Career Season 2017 Culminates in the Most Successful Career Fair in Years!

Empowerment, Engagement and Immersion were buzzing in this year’s Career Fair at U-SoA where (100+) students, alumni, career fair partners and hiring firms collaborated in another successful event with unprecedented attendance and partner participation.Students had a chance to engage with industry professionals, gain insights on best career-building practices and access first-hand intelligence on real-world policies and practices in architecture, preparing them to transition from the academic to the professional world. An U-SoA alumni (representing the firm of Looney Ricks Kiss) and participant on the “Getting Hired” panel noted, “it was a great idea to have students talk to a variety of people in a small setting and get some insight on the hiring process!” The Career Season’s multi-pronged strategy heralds the initiative to closely unite U-SoA faculty and hiring firms in new and innovative ways, to bridge the gap between academia and real-world, ultimately benefitting U-SoA students and their future. More than 30 hiring firms in the urban planning, design and architectural field from around the nation, met with U-SoA students exchanging valuable perspectives, insights for career-building success and seeking to employ U-SoA students. Follow-up communication and interviews are still being conducted. Given the level of success, we expect to see great employment results for U-SoA students and alumni.
