Q: How much gainful employment work is available in computer drafting for conscious and environmental construction? I have a plentitude of real world experience in mainstream modern construction and engineering and I have a resume that reflects all this. It is my dream to be part of something more conscious. How much steady work is available in this field for someone with my background and experience?
A: (Kelly) It seems to me that the most likely sort of work for you, given your particular talents and experience, would be with an established architectural firm that specializes in green design. There are more of these than you might suspect. One place to start looking would be in the classified listings in magazines like "Natural Home and Garden"...or do a google search on green architects.
