Knowledge, Skills and Abilities

We expect the intern to have already established interpersonal skills, including working well with others, being respectful and communicating effectively. We also expect the intern to demonstrate his/her evolving design/technical skills and professionalism respective of your level of experience. We also will be looking for:

  • 3D, spatial thinking, and the ability to represent that with an “artful eye”
  • Experience using Revit
  • Experience using SketchUp
  • General capabilities of Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign

We prefer to offer the internship to a student who has at least completed his/her third year of undergraduate studies leading to a BA/BS in Architecture. Previous design office experience is a bonus.

Working Conditions

Work is performed in a professional, creative, open office environment with business casual attire. Hours of work will generally be during regular business hours and will average up to 40 hours per week, depending upon the intern’s availability. The internship may be extended to a part-time position upon the intern’s return to school, if the need and circumstances allow.
