Networking as an Architecture Student

Networking is everything as an architecture student. It’s not what you know – but WHO you know.

In this episode, architecture student Christopher Johnson talks through his experiences with local networking events, his participation mentoring students, his involvement with the Canadian Architecture Student Association and various other groups and boards.

Chris and I also talk about life as a student at a brand-new university in Canada, what it’s like studying, our best tips and advice for other students and overall just have a good chat about becoming better students.

I’d say one thing that you could do. . . actually go up to the speaker and say

“hi my name is . . .  and I really appreciate what you’ve been doing. If you’re ever looking for someone to be on your design team I would so appreciate your consideration.”


Students don’t realize a lot of times when architects get these cover letters and resumes and all these emails  . . .


It’s just so professional.

You need to let loose a little bit and that’s what some of these events do for you.
