On July 27th, WIA was proud to co-host a Resume and Portfolio Workshop with FXWomen, FXCollaborative’s Employee Resource Group focusing on the promotion of women in the architectural profession. Shannon Rodriguez, Human Resources Director of FXCollaborative, and Sara Ngan, Co-Chair of FXWomen, provided invaluable advice on resume writing, portfolio design, and the art of the cover letter; Marcella Yee, Co-Chair of FXWomen moderated the discussion. The information was presented in an approachable way, providing clear do’s and don’ts for all tools in the job search process. In today’s environment, where women and minority professions have been greatly affected by impacts of COVID on the profession, the presentation was a valuable asset to help craft the best way forward in this challenging time for our members seeking new employment.
