SATURDAY, DECEMBER 31, 2011
It has been said, “Decide what you want out of life, create the terms that allow you to do this, and then design you day-to-day life to reinforce your goals.” You may not think of a career as something to be designed, but career designing can be exciting as you learn more about yourself and design your future path.
Through a series of exercises, this interactive session will allow you to reflect on your architectural experiences; learn how the career development process relates to the design process, and envision your future career in architecture or not.
A.R.C.H.I.T.E.C.T: The Career Search
As you approach graduation, do you know your next step will be? Will it be attending graduate school, working in an architecture firm, or something else? Through this interactive workshop, learn how to prepare for your career after school by being exposed to the steps securing a position in an architecture firm and exploring how to what to do next.
Careers Paths of the Architect
A degree in architecture is becoming the new MBA. Architectural education is one of the last liberal arts degrees combing art, history, and science with problem solving skills. With this base of knowledge, graduates with a degree in architecture can work in many related fields or specialize within the profession. This workshop will provide career paths, both traditional and alternates to the traditional role of the architect. In addition, information on resources for careers in architecture and off the beaten path careers will be shared.
