This is probably the best place to start: http://www.riai.ie/?id=5763

There is also a site run by the British Institute: http://www.careersinarchitecture.net/

Both are definitely worth a look.

ya this is somethin im sorta worried about...because the course is 5 years long and its a very "narrow" degree(i mean your gonna be an architect, u cant change carreer like u can with different degrees) its a big step to take...are most architects happy with their jobs? is it rewarding? is it what you expected it to be?

For me personnally, when somebody asks me what ill do when I leave college, its nice to be able to tell them.
I feel sorry for the 1000s of people who are in their final year of college and still aren't sure what or where they will be working in a years time.
