Architects design buildings. To do so they must apply different types of knowledge that includes math and physics. They must also observe that the designed project complies with federal laws in regard to the security and stability of the building. Architects do not only focus on the external look of the building, they must select the appropriate materials for its construction as well. Also, they have to know how plumbing and electricity would work inside the building. Hence, they are constantly designing countless sketches. It's a job that takes up a lot of time and persuasion. It's, overall, a job where architects may have to work under pressure to meet deadlines and to draw something that is according to the customers' tastes. The average salary of an architect is around $70,000 a year.

Don't forget to bring a portfolio that includes some drawing projects along with your architect resume.
