In addition, architects are responsible for making changes in an existing building?s design and providing advice for restoration or conservation projects. While the majority of architects focus on buildings, there are other types of architect jobs that are concerned with other structures, such as the jobs of those working as landscape or naval architects.

Assessment of costs and the practicality of projects along with the alignment of purpose and aesthetics in a building are the duties of an architect. In order to obtain an architect job, one must meet several requirements. A professional degree in architecture is required, and an architect must pass an exam in order to become licensed. The architect must complete a degree in architecture through a school approved by the National Architectural Accrediting Board. It is also necessary for one to complete at least three years of on-the-job training in order to gain more experience in the field. In addition to these requirements, those applying for an architect job should be creative, possess superb drawing and visualizing skills, and be able to successfully use computer-aided design programs.
