Washington, DC – April 3, 2017 – The American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS) is excited to partner with PPI (Professional Publications, Inc.), a publisher of professional licensing exam materials since 1975, for a new digital career feature. The feature, ‘I Want to Work In’, highlights recent graduates who are living and working in towns and cities around the world. AIAS alumni will provide an inside look at their personal and professional lives while balancing studying for the Architect Registration Exam (ARE). The series will launch on the AIAS website (www.aias.org) and social media channels in the fall of 2017.

The AIAS has also teamed up with PPI to provide a sneak peek of the future during Architecture Week 2017–held April 9-15, 2017–in which snippets and teasers of the ‘I Want to Work In’ feature will air. During this week, students can submit their preferred cities for feature consideration and PPI has put together a sweepstakes that includes an ARE 5 Review Manual, a PPI water bottle, and a Lego® New York City Architecture set.

AIAS Executive Director Nick Serfass says, “The AIAS and PPI work hard to provide as much value as possible regarding career development and preparation for life after architecture school. The ‘I Want to Work In’ series coupled with PPI ARE prep materials deliver robust and practical advice aimed at helping emerging professionals achieve success on the path to becoming an architect.”

Earlier this year, PPI collaborated with the AIAS to become the Preferred ARE Prep Provider of the AIAS. PPI Marketing Manager Barbara Chernyukhin says, “PPI is proud to support the AIAS as their preferred exam prep provider. PPI’s mission is to be the best resource for candidates to prepare for their exams and to help more candidates achieve registration and career success. We’re excited to partner with an organization that promotes leadership among architecture students, and we feel strongly that through this partnership we can help members of the architecture community advance and thrive.”
