CV – A list of mistakes

Venus, Jupiter, and Noctilucent CloudsIf there is a question I get all the time from Students can you look at my CV, so often is to big, full of stuff that the client does not want to know, and all the important bits are hidden away, so todays title of "CV - A list of mistakes" is worth thinking about. This article on Linkedin, by Laszlo Bock is about right, I might add, keep it short, Keep it simple, use a nice clear easy to read type face, your name and contact details are top right on the first page. Two pages max. I link the CV I send to my blog, and the full CV, make use of spell checker, and this comes from the worst speller in history, get some one who can spell to read it over. Do you add a photo, some say yes some categorically say no, I tend to think a passport sized head and shoulder on the top of the first page works. In this day and age, a simple CV is only the start, get your online presence sorted, a simple blog, linkedin, a Google presence, clean up Facebook, Flickr, Google photos, If you feel good about it, make a short video, and post on Youtube, link it to a blog. Get a Skype account and also a google address, you will need it. Work examples, do not send, but link a set of good details, plans elevations, and now a 3D model, and leave them in say three formats, Vectorworks, Autocad, and Revit, Sketchup is also good.I use Dropbox to do this, its free and the public download works, and keep them updated, check weekly and improve, do not put up other peoples work, you will be found out, put a good title block on and be consistent. Colour is not good, except for links, Black type always. If your sending the CV with a letter, choose a good quality paper to print on, I purchased a very expensive hand made A4 paper, but check your printer can handle it. Review your CV for each and every job application, fine tune it, research the practice or company, write to a name, Dear sir is ok, but Dear Professor Scaysbrook, adds a certain intimacy. So many job applications are online, and are via an agency, I hate it, but it's reality, deal with it, get and keep all the information each one wants, if they want a CV, and there is a choice, use PDF, word doc can be altered or miss interpreted by the software. Envelope, so many people forget, a cheap Tesco envelope might do, but a matching envelope does catch the eye, worth the expense. Finally its your future thats a stake, make it a full time job, follow up, keep a note of who you speak to, and that was said, date it. If its an online agency, keep logging in, check for updates, if its an agency that asked you to email follow up, or last phone and talk, I do this always, and I use Skype to do it, it keeps costs down, if its a land line call. Skype interviews are now common, get easy with it, practice, do not rush in, dress like its an interview, make sure they link to your skype name, not your cousin or some guy with the same name. try to do it in a quiet place, if you have to use a public computer, use a ear bud, but do not use your phone, at worst an iPad is ok. get and use only a good wifi, getting cut off, or dealing with a bitty signal is not going to help you, practice, practice practice. Position the device so that it gives a good head and shoulder shot, a good contrasting background and make sure the room your in does not bounce sound, it confuses the audio and make life difficult. Get used to swapping screens if they ask to see sample, be ready and have a pdf loaded, or CAD program with a drawing loaded. Practice, get some one to call, I alway offer to do this with my students, in fact i teach and support by this method, it save time and money, so I use it a lot. Google video calls or hang outs are also becoming popular, again get used to using them.

Architectural Technologist – Summer Solstice

summer-solsticeOver the weekend, we had the longest day, no not the film, but the event that is part of the way the earth rotates about the sun and the effect of the tilt on the seasons and more importantly, the weather. As we progress with our CAD programs and shadow becomes so  much easier to use, well it is on Vectorworks, we should start to understand what and why we celebrate the Summer and Winter Solstice. This web site on NASA is one of the best over all explanations I have seen, and will be an excellent starting point to some research on shadow and its effect on our building. I do a walk about tour of Birmingham looking at the effects of shadow on detailing, and general orientation of the building, and this is my opening presentation.  

Flagyl And Cramping

[caption id="" align="alignright" width="300" caption="AutoCAD (Photo credit: Wikipedia)"]AutoCAD[/caption]

Flagyl And Cramping, I, as many of you might be aware draw with Vectorworks, I have done so for some considerable time, with short intermissions where I worked freelance in practices that used Autocad, this was fine, I got the best of both worlds, I kept up my use of Autocad during the day, and at home I used Vectorworks, but for the past few years I have not used Autocad, simply because I have not done any freelance work in an Autocad office. And here lies the problem, I went to teach some students yesterday, and did not know I needed Autocad, went to load the program and thought, 10mg Flagyl And Cramping, Oooer, what next, luckily I managed to remember enough to get through, 100mg Flagyl And Cramping,


It highlight two problems, one, if you don't keep using a particular program, you  forget, second, 150mg Flagyl And Cramping, Autocad is not cheap, I went onto the Autodesk site to look at the Mac version and saw it was, well very expensive, 50mg Flagyl And Cramping, to much to buy, just to keep up with it, I have the reader version, and an account with Autodesk, but it's practice I need to keep up.


