I'm currently investigating potential areas to relocate that have a more resonable cost of living than Chicago and am very interested in Charlotte. I've visited a few times and like the city and the surrounding area but would like to know more about the current state for landscape architects. I've look into many company websites and like what I see but, considering the current economy, have to wonder how realalistic my time frame should be for applying for jobs? Can you give me any insight to the job market, the types of work that are moving forward, and any resources you might think of? Anything would be greatly appreciated.

hey thanks, Will! currently in Blacksburg for another week working on printing my portfolio, using Burchard + the screen printing room, and making some hand-bound copies of my thesis book. Really just beginning the whole job-hunting process, but I'm hoping if I even find something that it could be in Richmond... but ideally NYC some day. Right now I'm trying to get some mini-portfolio/mailers made to send out, any tips? how did you handle applications, did you use a CD, printed stuff, or website, etc?

how's everything going at LandDesign? hope you're doing well in Charlotte!

Hi Will!
Thanks for the compliment. It’s been fantastic living and working over here. The projects are completely different and the lifestyle too. It’s an adorable vacation/retirement town compared to hip and urban Portland Oregon; they each have their pluses and minuses. I will say that an office is an office is an office and deadlines still happen and landscape architects are by far some of the coolest people in I know. But then maybe I am biased

Hi William; thanks for the nice note. You've got some beautiful work here. Regarding my style, my favorite comment was from Bill Thompson, the editor of Landscape Architecture, who once told someone, "I like Jim's work because it looks like the kind of thing anyone with a modicum of skill could emulate." That was a compliment, I think...in any event, I like to kid Bill about it any chance I get. Regarding workshops, I don't do them on a regular basis because of firm workload, but i did put together a 6-hour Saturday workshop for Mississippi State a few months ago. It was a blast for me, they 50 or so attendees enjoyed it and I still stay in touch with several of the students.

Hey Will! Thanks - they were an attempt to get my foot in the door of an advertising firm. I landed an interview at Abbotswood Design Group in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho today so it looks like I'm flying out there to talk to them. Fingers crossed! Check out there website and let me know what you think. I think it looks like a good match for my interests.... plus I love their rendering style. Where did you find this site and why didn't we do this years ago?? How are things coming with your job hubt? Keep in touch! http://www.abbotswooddg.com/

Wow. How did you position yourself to be able to do such interesting work so early on? I have been interning while in school since I started and I'm a bit fearful that I may be doing the same (production) work post graduation. Any inside info you can share with regard to how to put yourself in this position would be great...shott me a private message if you feel the need..Thanks..

This is so strange to me - something to admire yet also raises a LOT of questions about public safety, who did the real scale drawings and structural brainwork, etc.? Video is long, portion of interest starts at 2:05 on this "eco-artist"…Continue
