建筑学专业找工作的最佳时机
When Is the Best Time to Look for an Architecture Job?

由专筑网李韧,邢子编译

本文最初发表于“The Architect's Guide”。

废话不多说,那么建筑学专业找工作的最佳时机是…

当你已经有工作的时候。这叫做“被动求职”。

也许你暂时并不需要求职,但是仍然可以了解一二。在之前的文章《建筑学专业找工作时需要注意的25件事》之中,我说到了建筑学专业找工作的一些注意事项,因此本次我们需要了解的是被动求职的策略。


在网上投简历

如果你还没有这么做,那么请尽快开始。许多建筑事务所在拿下一个大项目时,会需要大量员工的参与。因此如果你正处于两个项目的空闲阶段,那么这是一个好机会。

另外,记得常常浏览诸如LinkedIn等网站,这样许多人力主管或建筑事务所负责人会更有机会注意到你。

这些网站的逻辑是,当你在网站中发表简历时,网站便会自动通知雇主,这样雇主就会来看你的简历。在这个年代,人们的社交方式不再是以往的传统模式,在网站上发表自己的简历则是一种全新的方式。


雇主意愿清单

在此之前,你可以做一些调查,充分了解当地建筑事务所,以及你的心之所向。

并且标注你的兴趣所在,是公司的项目还是工作模式?亦或是企业文化?另外充分了解公司对员工的技能与经验的要求,以及公司的所需是否恰好是你的短板?

这是求职成功的好方法。

划重点,你的经验和专业技能才能为你的工作保驾护航。


你的社交网络

我常常说道,你的社交网络在求职中也非常重要。你的朋友圈中,也许就存在着你的伯乐。

主动了解联系方式,最好能与对方公司的人力资源管理者见面沟通。


信息访谈

这是一种小众的策略,但却非常有效。信息访谈不仅仅只是一场采访,而是一场会面,然后由你来选择沟通话题。

例如

“Anderson先生,我通过Chris V.收到了你的邮件,我希望这周能够与你见面沟通,大约占用您15分钟的宝贵时间。我对大型商业项目很感兴趣。另外,我做过一些小规模住宅项目,我希望您能够给我一些建议。感谢您的帮助!”

如果会面顺利的话,接下来你就可以直接这样问,“您可以看一下我的简历吗?”如果运气好的话,对方能够对你的简历进行一些点评,然后你就能发现自己其中的不足。

于是你要充分利用这些时间与资源,快速地成长同时学习新技能,例如获得LEED Accredited Professional资格认证。

So I won't make you wait for the answer. The best time to look for an architecture job is...
...when you already have a job. This is called a "passive job search."
While you are not job hunting per se, you are keeping your net in the water just in case a juicy offer swims by. I covered the subject of architecture job offers in more detail in a previous post, 25 Things To Consider When Choosing An Architecture Job Offer, but here are a few techniques for a passive job search.

Put Your Resume Online
If you haven't already, post your architecture resume online. Many architecture firms can suddenly need staff if they win a big project. While jumping ship for one project should be done with caution, it is good to have your name in the hat.
Have your most up-to-date experience on a site like LinkedIn. This allows your qualifications and experience to be easily searched by recruiters or architects looking to hire.
It used to mean that if you posted your resume online it told your employer that you are looking for a job. Now things have changed and creating a LinkedIn profile is seen as just another way of communication, as with any other social network.

Employer Wish List
Do some research to see who is hiring in your area and keep a list of the architecture firms that you would be interested in.
Note why you are interested. Is it the projects they work on, the work-life balance, or the culture? What skills and experience are they looking for? Is there something that keeps showing up that you don't have? Revit experience? LEED AP?
This is a good way to make sure you're keeping up on what makes you employable.
Remember, your experience and knowledge is your best source of job security.

Your Network
As I am always saying, your network is an essential part of the job search process. Reach out to anyone in your network who may know someone that worked at one of the architecture firms on your list.
Get contact information to begin the process of meeting with the decision makers in the office.

Informational Interviews
This is a rarely used technique but it is very effective. An informational interview is less of an interview and more of just a meeting you set up to discuss a topic of your choosing.
For example:
“Mr. Anderson, I received your email from Chris V. I was hoping I could have 15 minutes of your time this week to meet with me. I am interesting in working on large scale commercial projects. Since I mainly have small scale residential experience, I was hoping you might be able to provide me with some advice. I would greatly appreciate your time.”
If the meeting goes well you could end with, "would you mind looking at my resume?" This can be a great way to find out if you have any resume gaps or potential issues for the role you will be pursuing.
You can use this time while employed to then build that project experience or acquire a new skill, such as becoming a LEED Accredited Professional.

进一步跟进

在会面之后,别忘了进一步跟进。

无论结果如何,每一个与你沟通过的人你都要积极地跟进了解。

“十分感谢您百忙之中为我提出的建议,这些想法对我非常受用。现在,我就职于一家大型商业建筑事务所。”

运气好的话,这些建议能够帮助你进一步扩大社交圈,并且提升你的专业技能。

建筑学的发展不可预测。被动求职能够为你的工作提供有力的保障,帮助你在未来更好地应对各种突发状况。

Follow Up
As with all interviews, don't forget to follow up.
Whatever the immediate outcome of your search, continue to follow up with everyone in your network.
“I wanted to say thank you for taking the time to speak with me. I have taken your advice and I am now starting at a new office specializing in large scale commercial architecture.”
Hopefully, these tips will help you build your network and keep your skills current.
Architecture is a very unpredictable profession. A passive employment search can provide you with a job security network to help you survive any recession.
