2017 FIRM FAIR

The Firm Fair is a one day event following the week long Career Week activities where students engage with representatives of premier architectural and design related firms. This event is held at The Radisson Hotel.  Professionals set up tables and displays designed to promote discussion and interaction between the students and the professionals allowing the students the opportunity to learn about each firm’s expertise, organizational structure, culture and portfolio. This unique opportunity of bringing professionals and students together allows the students to learn of employment opportunities while giving the professionals a sneak preview of the graduating class in the hope of identifying those best suited to their future needs and opportunities.
