During the course of his career as a construction project manager, Regard Yakou has worked alongside a number of talented architects to bring projects to life. The discipline takes an enormous amount of skill and talent, which can often dissuade people who are unsure about what paths to take in their careers from pursuing it. However, there are many reasons why you may consider becoming an architect, including all of the below.
Working as an architect requires you to think creatively in order to provide solutions that will satisfy your clients. Architects face new challenges on a near-daily basis, which means they rarely find themselves in the position where their work is becoming a chore. The job constantly evolves, which means they get to learn about new technologies and how to apply them to their work.
Talented architects have a wide range of career opportunities available to them and can often elect to work as part of larger firms or to strike out on their own and take full control of their careers. This is an attractive prospect to many, plus the various sub-skills that you may learn from operating your own firm can help with future career endeavors.
Perhaps the biggest reason for why architects choose their careers is that their work produces tangible results that can be seen, sometimes by millions of people. This is a very rewarding, even euphoric, feeling that few other professions can emulate.
