I’m a recent grad. From IIT in Chicago. I’m originally from Florida, I had wanted to stay in Chicago but couldn’t find a job and have made the move back home to my parents in Florida. At this point I have my degree but I’m working a job in a completely unrelated field and can’t say I enjoy it at all. I’ve come to the point of applying anywhere and everywhere. After graduating I had high hopes of staying close to design, working with an office that familiar with the IDP process, a place I can really grow with etc etc….
I’m wondering what the outlook is for reviewing a resume from someone that would have to relocate 2000+ miles, a completely different scene. Say something like Florida to Washington State.
I’ve had one interview while living in Chicago for a job in Miami, after a couple emails back and forth with the office we decided to set up an interview. It wasn’t until after I spent $319 on a flight down, a great interview, and patiently waiting for a 2nd interview that the office decided that knowing Spanish was important(this was a topic brought up in the previous email chatter, at the time it wasn’t important at all). It was at my own expense to fly down and take the chance that I wouldn’t get the job, but somehow I feel this office flaked on its responsibility.

I came across your blog while searching for "average pay for summer architecture intern" and I have to say it has a ton of fantastic information for architecture students. Thanks for taking the time for putting this information out there, as it is valuable experience that can't be found anywhere else on the web.
I'm finishing up my 3rd year of a 5-year professional degree at [school name]. My main question for you and one that I hope you can address on your blog is what to expect as far as pay for a summer architecture internship as a student still in school. It's a question that many employers will ask before they hire an intern and I can never gage an appropriate amount for my experience level. The internship after my first year of schooling paid me $10/hr, which was pretty generous and the internship after my second year was a monthly stipend of $300/month for a part-time position. Do you have any suggestions or advice?
