Firms tell you what they're looking for and how to get hired Julia Ingalls 2015-05-28T12:15:00-04:00 >2015-06-01T22:10:17-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/m0/m0n0mrhus24q4bit.jpg" width="650" height="383" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Putting together a portfolio for a <a href="http://archinect.com/jobs" target="_blank">job application</a> is practically a design commission in of itself. What projects should be included? How should they be presented? Most importantly, what does the compendium of work say about you, the applicant? After speaking with <a href="http://archinect.com/employers" target="_blank">employers</a>, we discovered that the work itself isn&rsquo;t necessarily as important as the <a href="http://archinect.com/talentfinder" target="_blank">thought and agility</a> the portfolio demonstrates.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/126437032/looking-hot-in-a-tight-market-how-firms-successfully-attract-job-applicants Looking Hot in a Tight Market: How Firms Successfully Attract Job Applicants Julia Ingalls 2015-05-21T11:55:00-04:00 >2015-05-21T12:27:00-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/ld/ldc0u2xb5zkbkrwy.jpg" width="650" height="383" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p><a href="http://archinect.com/employers" target="_blank">Employers</a>, we&rsquo;re not trying to hurt your feelings, but be honest: Does your company seem like an attractive place in which to work? Thanks to a robust post-recession <a href="http://archinect.com/jobs" target="_blank">job market</a> that favors employees, <a href="http://archinect.com/talentfinder" target="_blank">job seekers</a> now have a variety of choices when it comes to finding an employer. This means that, much like going on a date, an employer who wants to attract top talent needs to put more effort into the appearance of their <a href="http://archinect.com/jobs" target="_blank">job ads</a>. Although looks aren&rsquo;t everything, first impressions do count.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/126437029/there-are-tons-of-architecture-job-openings-these-days-why-aren-t-you-hired-yet There are tons of architecture job openings these days.

Recent graduates threw up their hands and sought work in other fields; experienced architects, freshly chucked out of their jobs by large firms rapidly downsizing to accommodate the 2008 economic crash, found themselves taking up teaching or other gap-filling work.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/123744704/working-out-of-the-box-abraham-burickson-poet-conceptual-artist-and-founder-of-odyssey-works Working out of the Box: Abraham Burickson, poet, conceptual artist and founder of "Odyssey Works" Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2015-03-27T12:13:00-04:00 >2015-07-13T17:37:37-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/gx/gxwy5xrx3sw22vcd.jpg" width="650" height="488" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p><strong><a href="http://archinect.com/features/tag/1149/working-out-of-the-box" target="_blank">Working out of the Box</a>&nbsp;</strong>is a series of features presenting architects who have applied their architecture backgrounds to alternative career paths.</p><p>In this installment, we're talking with <strong><a href="http://abrahamburickson.com/?page_id=130" target="_blank">Abraham Burickson</a></strong>,&nbsp;founder of&nbsp;<a href="http://www.odysseyworks.org/" target="_blank">Odyssey Works</a>.</p><p><em>Are you an architect working out of the box?