So I am at present limited to watching a series of Autocad tutorials on Youtube, 250mg Flagyl And Cramping, there are loads, but it does not satisfy the need to practice and get used to the command line again. The college have student copies so at least one day a week I can open up and practice, 100mg Flagyl And Cramping, if I have time, perhaps thats all I need, we will see. I have a separate project on my CPD list for Autocad, I think it's time I upped the hours here with some practice and actual drawing time, 1000mg Flagyl And Cramping, perhaps with a project or two.


As an addition to todays blog, I went onto Autodesk, and managed to download a student Mac copy of Autocad, 750mg Flagyl And Cramping, I'm a lecturer at Gloucester College so qualify for a free download, nice one Autodesk.


Don’t forget, I will host a tech hangout every Friday at 3 pm, call in to chat, moan, Flagyl And Cramping usa,find out something, anything to do with Architectural Technology. follow me on Google + “+stevescaysbrook”

Colchicine Major

 

[caption id="" align="alignright" width="105" caption="Image via CrunchBase"]Image representing Skype as depicted in CrunchBase Colchicine Major, [/caption]

Yesterday, I just did not have time to write a blog, usually if I know this to be the case, I will post date a blog, but yesterday, I thought I had time in the morning to write, but as lady luck would have it, I had other work to sort before I went out to spend the day with a client installing Vectorworks Dropbox and Skype on a new Mac., together with a working copy of a large Arboretum Vectorworks file.

This was not a simple hand over of a single Vectorworks file, we have had problems with shifting design layers, and I'll blog later on this specific point, 20mg Colchicine Major, so we have desided to work group reference a series of surveys that don't normally require any more drawing work, that are there for reference only. 40mg Colchicine Major, We are also setting up a series of print files that are also work group referenced to all the files, that the gardening staff can use,

But it's the simple use of Dropbox and Skype that wowed the client, no longer does he have to worry about things he just Skypes me, Colchicine Major uk, and shares his screen to show me wehat he wants, or needs help with.or needs certain areas altering, Colchicine Major canada, because I can do it real time all he has to do is refresh the screen. Even the very large photo stock now being generated will be shared this way,, all the client has to do is load and geolocated photos to a specific Dropbox folder, Colchicine Major india, we see them and add links to the Vectorworks files.

So there you have it, Colchicine Major paypal, a long day, with only a single pint and excellent beef and ail pie to keep me going, plus endless coffee.

Zemanta, Colchicine Major us, the program I use to link previous blogs and outside links has just been updated with the ability to add photos, so each link has it's own phto, Colchicine Major australia, not sure about this, does it take up to much room, I wil review it over the next few blogs and let you know. But thinking about CPD, 250mg Colchicine Major, there is a little here, it's all about servicing your client, Colchicine Major overseas, making sure he is happy, and using the best communication means out there to add quality to your relatinship with him, or her.

Retin A Strenghts

[caption id="" align="alignright" width="164" caption="3D Modeling in Vectorworks 2009: Book Cover Art (Photo credit: Vectorworks)"]3D Modeling in Vectorworks 2009: Book Cover Art Retin A Strenghts, [/caption]

Yesterday, I had a long Skype chat with my busness partner, re a problem we had with the data attached to a large map, it was getting corrupt, the question is how do we repair it, Simple answer to any Vectorworks problem like this is to export it to an older file and the reimport it back into the newer version, in this case 2012.

One other way we thought of was to create a brand new file, with no clutter, and import the required Design, Retin A Strenghts paypal, and CLass layers via the import feature on create new design of class, this we have done and I must admit its cleaned it up no end, we had collected a lot of Symbols with data and the like, and since the rebuild these are no longer there. Unfortunatly the import would not bring in the Sheet viewports, 200mg Retin A Strenghts, I can't understand why, so I had to rebuild these, a bit of a pain, Retin A Strenghts australia, but again it served to make me think about the layout and the information we are trying to send out, plus the sheet numbering and drawing titles.

We also looked at the purge command to correct any items, again we tried this, but on reflection we thought this was a little to draconian and did not use it, Retin A Strenghts usa.

