    • Marco Sosa
      Marco Sosa 2 months ago +2

      Fear Kratos I think you already know the answer to that question. Hahaha. Try to have other sources of income, as in investments, businesses (check out shopify, at least it’s a start with very little money) or set up your own studio (it is not as complicated as they picture it here, well except for the fact that you do need some years of experience and take the ARE). Begin small and then keep growing. I work for a big firm, hence, it’s very corporate/bureaucratic and the work culture it’s just not in sync with mine (I prefer small studios and European haha)

    For #7, isn't pay discrimination illegal? Why don't they just take the company to court? Or do female architects work less hours than male?

    • Uday Jatav
      Uday Jatav 2 months ago

      It's because most females does not takes needed responsiblity because most of them also have to handle their homes and children .... So major responsiblity of buildings is taken by male architects.

      @zach busman Ok thank you

    • zach busman
      zach busman 2 months ago +1

      Nazeer they aren't discriminated against. This field is "dominated" more by men than women. This is simply because women tent to want to persure other careers. It's just preference. An example would be women dominate the veterinarian field.
      So going back to why they make less, usually (not all the time) women feel less comfortable to ask for things like pay when all of their colleagues are male dominated. Other factors can be considered like less hours like you say if they take parental leave or time off yet usually we are paid salary and not commission. That's at all the firms I've been to. But companies offer the same starting salaries to men and women, it just depends how much either negotiate after they start :)

    As an architect, it depends. It's better to be an architect of you enjoy designing and creating spaces for the public. If you want more money, it's better to be a doctor or engineer.

      Hello again, I wanted to ask you about becoming an architect. I've just graduated two months ago in Architecture and I know that I'm halfway through the journey.Is it best to get experience then Masters or vice versa? Also, can architecture students create drafts as a side job until they achieve their license?

    Architecture is the best choice to make since it open many doors to other field that can make architecture more engaging any enjoyable. Such fields would be photography, writing business, construction, and filming . There's many more openings but for me, I don't regret deciding on this career and can't wait to be apart of the great architects!

    "MIllennials are changing how Architecture"

    Goes on to describe the mindset of literally every Architect I've met, no matter if they're 70 or 20.

    When are we gong to stop acting like Millennials are special

    • Matthew Jackson
      Matthew Jackson 2 months ago

      I agree. Does any one group or category of people really affect the overall structure and workings of a society? Perhaps in a monolithic society but not in very pluralistic society.

    • zach busman
      zach busman 2 months ago +1

      Raymond Biskner as a millenial architect, it's not about millenials being special, it's about how the world is changing from technology and improvements. It just happens that millenials are at that starting off age where people associate them with change. This will happen in another 20 years where the world will be changing again and people will start saying the same thing about Gen Z. And so on and so fourth.
