Good News for Intern Architects

 
Is the industry finall bouncing back?  News regarding interns is positive.

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) and National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) conducted an Internship and Career Survey that revealed that there is a steady rise in employment for intern architects, along with a general sense of optimism in the future of employment prospects for the architecture profession.  This is an interesting development as news from the industry during recent economic times can be less than promising.  Could this be a sign of an industry bounceback?

Interested parties can check out the full report here, but here are some quick highlights -

• 78% of respondents reported being employed in professional architecture work – an 8% increase from 2010

• 6% of respondents reported that they are unemployed – an 11% decrease from 2010

• 70% of respondents said that they would remain in the architecture profession after having been laid off

• 62% of interns indicate it taking three to five years to complete the Intern Development Program (IDP)

• 53% of interns were able to complete all 17 IDP experience area requirements at one firm

• 40% of interns are taking the Architecture Registration Examination concurrent with IDP

There were more than 10,000 responses to the survey that was executed in 2012 by The Rickinson Group, an independent third-party marketing research supplier.
