Today's resume come from C.K., who's graduating in June but has a job lined up right after graduation--rock on! That's very good news, especially in this economy. I presume that this resume got C.K. a job, so it's entirely possible that all my notes and comments are moot, but that's never stopped me from opening my mouth before.

A pair of architects are working on a presentation to an architecture convention about ways of working with and describing the experiences of Architectural Interns. We have been operating with several assumptions, but we hope to have accurate information based on responses from current interns.
Are you interested in sharing your experience in an architectural internship? Follow this link to an architectural internship survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/X6GFCMX (Interns are defined as those working in the field who are not yet licensed architects.)
We very much appreciate your sincere responses. No specific or individual information will be shared instead we will process a summary of the survey results to guide the presentation. At the end, you can enter your e-mail address for a drawing to win an $80.00 gift certificate to a national bookstore.
The survey should take approximately 12 minutes.
I asked them about that second to last paragraph, and what they mean about "no specific or individual information will be shared" is that no one will be able to tell from the survey that So-and-So from XYZ Design Firm said that their present internship experience is a dumpster fire tumbling over a cliff. Therefore, please feel free to answer the questions honestly. And please forward the survey on to all of your friends in your firm and in other firms and even to friends that may have been laid off. The more responses these architects get, the better their data will be.

- must not do work from which the company will directly benefit
- must not displace a regular employee
- must learn beneficial skills that would be similar to what's taught in a vocational school
- must understand that the unpaid internship does not guarantee a job
