I think your words, "familiarity with AutoCAD 2000" would suffice, without being misleading. However, let me ask you this: do you have a portfolio of work to show? If you're serious about getting hired, even as a low-paid intern (what?, you thought you were going to start as a project architect?), you'll need to have samples of CAD drawings you've done, even if they are speculative samples (i.e., not work done for a "real" project, but one you've made up). This the way to develop a portfolio when you have no work experience yet. If your objective is to become an architect, you'll certainly need to show sample drawings and renderings of any class work you did, and if you're not confident of that work, then you need to spend some time working on improving upon it. Other than that, I don't know what to say. It's a very competitive job market out there. You either have what it takes, or you don't.
