I’m curious to know if anyone has experience working part-time in architecture? I have been working for large international firms in NYC for the past 10 years. So I work all day every day. My evenings and often the weekends are all absorbed by work duties. Working part-time would allow me to find a better balance, and carve out space for side gigs and eventually start my own firm. Any recommendations?

Only occurrence when I worked part time was as an intern. Doesn’t seem like the field and the way the architecture office culture is built would support part time work. You’d definitely be less valued even if indirectly. My 2c is that you’d be better off finding an office that has better hours (they exist) and potentially being ready to work on smaller projects that can allow reduced time investment. May sound monotonous, but you will get a work life balance in return.

Just saw this upload documents option which was not there before. The consultancy through which I'm applying informed me that my HR round will be conducted tomorrow.

Researches have shown that we should just invest in sp500 index fund and how in the long run you can’t beat the market. Having my portfolio grown by 125% in 2 years by investing in 15 individual stocks I’m not sure how true that is. Am I missing something???

Hi Designers,
Been working as an Assistant Technician for 3 years (2 years excluding pandemic) pay is £21k now £22 adjusted for inflation. I will be completing my Part 1 in architecture but also have a degree in Technology, should I find a different company after graduation or take roles offering £30-45k as an Architectural Technologist/Technician.


I just finished my Masters at UT Arlington. I’ve been working for this firm for almost 3 years in uptown Dallas. I technically don’t have a title, obviously because I’m not license. I mainly do a lot of renderings and postproduction work along with some digital graphics for a lot of projects. Is it too soon to ask for a pay raise? Or how do I come about that?

I don’t want to be greedy but it’s so expensive out here… Thank you 🌈
