Autodesk Help to Displaced Workers!
What is a displaced worker? . That’s American, Canadian or a politically correct term for the unemployed Designer, Architect or Engineer.
Autodesk have recognised that these are difficult times for Designers, Engineers and Architects. So they have now extended their Autodesk Assist Program from Students (see posting in December 2008) to the unemployed to enable them to “Extend their skills and improve their employability”.
This Autodesk Assist Program is being launched in North America, and Autodesk hopes to roll the program out in other countries over the next few months.
You can listen to Steve Blum (Senior Vice President America's Sales for Autodesk) discuss the program in a video on the Autodesk YouTube channel.
So when will the Autodesk Assist Program be available in the UK?
I have no idea! the Autodesk YouTube Channel video says 4-6 months.
I have asked questions and when I get answers I will let you know.
