Revit-BIM Experience Required | Architect –Engineer -Construction Jobs

Posted by Daniel Hughes on May 25, 2016 10:30:00 AM

Many architectural, engineering and construction job postings; require applicants to have proficient BIM software and project experience with Revit, ArchiCAD, Bentley, or Vectorworks. The BIM skill-set is now in higher demand; then the CAD skill-set.

Here are 3 sites, I personally use and continue to refer to my colleagues; if they are looking for jobs that require Revit experience OR advertising their open Revit job positions.

1) LinkedIn.com | Jobs Search Page: www.linkedin.com/jobs

LinkedIn is a highly respected, networking portal; with millions of global members from all professions. Post a job, maintain your resume in your profile while searching for jobs or key contacts within the organization you are researching.

Last night, I found 17 Revit-BIM based jobs in LinkedIn Job Search using the keyword "revit". They were posted within the last 24 hours. More than 45 Revit BIM-based jobs were posted in the last 2-7 days. Use the left margin "Filter Tools" to refine the search results. Unlike many job sites; LinkedIn jobs are highly detailed in the job position description.

Another benefit, LinkedIn will also scan your contacts/connections and list possible ways you might leverage your connections to contact or engage in a job's submittal process.

What is the Best Timeline for Upgrading Revit Software

What is the Best Timeline for Upgrading Revit Software?

Here's the 7-point recommendation I've usually offered to BIM Managers and posted for this discussion in the Revit Users LinkedIn Group:

I usually ask my clients to review & consider these points; prior to upgrading.

  • "How will a Revit product upgrade affect your project's current timelines and team members?"
  • If a project's print or submittal milestone date is looming in the next 30-45 days, I don't recommend an upgrade...especially for larger project teams.
  • If the project is long term and does not have an immediate print/submittal milestone; the PM/PA is consulted to discuss a potential switch date of a project's Revit version with his/her entire team (design, engineering, contractor).
  • I encourage BIM Managers to "look out" 3-6 months from December --and review new incoming projects that may be acceptable for the next Revit version. Based on software subscription dates; Autodesk software is updated each March-April.
  • During this time, BIM Managers should review, "What current or future projects should be considered for upgrade or to be started on the newest version of software?"
  • I suggest that Revit\BIM Managers consider participating with Autodesk's Beta programs as they can be helpful to "kicking the tires" early using test equipment to anticipate any training, equipment or process changes to the project team(s).
  • Most (IT & Project Teams) agree that they will wait until the first service pack...re-patching an installed release is disruptive. However, the First Customer Shipment (FCS) version is used to do final testing of deployment images, upgraded Revit standards, project testing, equipment upgrades and training update materials.

My recommendation is based on technically supporting and consulting the Revit upgrade process with hundreds of Revit-based design firms since 2002.
