A+D Career Management Group Event May 6th!

Don't miss this opportunity...

Rising unemployment rates in the architecture and design industries has prompted CareerConnection’s Architecture+Interior Design Group to take action by hosting the 2nd Professional Showcase on Thursday, May 6, 2010, from 6:00pm to 8:30pm, at the International on Turtle Creek, in the heart of the downtown design district.A current estimate of the unemployment rate among DFW architecture and design professionals is a staggering 48%. The Architecture + Interior Design Professional Showcase will provide an opportunity for under-employed and “pre-employed” individuals seeking careers in these fields to acquire some one-on-one time with HIRING FIRMS and other professionals in their chosen field. Hosting showrooms will feature prominent industry leaders and new product lines.Persons interested in attending the event will participate in a “meet and greet” with top DFW architecture and interior design firms and a resume review booth will be open for interested jobseekers! “Our industry continues to see a very slow recovery, but we remain optimistic that the latter part of 2010 will see more building and development thus prompting firms to require additional staff,” said Mechele Rittenberry, member of the Leadership Committee of the A+D Professional Showcase event “The May 6th Professional Showcase marks our second initiative to promote and assist Architects and Design Professionals with their job search.” For more information on CareerConnection and the A+D Career Management Group, please visit or contact Lisa Miller, Executive Director, at (214) 739-7153 and Mechele Rittenberry at (469) 556.4913). CareerConnection is a nonprofit organization hosted by Preston Hollow Presbyterian Church.
