With resumes and portfolios in hand, over 130 FIU School of Architecture (SOA) graduate students attended on the 2019 Career Fair on Tuesday, February 19th. A total of 30 different employers were on hand to discuss full-time, part-time and internship positions with prospective employees.
The annual SOA Career Fair serves as a unique opportunity for students in the architecture, interior architecture and landscape architecture programs to meet and interact with employers and recruiters. In addition, the fair offers exclusive access to hiring representatives from renown international firms and organizations such as HKS, Arquitectonica, Perkins + Will, and the U.S. Air Force.
Both employers and students participate in a full-day agenda consisting of a lecture, panel discussion, firm presentations, and a table fair. The next day, employers select top students for interview sessions. This schedule is programmed to build and foster new, professional relationships between employers and students, and overall increase future career opportunities.
“The SOA team spent a lot of time and efforts to ensure the success of the event. We were amazed by the overall quality of the students. It is important to be connected and give back to the local community and help the younger generation,” said Cong Wang, Senior Designer at CallisonRTKL, Inc.
Thank you to all participating firms and students that made this year’s Career Fair a success.
