As an Architecture graduate there is a good probability that you will get a decent job in your core profession. In some cases people may opt to choose a different career. It's quite interesting to see how people make progress in this career. There are different possibilities where you will be after five years. We will analyze them one by one.

1. If you have joined the private sector after your graduation, you will be at somewhat senior level, or probably at middle management. That will depend on your performance, skills and expertise. You would have got a good salary increase and would be exploring new avenues.

2. If you have joined government sector after your graduation, your promotion and growth will be mostly fixed. You would get promotions at fixed points of time. The increase in salary will also be mostly fixed, doesn't vary according to the performance. Talking about the role, you will have more of administerial roles.

3. If you went for a master degree or Ph.D. during these five years, you can either - join the corporate world at higher position, join government sector at higher position, go on to the research and academics. More avenues will be open for you. But you will be in the core Architect field.

4. If you did your MBA during these five years, you can get a jump in your career progression and get higher position. After doing MBA, you will not be restricted to Architectural field. In fact you can go in to almost any industry based on your learning and skills developed during MBA.

Hi,


Greeting's for the day!!!

Architects are the real creators of amazing building and structures. Skyscrapers in metro cities would not have been possible without them.

But it is the right credentials in academics which matters the most in architecture.

Architects can work with construction companies wherein they are asked to serve as a designer. Initially, an architect is expected to understand specific requirements of clients and strike aright balance between aesthetics and practicality. Additionally, an architect with skills can help clients by his ideas in terms of balancing the requirements of appearance, financial budget and time frame. Some architects even work independently and earn their livelihood through consultancy fees which entirely depends upon the skills and profile as well as work experience.
