    How do I get companies to look at me for other jobs outside my current job title?

    while working (CAD computer Assisted Drafting) I have found myself also doing other jobs for my company such as planning and coordinating events, HR duties, and environmental duties and have found that I really like doing some of them more so than my drafting job.  I also have a 4 year business degree but since my job title isn't  in any of those areas I feel like the jobs I'm applying for don't even give me a chance and I don't know how to get noticed or the chance to talk to them in an interview, HELP please?!

    you should have a profile on linkedin because it works like a CV. So try to update your every information including previous jobs. Companies find people through linkedin because they dont like to pay much via newspaper and other advertisements.

    Do you work full time? A good way to get your foot In the door is to offer a few hours a week voluntary work or even one day a week if you can spare the time.

    That way you get to show them you are good at the job. They will also be more likely to consider you when a job vacancy becomes available because they already know you.

    All job titles beneath the position of director or GM (which are between VP and manager) are largely subjective these days. If you did all of that other work along with your CAD work and you don't want another CAD job, don't list your job title on your resume as "CAD Specialist", "Daftsperson" or anything like it.
    Instead use a title like, Programs Coordinator, Events Manager, Events Specialist, or something like that. You should list CAD work under it as part of your job description and tie it all in with your other duties as if they were related somehow (which they were--sort of). Just be creative. You aren't technically lying, because you did other work and you will mention you had CAD duties on your resume (you just won't highlight that you did CAD duties). Remember the company is looking for someone that can do a job well and they won't see you if you don't advertise yourself as what you are: a business professional with a 4-year degree.
