Students across all disciplines in the School of Architecture and Allied Arts join professionals for mentoring, feedback, and guidance with their career decisions, and job/internship search. Each year we serve between 150-175 students from all nine disciplines, and invite over 60 professionals.

The format for the event is designed to provide an informal setting for discussions about current trends in each discipline, opportunities for resume and portfolio reviews as well as practice interviews. We set a ratio of 3-4 students per professional. Round tables for discussion, portfolio reviews and practice interviews are combined with workshops and networking opportunities during lunch and the New Professionals Reception. This event has inspired students to pursue their career dreams with renewed enthusiasm and tools for success. Many clarify what they want to do in their career and feel more prepared to graduate and into their profession.

·      Networking luncheon
