5 Ingredients of an Architecture Resume

1. Resume Length

As most architecture resume are small to mid-sized, the chances are that the person reviewing your application is the Principal Architect or an architect senior enough to be put in charge of hiring.

3. Work Experience

Clarifying your work experience lets the employer know what you are already proficient in and, more importantly, how the firm could use your expertise to support their work. Above everything else, the employer will want to see what you have already done as an architect to assess the type of work you have under your belt.

4. Roles Performed

In your employment history section, include specific information on the roles you performed along with any distinctions that made your job unique to that employer. Listing who you worked for is standard in any resume section, but it is more critical to list what you did.

5. Education

With little work experience behind you yet, your accomplishments in architecture school are going to be your shining beacon of growth and achievement. This area is crucial when you graduate and first put your shoes on the pavement.
