What I have learned:
This week I am realizing how important the mentoring process is for aspiring architects. This is not a career field that you leave school and start right away. You continue to learn and work towards being an experienced architect for years and years. It takes more than just school to really be able to understand the process of building a structure. Thats why finding the right internship or job with a strong mentor can make or break your experience in this field. Luckily, I can tell that SMHa has a strong focus on teaching the next generation of architects and people take time out of their days everyday to help me and explain things to me.
