Archvoices and the AIA National Associates Committee (NAC) is conducting a survey of interns to plumb the level of satisfaction and/or disillusionment among the next generation of architects. It’s no secret that the profession is losing some talent to better-paying fields that value their CAD and design skills. The survey also seeks to rank how expectations align with the reality of working within professional practice. The web-based “2003 Internship and Career Survey,” shipped mid-March to Archvoices' subscriber e-mail addresses.
Some questions included:
Please rank in order your three most important reasons for going into architecture in the first place.
Which one of the following best describes your current anticipated career path?
How does your current career outlook compare with your expectations when you first embarked on your pursuit of architecture?
It also addresses some educational and licensure issues that have been rearing their heads for years—the difference between a bachelor’s and a master’s; and how much does the sponsoring firm kick in toward testing pre-licensure and continuing education after.
If you’ve earned a B.Arch or M.Arch, at what point did you obtain your first professional architecture job?
What level of monetary support (if any) does your current firm provide in each of these areas?
How do you rate the difficulty of the ARE?
Results should begin appearing on the site in June.
