what are the placements for jee main paper 2 b arch/b plan

Aditi Amrendra Student Expert 24th Oct, 2019

See, there are no placements for architecture students. If there some then that in rare cases. But you will surely get a jib because demands of B.arch graduates is high these days.You will have to apply for leading architectural firms during your last semesters, samples of your work along with your resume and pursue at the places you want to work at. If they will be interested in you then you will get a call following with and interview. One more thing you can do is that you can do a full year internship in last year with a design office/ architect or consultancy. After passing out, try to gain some experience in an architectural firm or consultancy in initial years and then you will grow gradually in terms of jibs as well as salary.

I hope this helps.
