It’s that time again!

The AIAS and PPI have teamed up to bring you I Want to Work In’, a career feature that highlights recent graduates who are living and working in towns and cities around the world and will provide an inside look at their personal and professional lives while balancing studying for the Architect Registration Exam (ARE).

Each month we will explore a new city: where to live, where to work, where to eat(!), where to make friends and, most importantly, how to get involved in the professional community and achieve your goals in licensure, practice, and beyond.

This week we are teaming up with PPI to feature another five alumni who are currently living, working, and studying in some of the best locations in the US: Sarah Killingsworth in Houston, TX; Nicole Gerou in Detroit, MI; Jared Guilmett in Laconia, NH; Josh Kieb in Charlotte, NC; and Kaitlin Gerson in New York, NY.

Follow along

Join us on our Instagram channel as each day a new alum takes over our channel. Explore their cities through their eyes and follow along with our hashtag #iwtwi.
