During these two days, employers from across the country representing the fields of Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and Urban and Regional Planning will come to the University of Illinois campus to showcase their firms, build relationships with the University, and interview potential candidates for both summer and full-time employment. Career XPO is hosted by the School of Architecture and organized through the Undergraduate Office, Lee W. Waldrep, Assistant Director; Carl G Lewis, Advisor; Rhonda Frank, Secretary.
Students are able to 'interview' firms—to ask questions about architecture and its future. For juniors, seniors and graduate students this is a great opportunity to meet and interview the representatives— many of whom are the decision-makers for hiring. You will also want to sell yourself to them! For freshman and sophomores, this is an exceptional time to find out more about architecture from practitioners, laying the groundwork for future employment.
