What makes a good Architecture CV?
Stephen Drew

Hello? Hi.

Jack Moran

Hi guys. It looks like we all live.

Stephen Drew

Oh, wow. This is

Jack Moran

cool. Isn't it? I like this is a nice spin on things. So for everyone who is joining us, thank you for joining us today. My name is Jack Moran. I'm joined by Stephen Drew. We both have worked in architectural recruitment. Steven also has an interesting history as a Part Two Architect

so Steven, what I thought I'd do for the benefit of everyone watching you are my boss, normally, I thought that we flip it around today and I ask you some questions so that you can point out the key information for graduates when it comes to building the perfect CV and portfolio, the do's and don'ts, the things that you've seen over the years that you don't want to see anymore, or things that you feel are left out, that they want to, that you want to see further.

How does that

Stephen Drew

sound to you? Sounds good to me. I was just double checking. Everyone can hear us because I've got a little mute button. So sure. All right, we can go for it. So I'm Stephen Drew. I used to be a part, two architectural assistant. I trained up in the industry and then I worked at an AJ100 practice called EPR architects around the time that I was a Part One, it was the 2009 recession.

And I had to find a job during that time when there was absolutely there, there wasn't many jobs around. And so it was a, quite a tough time. Since then I worked in industry for few more years before doing what I do now, which is I focus on getting people, jobs and architectural recruitment, matching architectural practices with people in a practical.

Excellent.

And I think the benefit the graduates will have here is that, speaking to yourself, you've done both sides, so you've been the architect, but now you've gone over to the recruiter side, but you've transferred that knowledge of the market and the more technical details.
