    Intern 101: How to get involved in your firm

    Hi Archinect,

    Do you think you are not doing much at your job? A lot of us are usually drafting every second of the day, but we can do so much more. First, we need to take the initiative to infuse some fun and young energy into our office environment. Don't just sit in front of your computer all day. The more we get involved, the more we will learn, and the more we can contribute to the work we do.

    1. Volunteer to do anything
    Maybe not ANYTHING... But something that you are interested in. It might not be something that you would put on your resume, but find some different thing to do while at work can keep you sane. I write our office blog covering our weekly luncheons, when I am bored of doing CD. Not only is it super fun, but it also lets me work with the marketing folks which is a great learning experience. Maybe you can make proposals, take care of the material library, make a library of revit families, cad blocks, organize activities.....Do something that you like, so when you are tired of doing RCP, you can at least have a little fun.

    More ways to get involved after the break.
