In an industry known for playing canary in the employment coalmine, architecture is once again experiencing a hiring boom. Additionally, thanks to changes in technology, both in design software and in the more general way people communicate online, several fields have either newly appeared or considerably expanded in architecturally-related work.&nbsp;In this series, we&rsquo;ll be spotlighting specific new careers within architecture, including a basic description, the ideal background you should have for this position, any particular software/tools you should master, and the most likely regions where you can find this type of work based on <a href="http://archinect.com/jobs" target="_blank">Archinect's&nbsp;job board</a>.</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.

The pace of that change for everyone who has directly suffered from the Great Recession is admittedly glacial, though some continue to argue that the Great Recession hasn&rsquo;t done &ldquo;too much&rdquo; harm to the building and design industries.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/24220512/the-ideal-firm-s-profile The Ideal Firm’s Profile Sherin Wing 2011-10-17T12:34:04-04:00 >2011-11-24T09:05:52-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/cq/cqhhd3x7e1qzv0wm.jpg" width="514" height="303" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> In publications such as <em>The Atlantic Monthly</em> and <em>The Economist</em>, articles have heralded a new economic era. An era that demands that business be done differently in order to survive not only the continuing recession but to create a new, more agile business model.
