CANCELLED – AIAS Kent – Emerging Professionals Panel + Mock-Interview Workshop

UPDATE:

Cancelled. We will repost when rescheduled.

AIAS Kent – Emerging Professionals Panel + Mock-Interview Workshop

As part of a workshop series AIAS Kent is looking for AIA Akron volunteers for our mock-interview workshop. It would be a two hour commitment on Saturday, April 13th from 1-3pm in 202 Taylor Hall.

We are looking for two categories of volunteers:

Emerging Professionals: (5+ individuals)
We would like to engage engage a few emerging professionals to sit on a panel and take turns answering students questions such as what to wear to an interview, how to craft a good follow up email, IDP process, examinations etc.
Interviewers: (4+ individuals)
We are seeking Architects who have experience with interviewing to interview our members as if they were applying for a position. After the “interview” critique them their performance. Give them advice on ways they can better their portfolio, resume, image etc.
If you are not an emerging professional but would still like to sit on the panel you are more than welcome to come. We would love to have as many architects show up as possible. Our main theme of this workshop is “employability skills” but we are also wanting to give our members a chance to meet professionals and get the questions answered that studio doesn’t answer.
