Ehrlich Yanai Rhee Chaney Architects is a 45-person design firm with offices in Los Angeles, CA and San Francisco.

EYRC offers a friendly and supportive environment in which interns can gain real-world experience and develop their skills under the direct tutelage of licensed architects.  The office is focused on the expression of visions as constructed realities.

We are seeking entry-level individuals who are interested in furthering their education by working as interns in this context.  Positions are available three-month periods and require a 40-hour-per-week commitment. Exposure to the working world of professional practice is gained through opportunities which might include:  utilizing Revit on a project, constructing study and presentation models; assistance with the design development of a project; preparing presentation drawings for publication and/or awards programs; supporting day-to-day architectural office tasks (research, errands, etc.); and witnessing the ongoing progress of a project through visits to construction sites, attendance at meetings with consultants, visits to local building departments, and similar experiences.

Candidates should be open-minded, responsible, and enthusiastic, with a minimum of two years’ architectural education and demonstrated basic technical drawing, model building and rendering skills. Prior work experience and knowledge of Revit, Rhino and Photoshop are helpful. This is a non-salaried position, compensation is in the form of a stipend, academic credit (as available), professional credit, and an invaluable work or academic reference. 1 vacation day is accrued for each 3 months of internship duration.

Positions are available ONLY to individuals holding legal US work status.  Interns will be required to obtain a social security number to be paid.  Be prepared to show an Employment Authorization Card and a visa that authorizes temporary work in the U.S.  Please check with your university or the nearest US Embassy for more information.  The Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE) may also be able to resolve visa conditions and US work permits.
