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.
