EMERGING PROFESSIONAL ON THE PATH TO LICENSURE:
Full-time intern on the path to licensure, ranging from fewer than two years [that means, “never worked in a professional architectural office before” don’t worry, it’s going to be okay] of experience up to six years of experience, works under direction of others; provides planning/design/coordination consultation on projects; reviews/approves conceptual designs. Basically, kind of like school, but not really. Responsible for specific technical design aspects of an assigned project including investigation, evaluation, and recommendation of design solutions. Performs assignments under direction with limited responsibility for design. Independently makes decisions on significant architectural design problems and methods. That really means “come up with 3 answers to your own question, before asking your boss” no worries if they’re all wrong, seriously…that’s how we learn around here! Reviews and approves conceptual designs. Carries out complex or novel assignments requiring the development of new or improved techniques and procedures.

Qualifications:
Strong organizational and time management skills to handle multiple projects and deadlines. Effective communication and interaction with Team Members is absolutely necessary. Revit fluency is required; AutoCADD is a plus. Ability to work hard and play hard; enjoying a smooth IPA at the end of a challenging work-day/week [not only reserved for Hump-days or HH Fridays] with colleagues, is a definite plus. Ideal candidates that possess aptitude in thriving within a fast-paced, dynamic environment, and occasionally sing [out-of-tune] to themselves (with earbuds, naturally), will be strongly considered.
