Believe it or not my favorite thing to do as a kid was to draw out floor plans. I have notebooks full of residential floor plans from when I was very young. When I got older I loved playing with CAD software, but for some reason, I went into Software Engineering instead. I have a B.S. in Computer Science and I'm almost finished with a M.S. in Software Engineering (company paid for it). I've been an unhappy software engineer for the past few years. I took career tests in high school which led me to become a software engineer but I truly think they were incorrect in directing me to this career.
So, I was hoping that I could start doing freelance CAD drafting on the side. I don't have any professional experience but I have used AutoCAD quite a bit in my spare time. Could anyone give me some guidance on how to start freelancing? Do I need to go back to school and get a certificate/license or anything? I live in Massachusetts by the way.
Thanks you in advance :)
