In an industry known for playing canary in the employment coalmine, architecture is once again experiencing a hiring boom. Additionally, thanks to changes in technology, both in design software and in the more general way people communicate online, several fields have either newly appeared or considerably expanded in architecturally-related work.&nbsp;In this series, we&rsquo;ll be spotlighting specific new careers within architecture, including a basic description, the ideal background you should have for this position, any particular software/tools you should master, and the most likely regions where you can find this type of work based on <a href="http://archinect.com/jobs" target="_blank">Archinect's&nbsp;job board</a>.</p> https://archinect.com/features/article/126437029/there-are-tons-of-architecture-job-openings-these-days-why-aren-t-you-hired-yet There are tons of architecture job openings these days.
