RESUMES & SAMPLE PAGES
Graduating Students Resume Folder
Resumes and sample pages are voluntarily posted here in January by graduating students. Dropbox shared folders are updated in January.
Class of 2019 includes BArch, MArch, and MS candidates graduating December 2018, May 2019, and August 2019. You are welcome to email or call the student using the contact information on the resume.
Handshake is a superb platform for identifying students seeking employment. In the “Relationships” tab in the left margin, click on “Search Students” and select filters, such as:
- School: Syracuse University
- Primary College: School of Architecture
- Keyword: your choice (city, software, etc.)
Note: “Seniors” refer to both 4th and 5th year students.
Employers are invited to visit campus every spring to participate in the Architect Interview Day. An Industry Panel Discussion is held in Slocum Hall the evening preceding Architect Interview Day. Interviews take place in February or March so that firms may invite students for second interviews during the Syracuse Spring Break, March 9-17. There are no fees for the Architect Interview Day.
Graduating students and summer intern candidates from all three degree programs, (MS, MArch, BArch) apply for on-campus positions through Handshake, sharing their resume, cover page, sample work pages, and a link to their on-line portfolio. Firms select students they wish to interview and in turn, students select a time slot in the Handshake schedule.
Off-Campus and Remote Interviews
If a visit to our campus is not possible this year, you are welcome to contact Handshake applicants directly and invite them to your firm over spring break. Please be upfront and clear with the student regarding travel and accommodation reimbursement.
An alternative option is to conduct remote/Skype interviews.
