Participating disciplines include Architecture, Community & Regional Planning, Interior Design, Landscape Architecture, Architectural History, Historic Preservation, Sustainable Design, and Urban Design. Employers who are interested in attending the fair are required to be seeking full-time or internship positions available to students. Third-party recruiting and staffing firms are not eligible to participate.
Career Services maintains its own job board, which is regularly updated as the office is contacted by employers with new job or internship opportunities. This resource is only available to current School of Architecture students and alumni.
NOTICE: UTSOA Career Services provides a free-of-charge job posting service and makes no recommendations regarding potential employers or student employees. All negotiations are handled directly between the student and employer. Employers and students are urged to perform due diligence when offering, applying for, or accepting private off-campus employment.
