Working as an architect is an immensely rewarding profession, and not simply in terms of the financial reward; the practice blends design skills, artistic flair, and an understanding of physical materials and appreciation of indoor and outdoor space in the creation of functional surroundings for people to enjoy.

Gaining entry to this profession requires a rigorous academic grounding combined with work experience and professional study, and the skills which are acquired command both respect and highly rewarding and generous benefits packages from employers and clients. Many architects actually establish their own businesses and work for themselves, but you will find many working for a wide range of companies and public agencies as no aspect of our modern surroundings is untouched by architects, from conception through to building completion.

Entry-level architecture jobs are offered by a wide range of employers, including not only architects with their own practices but also developers and construction companies. In addition there are many different career paths for a newly qualified architect to follow depending on his or her interest and professional leanings; many architects work in the commercial sphere, designing public and commercial structures that could range from a humble post office to the world’s largest skyscrapers. There are also smaller practices which provide architectural services to smaller companies and even individuals who are building or modifying their homes. Many architects do not work on indoor projects but concentrate their creative energies on the outdoor environment, and there are many landscape architecture jobs available in the country today which testify to the demand for these skills and services.

With the skills, experience, and qualifications earned over lengthy periods of time and the high demand for architectural services, you can be assured of a generous and attractive remuneration and benefits package no matter what stage of your career you are at. A real issue for architects is being able to collect, collate, and assess the opportunities that are available on the market and to negotiate the best deal for their services that is possible; this applies not only to those looking for a new job but to those who are looking to remain with their current employer but want to assess what their skills are worth to another employer when it comes to negotiating a salary raise or change in contract.

It helps enormously to develop a competitive advantage over your fellow job seekers when you commence looking for a position. When you start an initial search for a job that you are interested in and that matches the level of skill and experience you have to offer, you should be looking to immediately differentiate yourself from your competitors in the eyes of a potential employer. No doubt you will be using the Internet as a source of information and advice; however, there are some things you ought to consider whenever you are using the Internet that can help you with finding the job you want.

For instance, did you know that many companies offering recruiting and vacancy listing services are simply taking your uploaded resume and distributing it to employers who are often nothing more than a name and contact listing on a database, or that they may be selling your resume on to other third parties who have nothing to do with finding you a suitable position? Make certain you use a web service which gives you total control and the ability to manage your resume and allows you to decide who gets access to it; this is a sensitive document that you do not want falling into the wrong hands, not least of which would be your current employer.

You can find whether a website is actually providing the services it claims to deliver by performing a few simple checks on the credentials of the site. Any website without a physical mailing address or a landline telephone number should be avoided, and any company that requires you to pay money up front without any trial of the service should also be avoided.

Fees and charges are often a thorny issue for many individual job seekers and employers who are advertising their vacancies. Many websites do not charge individual job seekers and instead levy fees against the employer looking to advertise the position. There are many large websites using this form of business model, but there are serious flaws and disadvantages to it that adversely affect individual users. For instance, employers do not always wish to pay to advertise a vacancy, and so any website which charges an employer is automatically restricting the scope of its listing service. Frequently the information that is listed is also out of date, as the website owner makes no effort to update the information and employers themselves do not remove their listings once a position is filled, so users must always question and check the veracity of the information they are being given.

Web services which do not charge employers, and indeed services which actively collect and collate vacancy information from a range of offline and online sources, are likely to provide the most comprehensive listing services. Look for a web service with a dedicated team that is collecting and analyzing vacancy information, as this is a sign that the company operating behind the website is very serious about maintaining the quality and current status of the listings database. The downside is that individual job seekers are required to pay a fee for the service, but this tends to be fairly low and, in any event, you will always get a free trial period from a reputable service provider.
