Sep '11 - Jan '13
Well Archinect, with the beginning of a new year I'm going to be closing the door on this blog. Seems fitting given that I've found my job (the original focus and intent of this blog), and I'm now busy enough with work that I can hardly make time to post anymore. I haven't completely ruled out the idea of continuing to blog about my internship and eventual licensure, but for now I will not be making a new blog on these topics.
I thank you all for your interest and participation in my blog and I wish you all the best in 2013 and beyond. I hope that if you are looking for work that this might in some way help you and that my experiences, both good and bad, might serve as lessons for you to glean something from.
Thank you Archinect for allowing me the platform. When I saw that you were opening up the blogging platform from just the student blogs, I was probably one of the first to jump on the chance to get a blog.
P.s. Enjoy the randomness of what the glamorous life as an intern architect brings with a few photos.
Scanning as built drawings
Deciding materials and color selection (plus a little graffiti testing)
Changing air filters. This was one month of use during which we had a ton of smoke in the air from nearby wildfires.
Lots and lots of CAD. I snapped this to show my wife where our lives cross ... Chemistry classrooms
Saved this little guy from the heating duct in the old building where we have our offices. We still have no idea how he got in there past the filters.
Commentary on looking for work, portfolio and resume design, networking, social media and the job search, interviews, dealing with rejection and the joy of landing a job.
