I completely agree with you Phil. As someone who turned to architecture as a second career, I know first hand the difficulties of starting off in the architecture field in this economic climate. I fully agree that a recent graduate with digital technical skills will begin to be more appealing than an architect with 5 to 10 years of experience and only know CAD. I do think that firms are beginning to understand that themselves. The ones that will be successful however, are the ones that are able to embrace new thinking and process workflows. The most important part of that thought process is also the desire to strive for excellence through constant improvement and change. That's not something that comes easy to many people, particularly architects which I haven't yet figured out why. I think that "newbies", such as myself look at the design and construction process with a more holistic approach and will spread that throughout the industry. It will take time, but I believe that this new mindset along with the use of BIM tools will erode away the traditional view of an architects role. If a student cannot find a good forward thinking architecture firm, then there are many other participants in the construction process that are willing to pay quite well for a problem solver with good technical skills. I wish everyone out there looking for work all the best!!
