V-8 What defines a "NX Proficient" Designer or Engineer?
In an ever increasing contractual workforce that spans the globe, how can an employer really find competent, professional Designers and/or Engineers that truly understand basic NX functionality like Modeling, Assemblies, and Drafting? This question has become more important with the advent of the outsourcing of talent acquisition with most employers. Can an employer afford to take a risk on unproven talent, especially with tighter deadlines and margins?
