As a future architect graduate, one of the most difficult times is to find a place were we can get a internship, but that is not the most difficult as we though. The most difficult is to find a job where you can do what you love. In my case y really like to redesign and create the same staff with innovation, also made renderings and everyhting related to 3D modeling. In my area of architecture this has the name of fabrication, and this is one of the last technology that every single office is asking for, specially in US.
Most of the companies in this area are looking for student with a very high knowledge in 3D printers, scanners and CMC machines.
T he first important point that the companies are looking for it is the education that you have in the area that you are trying to apply for. the years of experiences that you have on it and for last but no less important the portfolio or examples of a previews work that the applicant had.
One of the most common program that most of the companies as for is Rhino 5, 3DMax or Maya. These three programs help any student or even a professional to find a better job. Also in this kind of ads most of then they want that the person that apply, have some experience in the past and not only the knowledge of it.
Other important part is that the applicant must have the ability of expression, and be persuasive, for two reason; be able to work in groups , be ably to take others ideas but the most important part is that he or she must be able to convince the customer that the product that we do is 100 percent good and we have the wright company to do the work.
Also the companies are looking for people, who can have the knowledge of other soft wares for example and one of the most important in the market because its the one that every simgle company use It is AutoCad, now int his era also they start asking for Revit architecture, google skechues, and many others programs that they are most use for modeling in 3D
Now as i mentioned before the experience, it is a must in many cases, expecialy in teh cases of 3D printing or CMC machines, because if something go wrong with the equipment the company is losing money and jobs, every equipment that for more tiny and unimportant that it look it is a lot of money to repair of get a new one
Other important part about this companies is that the want you to be able to work any day, with different schedules, sometime even holidays, but as i sad before if you love what you do you will never work, in my case its like playing a video game
