How hard is it to find a job in architecture after you finish studying architecture in college?

I just started high school and I'm wondering if I study architecture in college, how hard is it going to be to get a job with just a bachelors degree. I like architecture because I like the idea of people living in something that you have made. I've wanted to be an architect since jr high school. For example, how many months will it take me to find a job? If it's too hard, maybe I would choose a minor that might give me a different career I could get a job in. architecture architect

If you are passionate about architecture, go for it! The job market in architecture, like in many fields, goes up and down, and there's no way of knowing now what the job market might be like when you graduate from college. That's true about architecture just as it is true about other fields as well. Architecture is a wonderful field - creative, hands-on, allowing you to work with teams of people solving fascinating problems. Don't hesitate.


One word of guidance regarding architecture school - to become an architect usually requires that you have a degree from an accredited program. For many, this means going to college and then going on to a graduate degree program in architecture (for a Masters degree). For others, it means attending a 5-year undergraduate program (rather than the traditional 4-year path) that is accredited (meaning that you do not need a separate grad degree). There are pros and cons to both approaches. As you get closer to applying to college, ask lots of questions about the typical "career path" of graduates from the programs that you investigate. And best wishes!
