Reason #1: A „Captive Audience‟ in Need:(Undergraduate Architects Seeking an Exit Strategy)“A once-thriving profession, one that requires considerable education and work ethic,and which has traditionally served a wide range of functions…is in trouble. Accordingto the U.S. Department of Labor, employment at architectural firms nationwidedropped from 224,500 to 184,600 (18%) between July and November (4 months) of2009, and the numbers have kept falling.”„The Architecture Meltdown‟ ,Salon.com / February 4, 2012Among recent college grads, architecture majors have the highest unemploymentrate at 13.9%.„Hard Times‟, Georgetown Center on Education and the Workforce, January 4, 2012

“The unemployment rate for recent graduates was highest in architecture, at 13.9percent, probably at least partly because of the housing market collapse. Evenarchitecture majors who went on to receive graduate degrees, which usuallysafeguard workers from unemployment, are doing poorly in the job market. With ajobless rate of 7.7 percent, architecture majors who hold graduate degrees are stillmore likely to be unemployed than newly minted college grads who studied journalism(!).”„Want a Job?
