Talk about frustrating! We enter college and see an industry thats crying out for us. Now in my final year its all changed and I'm wondering will I get a job!!??
I've seen a lot of people in architecture let go this year... seems like there might not be room for any new people or am i being too pessimistic?
Still it could be worse... it could be the 80's.

People are leaving rural areas for urban centres and always have. What do they need? houses and everything that a typical city requires. The only limiting factor is your minds imagination, I do believe.

All of this despite the fact that i have not yet qualified, I've hardly have a clue of the Aussie regs, and my limitation of three months per employer (as dictated by the standard working visa to Oz).
So as I see it, only an unwillingness to travell, and tempoarily a lack of language are limitations on a great career.

But if anything else we need architects here to stop thoughtless people building ugly buildings in beautiful places! And to cull the use of uPVC windows!

As I've read that Sketchy Ed' message, I want to add some my words to this thread ))
I'm an architect, and I'm from Russia. It, for any people, is some factor of risk, factor of unexpectedness, of danger life...
So, when I start my six-years university architectural course, it was the time of collapse, ruin all of Soviet system' stability and calmness. All of us thought that it couldn't any reason to do the architectural work in future, 'cause it wouldn't any future at all, here - civil war might be started anymonth then time.
All that six years I'd thinking that that any practice couldn't be available here, and an architectural world is anywhere out of Russia.
The Default Crisis in Russia in August of 1998 was at that time when I just graduated. All the life in Russia was in chaos and any people even took consultings from Pinochet how to organize country' system - with democracy or with totality - anyway. At that time all the structure of architectural market was collapsed and fresh graduates thought that they are out of profession for a long time, maybe they needed to chahge thier career. But already in 2000-2001 situation gone into stability - and now profession needs architects!..
So, if you want to talk about future: future is a kind of sun behind the mountains; it rises at day and then there is a sunset at night, and anyone could propose that sun might not to rise tomorrow )) - who knows, may be it is some kind of temporal pessimism?

lintol is also running a mentor initiative in partnership with the local Chapters to connect students with practices so that academic training can be supplemented by practical exposure.

Now the dutch, they know how to engender a real sense of "enjoyable architecture". Though I accept they are probably more full of shit than any other bunch of bs spouting architects.
