- If you would like assistance with Handshake, please visit the Handshake Help Center or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We are happy to help you.
- A note about your applicant pool. International students comprise approximately 40% of the School of Architecture student body. We encourage firms to expand their talent pool by considering all candidates. International students are eligible for work authorization in the US for up to 3 years by using Curricular Practical Training (CPT), or Optional Practical Training (OPT) and do not require visa sponsorship. Current students (internships): Working with staff from Syracuse University, students submit required paperwork, apply for a 1 credit internship (CPT only), and pay associated fees. Graduates (full time): A 24-month OPT Extension is available to architecture students who are employed by an employer that participates in the E-Verify program. In the job post details, selecting “yes” (work authorization section) will open a larger pool of talent.
LinkedIN ( 5+ years experience)
For experienced position postings, the School of Architecture utilizes LinkedIn.
Please email the job posting to email@example.com, with details including job description, qualifications and skill sets, required work authorization (US citizen, CPT/OPT), application documents (typically resume, sample pages, cover letter, and link to portfolio), deadline, and contact information. Space is limited to ~1,300 characters. Once received, we will post the position on the the Syracuse Architecture Career Services page.
Employers are invited to visit campus anytime to interview students. Typically, peak recruiting occurs during the spring semester. Interviews take place in February or March so that firms may invite students for second interviews during the Syracuse Spring Break (mid March). Our main graduation is in May, but a significant number of students graduate in December, particularly from our graduate programs.
Virtual Architecture Interview Days: Our on-campus interview program will be going virtual this year. Employers will have the opportunity to host virtual interviews for both internships and full-time positions. Schedules will be created through Handshake with interviews occurring through a virtual venue of the employers choice.
Note: Architect Interview Days will be scheduled for March 8 - 19, 2021 and will be conducted virtually. Interview days can also be scheduled before and after these dates to accommodate the hiring needs of our employer partners. There are no recruiting fees and registration instructions will be posted in early December.
Please note: Due to the pandemic, all on-campus visits are currently on hold. Please reach out to Career Services at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about alternate recruiting options.
If a visit to our campus is not possible this year, please reach out to Career Services at email@example.com to discuss customized recruiting options.
