Student Information

Thank you for your interest in participating in the 2020 College of Architecture Internship / Career Fair. This event is an excellent opportunity to bring multiple students and potential employers together. Participating students are expected to treat this event in a serious and professional manor. This means a well-designed portfolio, properly formatted resume, and thorough research into the firms with whom you will interview.

This event is intended for 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th year M.Arch, 3rd and 4th Interior Design, and 3rd, 4th, and 5th Year Landscape Architecture, and Community and Regional Planning students. Participation in this Internship/Career Fair event is not limited to students who will enroll in an internship course. In addition to an expo type format where you will be able to network with firms in the morning, the afternoon provides semi-private interview booths, each with a table and chairs, thus providing the opportunity for students and potential employers to get to know each other in a more personable environment. All interviews will last for 20 minutes. Should an interview go well, you may be invited to visit the firm's office during or near your spring vacation, where you can get to know each other even better.

Whether this is your first Internship / Career Fair or your third, this link contains excellent advice for developing your professional reputation, and effectively presenting yourself. You are advised to begin your preparation for this event as soon as possible. You must generate or update your resume, as well as a portfolio of your best 3-5 projects. Your portfolio and resume are essential for facilitating conversations with potential employers.  

Interview Advice

Please keep in mind that your participation in the College of Architecture Internship / Career Fair comes with the responsibilities of showing up to your scheduled interviews, being well-prepared, and conducting yourself in a professional manor. A no-show reflects badly on you, and the college. If you do not show up, please realize that you have taken an opportunity from both your colleagues and the attending firm to use your interview slot.
