Our Annual Holiday Party is organized in partnership with the College of Architecture and Design to celebrate the holidays and hosts faculty, staff, and alumni for a social evening together. 

Career Fair

About The Event

Our Career Fair is held annually during the Spring at the Hines College of Architecture and Design and includes a calendar of professional development events from resume prep to portfolio reviews and interview skills, culminating in our Film Fair.

We invite firms of all sizes and focuses who are interested in hiring, reviewing potential applicants, or increasing their firm’s profile with students in the college.

We benefit current students and recent graduates by preparing them for and connecting them with job opportunities in Houston and beyond, drawing on our experience as professionals and connections to local industries.
