I am a Company Representative, Why Should I Attend?

Over 1200 of the most creative and academically gifted students make up the School of Architecture and School of Design. Each of our four programs in Architecture, Interior Design, Landscape Architecture, and Industrial Design have been ranked among the best in the country by Design Intelligence.

For those with staffing needs in 2024, our students, who are on their way to obtaining professionally accredited degrees will attend Career Day with their resumes and portfolios.

For those who do not currently need new hires in 2024, our Career Day is still an important opportunity to meet and connect with students that you might want to hire in the future.

Our Career Day is a key source of funding to ensure that we continue to feed the profession with top-quality graduates.

I am a Student, Why Should I Attend?

This is an amazing opportunity to connect with representatives from over 100 architecture and design firms from across the country who are looking to recruit fresh talent like you. 

All students interested in pursuing careers in any design-related fields are encouraged to attend. This year there will be companies who represent various aspects of design, not limited to architecture, interior design, landscape architecture, and industrial design, but also including stage design, museum curation, furniture design, etc.

All companies attending will have a booth set up where students can talk to representatives from the company to learn more about what fields the company specializes in and what a potential career at that company would look like.

Students should bring their resume/CV along with a work sample to show the company representatives. This will allow the companies to learn more about student backgrounds.

Meet our Keynote Speaker

This year’s keynote speaker will be Amale Andraos, co-founder of WORKac in New York City and Professor and Dean Emeritus of Columbia Graduate School of Architecture and Planning (GSAPP).
