What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?
Architect (but not Landscape or Naval) in Aspen:
"Adequate Salary Compensation."
Always know your worth and ask to be adequately compensated. What you know as far as skills doesn't necessarily mean everyone knows or has those skills.

And above all, do what makes you happy and jazzed to be alive!
Architect (but not Landscape or Naval) in Knoxville:
"Long Road Ahead."
This career requires you to start out doing things that school didn't prepare you for, namely drafting at a computer most every day for years. This is likely not why you chose architecture. Understand that this is a price you must pay to advance in the industry. Find good mentors, people that are 10 or more years ahead of you that can help you navigate your career.
Architect (but not Landscape or Naval) in Boston:

If you can do something other than architecture, do it. The profession is not very accommodating to having a family. Finding a firm that will support that goal is challenging.
Architect (but not Landscape or Naval) in New Haven:
"For love not money."
Architecture is a good profession if you want to make some kind of difference in the built environment, but don't expect to get rich (or even moderately wealthy) doing it. Also don't expect a ton of job security. It is the kind of profession you stay in because you love the work, not the money. That said, some firms are a lot better than others, so research potential employers carefully in advance.
