Abstract:
The objective of this thesis is to develop a picture of the communications which constitute the job-seeking process of architecture students and the professionals that hire them. This thesis seeks to improve upon standard job-seeking and hiring paradigms and contribute to current job-seeking information, applied specifically to the architecture profession, so that architecture schools are better equipped to prepare students for employment challenges that lie ahead. Two hundred thirteen University of Arizona architecture alumni and two hundred twelve architecture students were surveyed to determine the criteria that architects use when hiring interns, to assess attitudes architects have toward employment-seeking materials, and to uncover perceptions students have about job-seeking. The research concludes that architects' hiring criteria do not match students' perceptions. There were differences in hiring criteria and perceptions of the job-seeking process between and within professional and student populations.
