Internship & Entry Level Positions

Syracuse University uses a centralized career services platform, Handshake, to post employment opportunities and events for students and recent graduates (0-5 years).

Note: During summers and breaks, students may choose to work in paid internships to develop professional skills and earn hours for the Architectural eXperience Program (AXP). Most states require completion of AXP and the national Architecture Registration Exam before awarding state licensure.
