We are in the process of compiling views of some architects on what factors affect shortlisting or rejection of interns and fresh architecture graduates. In this post, we discuss the processes at India’s leading architectural firm, Biome Environmental Solutions which focusses on architecture, sustainability, ecology and water.
You can see some of the works by biome published HERE.
Sharath Nayak, the senior architect from Biome, replied to the following questions. We are sure, this will immensely help the students looking for job opportunities in Biome.
- Be personal with the covering letter. It is reassuring for us to know that the candidate has researched and understood our work and to understand why this person wants to work with us.
- Do not mass mail. Do select the firms that you like and apply.
- If you have special skills, do demonstrate them. We recently had a person apply to us and demonstrate his experiences to us by a story book of his sketches. It caught our eye. But- this still also has to demonstrate the skills for the job.
