Roundtable Chats: Professions Other Than Architect (w/ Monograph's Growth Team)

If you get your architecture degree and get certified, that means your only choice is to design buildings, right? Wrong. Yet, many people don’t realize that there are several paths to choose from until they stumble into them in internships or early-career jobs. Within the industry there are many roles that have an impact on a project that have nothing to do with design, from project management to business development to marketing. And there are several other industries where an architecture background makes you uniquely qualified. In this Roundtable session, the Monograph Growth Team discusses the variety of choices available and how they figured out that design was only one of them.
