I am a B.Arch graduate from American University of Sharjah. I graduated in the year 2009 and have worked occasionally on freelance projects since. So basically I haven't been employed since graduation in 2009. I tried looking for full-time jobs recently with a revamped portfolio but the response has not been very good due to the work gap in the CV. So I am thinking if I should apply to graduate school for Fall 2014 to help me get back into good practicing firms.
I need advice regarding if I should continue looking for work or focus on studying for my GREs and getting my paper-work together to apply to Columbia, UPenn, AA & Sci-Arch for Masters in Architecture.
Please advice as to what is the best way to get back into the profession.
My portfolio site can be found at https://sumairakhalid.squarespace.com/
It has my work in concise form.
Please have a look and advice. Thanks.
Get a job. Get work experience. If you've done all those renderings in your portfolio site, you should have no problem finding a job doing renderings at the very least. If you stick with the firm, you might grow and get more practical experience.
