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 appointment time.
