    Getting a new job!

    Hi Archinect!

    For a very long time, I have been looking for a new job. Changing jobs among intern architects seems to be a normal trend. Some of my friends have even changed three jobs in two years. So, after a year and a half, I thought it's about time for me to learn something new. Like many others, my goal was to work in the city. And like many others, I have sent out tons of resumes to many firms in the city, but still haven't gotten any response.

    Let's see how I found my job after the break.

      Congrats!  I'm in a similar situation - an intern (who got laid off) and just started my new job this week - 1400 miles away!  It's exciting and stressful but things will settle down eventually on this roller coaster ride, right?

      Good luck in that new step you are heading :) I appreciated the share and found it very encouraging.

      Good luck!! This was very inspiring, as I'm in the same boat (especially in regards to the last part about looking for other non-related work). I hope you continue blogging your experiences!

      Thank you! I am glad you enjoyed it. It's always good to share our stories :)

      Yes, it will definitely settle down. But I like the exciting part of accepting new changes too! My new job will be an hour drive for me though. Are you relocating for yours?

      Thanks! Hope you all the best too :)
