Wael’s Answer

Omar, there are a lot of companies that need people to work on CAD only. In other wards, they are not asking for an engineering degree. The job titles are usual CAD designer or something similar.

Ed’s Answer

Not all graduates follow a career limited to their degree although it is a good place to start. Ask yourself what kind of company you would like to work for and you may find that you can apply to a department that would value your degree. I would not step down to being a CAD designer from a Quantity Surveyor you could slide into business management, accounting, or project management. You may also wish to consider the industry you would be doing quantity surveying for. There is no real equivalent position here in the United States but the disciplines you studied could be applied across a board spectrum of industries and multiple departments. Imagine where you would like to work and apply to what you can see yourself doing and focus on how your skills would enhance your ability to deliver results. This is actually a great time to veer as you don't any vested time in acquiring experience yet, no mater what position you are apply for you are doing so at entry level. You can use your degree to prove ability, accomplishment, perseverance, and self discipline which is really what the employer is looking for since they will train you on how to do what they want you to do. Think about it, if Harvard already knew how to do what Google does, they wouldn't be teaching you what Yahoo did, while a dropout steals their student directory and turns it into Facebook. The world is yours for the taking.
