Personalized assistance and advising is available to students within the School of Architecture through one-on-one advising, career workshops and an elective course. These offerings provide students opportunities to refine interview skills, develop professional contacts and practice career building skills.
Upper-level and graduate students can make appointments for personalized assistance with Abby Lukens, senior admissions and career coordinator.
The Career Development program helps students as they develop their resumes and portfolios into professional, succinct documents. This is an ongoing process that requires continual review and iterations. Students are encouraged to have their documents reviewed by both Megan Weyland and faculty members, and participate in classes and workshops offered on these topics.
The Career Development program coordinates various workshops and student Q&A discussions based on relevant topics within the profession. Topics and guest speakers are coordinated to inform students on pertinent issues such as licensure, career path trajectories and the importance of professional affiliations. The Career Development program offers a credit career course to expand on the topics presented in the Professional Concerns course.
