Many firms appear to want you to know about specific software (AutoCAD, Revit, Tekla, RISA-3D, etc.). But none of my internships has provided me with this experience. Has anybody been lucky enough to contact small firms or independent consultants in return for training/experience? If so, what is the best way? I'm seeking specifically structural expertise.

In TheConstructor you can ask and answer questions and share your experience with others!
When they mention experience, they question whether you can utilize the program. A firm doesn't want to invest six months of software training. The significant part is you can study software alone. Revit is still functional when the trial expires. Buy a book, learn software, and that'll be enough for many firms.
I have specific recommendations for each software kinds. For analysis software (RISA, etc.), experimenting with it is helpful as you will utilize analysis tools in your structural work. It's recognized you'll have plenty of studying to complete on the program if you start a job at the entry level, but any familiarity is a bonus. How much you use it to design software (CAD, Revit, etc.) depends significantly on your company's size. Larger firms tend to have engineers focused on calcs and drafters focused on drawings (you'll learn how to mark pictures in the program to update efficiently). For smaller businesses, you'll be required to conduct both calcs/analysis and drafting. Regardless, AutoCAD is an excellent product to use, no matter how basic it may look compared to others. The more complex drafting software (Tekla with built-in BIM intelligence, etc.) tends to be left to drafters to run as it needs a deeper learning dive than your engineers generally willing to commit. Even if you don't get a draft often, familiarizing yourself with AutoCAD is essential for producing precise sketches to scale, navigating CAD files you could obtain from customers, and generally knowing what influence your markups on drawings imply drafter to pick you up.
