Navigating the Profession in Uncertain Times: Part 1

Friday, June 12, 2020

Entering the workforce is an exciting time filled with optimism, though the current health crisis and economic uncertainty present unique challenges to recent and soon-to-be graduates.

Created in partnership with the Department of Architecture at Kennesaw State University, this two-part series will provide insight into how design firms are managing these uncertainties and adjusting their development and hiring plans to ensure business viability.

Register now to understand what to expect in the job market, how to find the right position, and how to market your skills to fit the profession’s current demands. Firm leaders will also share their strategies for moving forward and experiences from past economic downturns.

Audience participation is highly encouraged! The roundtable will include breakout sessions for a more intimate discussion with the panelists.

This series is intended to serve recent graduates and/or students entering the last year of the program at local and regional architectural schools. Share your thoughts and questions before the event here:

Space is limited. If you cannot attend, please cancel your registration so someone else can attend in your place. The session will be recorded for future playback.
