If you change your major or job then it's totally fine... but architecture firms, mostly no money + su + cad (they don't even use Rhino or Revit in most companies) + endless overtime work + nothing to learn except very few companies.

Hello, I am also thinking of finding an internship in South Korea out of curiosity. However, unlike Göktuğ, I am strictly looking for an office internship. I am an American living in Turkey at the moment. I am a 3rd-year architecture student. I have done a construction site internship in Turkey, and overtime work here is also frequent. Hierarchy and disrespect from higher positions are anticipated, which is why I plan on moving back to the states. However, before doing so, I want to experience the life of an architect in South Korea by doing a 2-months summer internship. What programs do they use if they do not use Rhino and Revit? We mostly use AutoCAD for 2D technical drawings and Rhino for 3D models, then use Photoshop to enhance the renderings. Or use Revit for everything. I recently started learning SketchUp and 3Ds Max. Any suggestions on what to learn to adapt to the Korean Architecture sector? Also, do you suggest any firms that we, as foreigners, should consider applying to? I started learning how to write and read Korean Hangul Alphabet, but my grammar and formal/informal communication skills are nowhere near ready for a work environment. Are there any English-friendly architecture firms that we should consider? Thank you. Looking forward to your response, Lara
