Rather than reinvent the wheel, we have compiled the following general resources and links to existing job search websites. We encourage you to forward us any additional links or resources that you feel may be of benefit to others. Finally, this section also includes a variety of articles with advice for writing resumes, portfolios, preparing for interviews, looking for international work, etc.

Another potentially helpful resource is the library, either the local public library or your school's library; more than the library, your best friend is a reference librarian. Both can help you research firms, locate critical information for your job search, and direct you to resources that you may now know existed.
Finally, pick up a copy of Architecture, Architectural Record, or Metropolis magazine, or some other design publications that appeal to you, and read them cover to cover. Editorials. Letters. Ads. Articles. Cut lines under pictures. Everything. Each time you do this, you will inevitably come up with a list of interesting, dynamic, firms or firm principals to contact about job opportunities. If a job seeker reads the 3 most recent issues cover to cover as we've suggested, we'd be surprised if they didn't have a very good "hit list" of firms to contact. And it's a great door opener to say, "I read your letter to the editor and was in complete agreement with the point you made. You're the kind of person I'd like as a mentor."
