James W. Fiore, Jr.

Springfield, MA, US



I am currently seeking an entry level position or internship in the field of architecture.  I recently earned my Master’s degree in Architecture from the University of Massachusetts Amherst.  It is my desire to intern for a firm in western Massachusetts or northern Connecticut in order to serve the community I live in and care about. 

Working with architects who strive to make a positive social impact is important to me as I move towards my career goals.  I have always been a creative person who enjoys seeing projects through to their completion.  I am someone who is able to see both the full picture and how details come together to make a whole.  Architecture is my chosen career because I view architecture as a team art and greatly enjoy working with other creative people.
