In February, the AIAS launched our first career-focused event, THRIVE: A Career Prep Program. Held throughout the month, in both Philadelphia and Chicago, professionals came together to talk about what students can expect in the first days, weeks, and months in practice.

Our friends over at Black Spectacles partnered with us to film the events and live stream them on our social media channels. Developed in conjunction with THRIVE, Black Spectacles just released a new guide, “How To Get A Job In Architecture,” which is full of tips and strategies for securing your first job after you graduate.

You’ll learn tips directly from the people who will be interviewing you, including practicing architects and HR professionals at some of the top firms in the world like Gensler, Cannon Design, Ross Barney Architects, Perkins+Will, and HOK. Check out the snippets of conversations from THRIVE below.

View the rest of the conversations on our YouTube Playlist.

Bonus: Do you know the design tools you need to work at the top architecture firms in the world? Black Spectacles surveyed over 1,500 of the top firms to find out.
