    Hi Archinect!

    Since my blog is about our path to becoming a licensed architect, I thought on my first blog post we should define who we really are as an"Intern Architect".

    Most of us experience this when we started our first job after architecture school - What are we called? NCARB & AIA has outlined that we are called "Intern Architect" or "Architectural Intern" until we get our licenses; hence, the infamous Intern Development Program. But many are called "Junior Architect", "Intermediate Architect" or "Architectural Designer". In my firm, I am entitled "Project Designer", but I went from putting "Architectural Designer" to "Project Designer" to "Junior Architect" on my resume. Yet, I still cannot define who I really am.
