    What work have you done? Just wondering in case we have more work…if we get a couple more jobs we are going to be looking for another person. Should add…we are design/build…so landscaping.

    My first job after I got my bachelors degree was with a design/build firm in Reno, actually. Then I worked for a design firm in Boise for a little while before I went back to college.

    Does anyone here know someone I could contact at Mithun in Seattle?

    HR or someone specific?  I think I’ve got the info somewhere.  They’re a fun office from what I gather, and busy.

    Either one, I guess. I could just send an e-mail to their generic address, but I might get a better response from a real person.
    I was looking at their website, and they do seem like a fun office.

    That sounds strange for me, in Italy it is not used to ask to visit a firm if you are not looking for a job!

    I guess the title of this discussion is wrong. This is more like the preliminary stage of looking for a job. I want to get an idea of what different firms in Seattle and Portland are like. It takes the pressure off them if they know I don’t expect them to hand me a job right away, and hopefully they will remember me if they do want to hire someone.

    Brian,

    I’d like to go to Seattle on Friday, July 8 or Monday, July 11. Could I visit NBBJ then?
