2 weeks ago, alumni on the Building Futures programme joined Architects from the award-winning practice Haworth Tompkins Architects to learn more about how to improve job applications. The workshop focussed on cover letters, CVs and portfolios and comprised of top tips including what not to do, what content to include and techniques for a more effective style and layout. Alumni had the opportunity to show their CVs and portfolios and receive feedback on how to enhance the content and design.
From their valuable advice, we have put together a CV, Cover letter and portfolio checklist that you can download here; this can be used as a guide to ensure that you’re doing everything possible to make your application as strong as possible when applying for an architectural role.
We have 4 more skills workshops lined up with Haworth Tompkins. If you are interested in attending a workshop, please follow the links below to book your place and contact firstname.lastname@example.org for the Building Futures Eventbrite password.
