Ever question what software abilities and licensure/accreditation are needed to obtain a job at the very top 50 Architecture firms on the planet? Our study has put together everything...
We interviewed 928 job posts at the very top 50 architecture firms, according to, and put together the program needs and also the licensure/accreditation needs listed for every job. Then we sorted them by average, after which through the level of experience needed, from -3, 4-10 and 11-20+.
The outcomes have been in the infographic below:
To sum up, for software abilities, over 70% of architecture jobs require Revit abilities, and also over 50% still require AutoCAD abilities. The #3 software skill needed is Sketchup. We have to admit that people were disappointed (although not surprised) to determine that Grasshopper was just needed for severalPercent from the jobs. And traditional-fashioned hands-drawing was just clearly known as in 4% of those jobs.
Software skill needs fell predictably along experience lines, with lower experience needing more software abilities. The exceptions were in AutoCAD &lifier Illustrator in which the distinction between the needs of -three years &lifier 11-20 experience was over 20%. The following biggest difference was at Revit at 14%.
For licensure/accreditation i was very surprised to determine that just 10% of jobs needed licensure, but 25% needed LEED Accreditation. The needs for licensure/accreditation fell predictably along experience lines, with lower experience needing less licensure/accreditation.
Here is a listing from the businesses that were interviewed. We required the very best 25 Architecture firms and also the top 25 Architecture + Engineering firms for the survey.
This survey is clearly skewed to bigger firms. We are curious about growing this survey to more compact firms, and would like recommendations for how to locate a great sample of more compact architecture firms- please incorperate your ideas within the comments below.
