Attending ArchitectureBoston Expo (ABX)? Mark your calendar for Design and Construct Your Perfect Design and Construction Career: Fantasies, Nightmares, Stories – and Maybe, Lessons Learned on Tuesday, 10/28.
Design and construction careers have strong potential to do much more than provide income. At their best, they can also simulate your intellect, provide opportunities for creative expression, offer channels for engagement with interesting peers and open doors to improve humankind. It’s also possible you may encounter some problems. The same abilities that help you land a job can also restrict career development, pigeonholing you into a limited range of project opportunities. The time that it takes to meet every day work requirements can make it difficult to explore alternative career paths. The need to earn an income can make it necessary to take on dead-end tasks. The limited mentoring skills and interests of senior leaders can make it difficult to find useful guidance. Drawing on panelists’ extensive experience, this workshop enables participants to identify and avoid predictable problems, understand and use career design tools, and plan their own career more effectively. Participants leave the workshop with an overall understanding of what’s possible in architectural careers and specific tools to help achieve it.
