Just a question to anyone reading, but do you think the responsibilites listed below are typical of that of a designer/drafter, or would you think this more in lines of someone with a full Engineering degree, as some of it appears to be project management?
Just looking for comments.... :)

The requirements would definitely take a well seasoned designer to fulfill. Maybe they feel they can't afford an engineer, but a Designer with these qualifications isn't going to be cheap.

Heh...yea - The reason I was asking was that I had looked at this and said "hey, that used to be my job decription at my last company!" - then I did a little digging and found out that it WAS my last company and they are looking again to replace the person who replaced the person who replaced me after I left 2-1/2 years ago :) (follow that?) You are somewhat correct though except that it's not because they can't afford an Engineer, it's that they are bit too "frugle" to do it. ;)
I'm just glad I'm not looking or in need of a job right now, as that would have been a bit embarasing to submit a resume to a company I left! But like I said, I was just curious on what people's thoughts were on the job description vs. who they think could fill it....Guess I'm "well seasoned" :)

I was attempting to be diplomatic. The word cheap jumped in my mind, but my "seasoning" stifled my impulse to use it.

I know the feeling.

It's about what I do, less the forging and stamping. Small company, I wear many hats, wish I got paid for them all.
"Back in the old days" many of these were the engineers job, but they're too busy in Sales now.
