If you have ever worked in a support role in an Architectural office, weather it was CAD, BIM, or some mix of both Support then you should spend a few minutes and read this post from BIM Freak. I have personally been in this role a few times, and in fact back in the day I worked with Laura from BIM Freak in the same office doing the same role.
