I am an independent architect looking to broaden experiences and pursue licensure as an architect. I have been working as a freelancer for the last year and a half during the pandemic, as well as a few wage jobs in order to make ends meet. But I am now looking for employment under a licensed architect in order to progress in my career, as well as save money for my Master’s degree in the near future.
