Jobs for Architects Is In Demand

THE Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) is encouraging graduating high-school students to consider taking architecture if that is their inclination and if they wish to easily land on a job after college.
An architect is a hard-to-fill occupation identified in the DOLE report, Project JobsFit: The DOLE 2020 Vision.
Project JobsFit: The DOLE 2020 Vision, is a nationwide research study aimed at identifying local and global industries that would drive employment growth, including the corresponding skills requirements, for the next 10 years. It was conducted by the DOLE through its Bureau of Local Employment (BLE).
Based on the findings and recommendations of the study, the BLE developed the 101 Career Guides, a body of relevant and updated information on the basic education requirements of a job, skills competencies, salary, prospect for career advancement and employment opportunities. The results are meant to be disseminated and shared mainly to students to help them make wise career decisions.
“We, at the department, would like to prepare our students by providing them with information that would help them make better choices for their future,” said Labor and Employment Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz of the 101 Career Guides.
The 101 Career Guides describes an architect as a licensed professional trained in the art and science of building design and who provides a wide variety of professional services to individuals and organizations planning a construction project.
An architect is required to have a professional degree in architecture and, prior to taking a licensure examination, a period of practical training, and internship.
However, although graduate education beyond the professional degree is not essential for practicing architecture, it is normally required for research, teaching and other specialized areas of architectural work.
