Columbus Architecture Jobs Overview

Architects are mavens who observe open spaces and dream about how to fill them ingeniously. They specialize in designing a variety of physical buildings for multiple purposes—from individual homes and soaring skyscrapers to inventive museum complexes and sprawling shopping centers. Consulting with clients, planning a new project, creating technical drawings, and overseeing buildouts at construction sites are all part of the duties associated with architecture jobs.

There is a particular demand for architects who are knowledgeable about sustainable design and LEED-certified projects. The green building market is predicted to be one of the fastest-growing industries worldwide, and the U.S. market alone is sized at $81 billion. Architects are also needed for green-oriented renovations such as for houses, schools, and hospitals.

About Working in Columbus, Ohio

Columbus is the six-degrees-of-separation state. Or, make that 600 miles. Nearly half the residents of the U.S. live within a 600-mile radius of Columbus. A little closer to home, some famous "Columbusites" include Food Network star Guy Fieri, Olympic gymnast Simone Biles, golfer Jack Nicklaus, and authors R.L. Stine and James Thurber. But the personality with one of the best Columbus jobs has to be Brutus, the mascot of The Ohio State Buckeyes. And, yes, the university is the only one in the U.S. that has the word "The" in its official name. It also has the only football team that plays in a shoe—a horseshoe-shaped stadium, that is.

Columbus is an affordable place to live, with a lower-than-average cost of living. You can find Columbus jobs in unique neighborhoods like German Village, which has brick roads and charming, restored houses from the mid-1800s. You can also check out Short North, an arts district with galleries and boutiques, and Easton, an entertainment and retail mecca with more than 300 shops and restaurants. Just outside of Columbus, you can find jobs in popular suburbs that include Dublin, Grove City, and Westerville.

Update Your Columbus Architecture Resume

Most architects still use their hand-drawing skills—whether they're brainstorming during the conceptual stage of a project or making sketches while at a building site or when scoping out land for a new house—so make sure to highlight that on your resume. At the same time, architecture jobs also use computer-aided architectural design (CAAD) and building information modeling (BIM) software, so you should underscore your knowledge of those too.

If you're feeling blocked in any way, Monster has great advice on how to optimize a resume for creatives, along with a ton of resume writing tips, to get you going. And if you've already worked on some designs, put together a professional portfolio, which you can also include in your applications.

And don't forget to embrace the art of the cover letter so that you share your story from the get-go. We have lots of guidance on how to write cover letters to get you started.