Has it cured the problem, Not a chance, we did some tests with our large files and it was still a problems, Retin A Strenghts canada, so back to the drawing board. It took me the best part of two hours to do this, plus the hour or so talking about it, with a map thats 2.2mb smaller, but still has a bug, Retin A Strenghts.

Should Nemetschek make a better repair script, I think so, the bigger the file the more that can go wrong with it, I would like to be able to repair a file, Retin A Strenghts japan, with something like Purge, but with a little more in the way of data integrity, rather than just removal of unused layers symbols or classes. 100mg Retin A Strenghts, I await the Vectorscript programers to come up with a neat little plugin.

As we all use, well most of us, CAD this seems to be a continued discussion point across many different CAD packages, not just Vectorworks, 750mg Retin A Strenghts, when I was working on an Autocad job, we continually had to purge a file before we sent it out. And if your saying this is not CPD, Retin A Strenghts overseas, then think again, this is a day to day issue that affects us all at some stage, so learning about it and ways to correct and repair a CAD file is certainly a transferable asset to any technologist.

Erythromycin Sigma

[caption id="" align="alignright" width="240" caption="BIM vectorworkout (Photo credit: Scays)"]BIM vectorworkout[/caption]

I recently found a link to Northumbria University regarding their BIM Academy Erythromycin Sigma, , a nice site with some interesting links and a rather useful diary of events, whuich includes their own conference on BIM between Wednesday 5 and Friday 7 September 2012, the call for papers is current and entries should be in for Friday 9 March 2012. I must admit to being seriously tempted to putting a paper in for the small to mediam user of BIM, I shall give it serious though over the weekend.

Just about every paper or magazine to do with Architecture, or construction has BIM as a headline or has a large and I mean large article on the subject somewhere within the content, Erythromycin Sigma coupon. Agreed, for large projects its masive and the savings by linking live realtime information from the drawing side to the client and contractor and the consultants will make major savings, but, 50mg Erythromycin Sigma, and here is the but, all have to be on the same hymn sheet, the link between must be coherent, it's no good, one being on Vectorworks and the rest being on Autocad, Erythromycin Sigma mexico, it just will not work. So hence the major push from the big CAD companies to take them onboard. almost forcing the others, Erythromycin Sigma overseas, particularly on large projects to comply, gone then is the need for any restraint on the CAD companies to hold prices down if they can get the lead Architect on board, the rest will have to follow, unless their is computability, and this is not so between the majors, 750mg Erythromycin Sigma.

But what about the small guy, designing extensions and small works,  is BIM applicable, 50mg Erythromycin Sigma, of course, but who is the BIM aimed at, the client or the contractor, both could benefit, the client from thermal and volume info and general construction info, 150mg Erythromycin Sigma, the contractor from area, volume, material list, 750mg Erythromycin Sigma, counts etc. Back to the Northumbria BIM Academy, Erythromycin Sigma uk, I suspect that it will major on large collaborative projects and thats fime, but it should include some if not just one small project presentation, perhaps that wil be me, Erythromycin Sigma japan, we will see.

5mcg Cytomel Equals Synthroid

[caption id="" align="alignright" width="240" caption="Image by Scays via Flickr"]Rendered view 1[/caption]

After a long week keeping up with things I have finaly sat down to review the Vectorworks Essentials Tutorial Manual by Jonathan Pickup 5mcg Cytomel Equals Synthroid, , as I mentioned before, this book is one that should be read. It does not matter if your a new Vectorworks user or a seasoned pro, do not and I repeat, DO NOT SKIM, so many times I have read through Jons excellent manuals and come to a bit I thought I new all about, 150mg 5mcg Cytomel Equals Synthroid, and skipped it. Only to ring Jon way later to ask him how to do something and his first reply is "it's in the manual", or in other words I have skimmed that section. So read it all.

Although the manual is set out into 5 distinct sections I think that the first 3 are what I call the essential reading overview. Chapters 1, 2 & 3 are where Jon looks at the program and the basic way it works, 5mcg Cytomel Equals Synthroid. Chapters 1 and 2 are the layout and feel of the screen realestate, 5mcg Cytomel Equals Synthroid mexico, and what each of the different pallets consist of and do,

Chapter three then goes into organising information, and this is again required reading because in it, Jon set out how Vectorworks differs from all other programs in the way design layers are used together with viewports, 30mg 5mcg Cytomel Equals Synthroid, again an excellent tutorial and loads of pictures and Video to peruse. and it's one very one should read, time and time again, it's an essential read., as it's here Jon picks up on the basic 3D concept and BIM.

