Today I got a message from Robert Miller, Director of the College of Architecture at The University of Arizona. He is making an effort to desseminate information about an outreach program assisting out-of-work and underemployed architecture graduates. Mark your calendars!

In this prolonged recession, the UofA School of Architecture in collaboration with AIA Southern Arizona will reach out to all recent architecture graduates, from any school, who are under- or un-employed. We will be holding events this year designed to put you back in touch with your discipline.

Your Online Career Networking Strategy
Wednessday, November 3, 2010
7:00-8:00 PM

  • Tait Johnson
  • Paul Reimer

In this seminar you will learn how to harness LinkedIn and online networking services to connect with potential employers. You’ll also discover how to make it easy for employers to find what you want them to find online (and they WILL search for you online.) Finally, learn the power of LinkedIn to reveal “friends of friends” inside the firm in which you seek employment…and why knowing someone “on the inside” can be so effective.

Portfolio & Resume Design Forum
Thursday, November 18, 2010
7:00-8:00 PM

  • Kim Fernández, AIA, LEED AP, Principal
    ABA Architects, PC
  • Frank Mascia, FAIA, ACHA, Principal
  • Robin Shambach, AIA, LEEP AP, Principal,
    Burns Wald-Hopkins Shambach Architects

What do interviewers really think  when they see your resume and portfolio? How can you package your abilities and experience to make the best impact on practitioners?

This seminar will let you benefit from the candid advice of local architects about portfolio and resume design. A diverse panel of principals will share with you their perspectives on qualities that firms want to see in the portfolios and resumes that cross their desks; then, they will critique your resume and portfolio for strengths and areas for improvement.
