    I have noticed more and more job postings are requiring Catia v
    experience. Is this similar to Solidworks?

    In some ways yes, but not enough to be very productive. It is a
    parametric CAD, works on a (history) feature tree and you can make both
    top down and bottom up design.

    You have to get used to the interface and slightly different workflow
    which takes a while. The most annoying thing that I found was the way
    mouse is used to rotate a view - you have to hold the left and middle
    button at the same time - (never found a way to re-map it). This is
    annoying if you do not use your middle finger on the middle button.