Chapter 4 is a catch up chapter with an exercise showing how something so simple as a bracket can be made into a 3D unti. My advise is try the written text first, 250mg 5mcg Cytomel Equals Synthroid, then use the video.

The second major part, chapter 5 and onwards is were Jon pulls it all together and demos so much of what you should have learned and adds more concepts such as the wall tool and inserting symbols such as windows and doors, and finishes off the section with a little intro into BIM with worksheets (Vectorworks Spreadsheets), 1000mg 5mcg Cytomel Equals Synthroid, plus general drawing techniques. 5mcg Cytomel Equals Synthroid, This is 3D almost in it's entirety, and quite rightly so, I know I keep on about 2D, but BIM to be used properly on larger more complex projects, then 3D is a must.

Jon makes use of three distinct types of media, written text, short and to the point instructions on the use of Vectorworks, screen grabs of the point he is making and best of all video, which shows just what he is describing, 500mg 5mcg Cytomel Equals Synthroid, which come in the PDF version of the book via a disk at the back of the book, and are accessed via the movie symbol. seen dotted about the book.

Experienced users of Vectorworks should not think that this book is not for them, 20mg 5mcg Cytomel Equals Synthroid, Vectorworks has changed over the last few issues, with the stepping up of BIM, and 3D use. I can highly recommend this book to any beginner of Vectorworks CAD, its essential reading, and lays the way open for the more advanced Architect and 3D tutorial books which I shall review in detail later, 200mg 5mcg Cytomel Equals Synthroid. More experienced users should also read this book, it wil bring you back on path with the changes in Vectorworks and perhaps highlite areas where you should really look into, 5mcg Cytomel Equals Synthroid.

If you can't get a copy from your own dealer, go to the Nemetschek site and order or please contact me I am now a Vectorworks dealer and can supply any number, especially the UK users. To come clean, 50mg 5mcg Cytomel Equals Synthroid, I was sent these books free, to review, but had I not liked them I would have reviewd them as such, but in all honesty I could not, they are excellent and well worth the expenditure. The link above to the Nemetschek site will also have the other excellent tutorial books by other others such as Kevin Lee Allen's just released  Entertainment and Lighting Design with Vectorworks Spotlight.

As for CPD, 5mcg Cytomel Equals Synthroid australia, well there is a gold mine here, you could easily add 3 or 4 hours just reading through with some basic practice. The picture is again one of Jon's online practice session models.I did make other shots of the books on my desk, but Flickr was to slow in linking them to Zemanta so Jon's model came to the rescue.

This morning, I received a Linkedin note telling me that Jonathan Stoppi a lecturer in Vectorworks in the USA has left some lecture notes online,  they are excellent, you should see the comments on the linkedin site. 

They are clear and concise detailed instructions on using Vectorworks 2011 and for the most part below that issue date. I particularly like the cornice detail and the shed, Zithromax Diaper Rash japan, 750mg Zithromax Diaper Rash, I also like the idea of getting 3D symbols from the Sketchup  Warehouse, I think I might look at that in more dtail and do a small video, Zithromax Diaper Rash canada. Zithromax Diaper Rash usa, I can't praise this action from Jonathan Stoppi, I hope you pop into the site and have a look at thes excellent notes or just visit the Vectorworks Cad Software group in Linkedin

Just were do you fit in this time line of Autocad releases Naturally Occurring Colchicine, , I must admit, that despite my use and love of Vectorworks, I have had to use Autocad, especially when I do freelance work, and the practice is Autocad orientated, Its also interesting to see the way the Mac has come, gone and come back.

No CPD, 250mg Naturally Occurring Colchicine, 40mg Naturally Occurring Colchicine, just interesting. but I like this site, Naturally Occurring Colchicine usa, 20mg Naturally Occurring Colchicine, there are some interesting stories, such as the human nest, 50mg Naturally Occurring Colchicine, 1000mg Naturally Occurring Colchicine, an article on tree houses, just excellent, Naturally Occurring Colchicine india, Naturally Occurring Colchicine ebay, now that is worthy of some CPD time I might just add it to my house design section, not that any one has ever asked me to design a tree house, 10mg Naturally Occurring Colchicine, Naturally Occurring Colchicine japan, well once perhaps, when I was about 12, and lived on the back of a farm that had a large wood, in which we built a tree house !.
