly, possible within bicycle distance, SimuTech got 9 location across North America, with locations in Atlanta, Chicago, Rochester, Cincinnati, Denver, Seattle, Cleveland, Montreal and Toronto.
3.What programs can I get training in? All of the ANSYS, Fluent and CFX training classes are available.
4.Pick me, Pick me, do I qualify? You will need to be a recently displaced or unemployed engineer, with at least a BS degree in engineering or a related technical field, and SimuTech will determine who qualify (Sound fair, right?, Hey its free!!).
Cool thing is that you will receive a certificate of completion and who knows that might be the thing that makes your resume stand out. I tip my hat for companies like SimuTech who step forward and open there doors.
