Florida International University’s School of Architecture (SOA) hosted its annual Career Fair on March 6 and 7, 2018 at the Paul L. Cejas Architecture Building located on the Modesto A. Maidique Campus. Over 180 participants and volunteers were in attendance.
The annual career fair serves as a unique opportunity for graduate students in the architecture, interior architecture and landscape architecture programs to meet and network with employers and recruiters that are interested in hiring our top students for internships or entry-level jobs.
This year, fair organizers opened the registration to graduate students only, allowing greater opportunities for students to receive job offers.
“I registered to participate in the career fair because it offers us the opportunity to get professional interviews and allows us to network and engage with local firms”, explained Jorge Tubella, Masters candidate.
“So often, we get caught up in our design cocoon at school, that we don’t really see what other people are doing within the field. Now, I have a better idea of what my interests are architecturally.”
Prospective employers from 29 architecture and design firms participated in the event, ranging from international architecture firms to boutique, interior design companies. The employers participated in a two-day agenda consisting of presentations, a table fair and interview sessions with top students.
This schedule of events is programmed to build and foster new, professional relationships between students and employers and increase career opportunities for FIU graduate students.
Thank you to all participating firms, students and volunteers that made this year’s Career Fair happen.
