After graduation from Master of Architecture program, I have started working for a sub-contractor specialized on aluminum and composite panel siding for buildings in San Jose, Bay Area. There, I worked as the main architect managing the drafting office, supervising the construction site, providing the shop drawings and helping the shop employees to craft specific pieces for challenging projects. There, I learned a great deal of responsibilities and realized how vital is detailed precision to satisfy our client request
After this experience I was eager to get back to architectural world, soon I became part of a mid-size architectural firm in Utah. Being part of a team fostered the role of teamwork in me. My keen perspective about the construction site and design allowed me to be involved in variety of projects. Working in a fast-paced environment, jumping from one project to another with many deadlines helped me to improve my management skills and easily adapt to any kind of circumstances. Both of which are one of the most valuable characteristics of any excellent employee.
Additionally, I have a degree in architectural studies focusing on Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE) which lead me to develop and run a POE plan. This specialty provided me with the skills to launch and manage different meetings, study more about the building function how satisfy our client more successfully. I presented my study in two international conference (ICSDEC, Chicago 2015 and BTES, Utah 2015). Not everyone in a firm has the ability to execute this practice and that is another key factor that distinguishes me from my peers.
