Architect Interview Questions

"When interviewing for a position as an architect, you may be asked about your internship experience, proficiency with computer-aided design (CAD) programs, knowledge of civil and mechanical engineering, and personal design preferences. A potential employer's top concern will be with your ability to produce aesthetically pleasing and structurally sound designs that fit within budget constraints. All architects are required to receive a degree accredited by the National Architecture Accrediting Board (NAAB) and complete the Intern Development Program (IDP)."
