Hi,


Greeting's for the day!!!

Architects are the real creators of amazing buildings and structures. Skyscrapers in metro cities would not have been possible without them. While capitalism furthers the growth and prosperity of human race, tall buildings with beautiful designs and glory show the grandeur. The rebuilding of 'Twin Towers' collapsed in 9/11 incident and other towers and structures shows the real dint of human talent and excellence, creativity and vision.


Required Personal / Professional Skills:
A Person requires sound Interpersonal and Communications skills and immense physical stamina to get into the profession of architecture. He is expected to work on desk as well as on the construction site. Excellent memory and sound concentration level, flexibility, patience, team spirit, responsibility and accountability,etc are some common personality traits which are essential for professional success in architecture and design. But it is the right credentials in academics which matters the most in architecture.


Job Prospects
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 a right 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 an 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 a work experience.

Most of the jobs in architecture come up in government organizations. Builders, Architecture Firms, Consultants, etc also hire architects.

Architects working independently have ample scope in terms of earning. However, the inherent hazard with independent practice is that the professional undergoes lots of work as he alone has to plan details of sizes, specification and estimates of the cost of the structure. Specialization works well for better prospects in architecture as it is a matter of requirement.


Pay Packet:
Starting salary of an architect can be in the range of Rs. 20K to Rs. 30K. The growth is registered after 2+ years. Candidates with work experience of more than 5 years can get salary in the range of Rs. 50K to Rs. 60K. The demand is expected to increase in couple of years as India is going to expand FDI in real estate and it will attract huge money from foreign companies.
