They changed the security setting i realized. I cannot see the discussion page unless I’m logged in to facebook. It used to be that you could still read it without being logged in and only see first names.August 17, 2011 at 5:25 pm #161444
Ironically, it looks like Clarb decided to take down their discussion page on the LARE changes….
Maybe all the complaints were creating too much negative publicity.July 27, 2011 at 1:07 am #161458
Its funny that we graduated together what 5, 6 years ago? and here we are in the exact same position with the LARE regarding tests yet to take.
Regarding CLARB, I have tried contacting Rebecca Moden. To put it bluntly, she could care less what people’s issues with the transition are. You might think about posting on the CLARB discussion board (though everyone is getting stonewalled there as well).
I’m probably going to contact the LATC here in California to see if they will listen.July 20, 2011 at 4:29 am #161480
Personally I don’t think Clarb is out to get anyone. However if you choose to invest in registration then your passing scores should not be erased….otherwise its not much of an investment in my opinion.
Hopefully Clarb will listen to the flaws that have been outlined regarding the transition and make adjustments. I’m glad you posted it here to draw people’s attention to the problem.
Also I didn’t see where they will look into individual’s situations. All I saw was “CLARB staff is also ready to assist candidates through the transition process and to help them develop a plan for completing the exams and obtaining initial licensure prior to the transition. Please don’t hesitate to contact CLARB.“July 20, 2011 at 2:00 am #161486
I think its a raw deal if anyone loses credits from this transition. I’ve passed C and felt really good about E this summer. I haven’t taken D yet (I was taking my time doing one test at a time). I would hope I’ll pass this fall, but you never know until its finished.
I think it would be absolutely disgusting if I lost credits I had earned and paid for. I haven’t complained about Clarb or the LARE thus far in my career, but like I said this transition could turn into a raw deal for some.July 19, 2011 at 3:36 am #161531
I’ve used CorelDraw for about 2 years. I never really saw it as an inferior production to illustrator, I almost prefer it.July 19, 2011 at 3:33 am #161496
As someone who started the process about a year ago, I question the one year transition. Thats only 2 possible exam dates.
I guess I better take D this fall no matter what, so I don’t have to retake previously passed exams.February 12, 2011 at 6:04 am #164996
I’d go for the best buy personally (not the store). It looks like sub 1 TB is all about the same and 1-2TB are good buys. Anything higher and your paying extra to be at the top of the technology curve.
Here is a good link to get an idea of best pricing (it updates daily).February 1, 2011 at 2:51 am #165363

Just to add to the whole 90 seconds thing, you don’t need to show every project you’ve ever worked on in your first contact. Just pick a few that shows your best work and fits in with the realm of work of your target. So you don’t need to spend 50 USD on a mailer thats 40 pages long, cut it down.
If you do end up sending links, you could also tailor your site (if you wanted) to each firm by creating subdomains. You would need a host that allows that as your current site, itself, is a subdomain of carbonmade at the moment. Basically you would do something like this: If your applying to X and Y firm and X is more ecological restoration and Y is more master planning then you might have two versions of your site catering to each, say ec.nickmitchell.com for company X and ma.nickmitchell.com for company Y. Then you put a tracker on each site which you can then confirm if they actually visited it or not. If you are applying to one geographical area and you hand out only one link, it can be difficult to track who is visiting because all the IP addresses will be from the same general area. But if you know you sent ec.nickmitchell.com to only firm X and you get a hit from that geographical area you can be more confident that they looked at it.January 29, 2011 at 3:51 am #165373
Websites have their place. They’ve helped me. Just don’t make it your core tool. For instance, when I applied to a position this summer, I put my website on CD and then stuck it in my booklet. That circumnavigates all the issues really. There is no load time and they can view it when they feel like it. A nice CD design that meshes with the hardcopy may entice them to look further.
I definitely feel they are a plus if well designed, but they do not replace the almighty hard copy and solid print design.January 20, 2011 at 7:35 am #165555
I just wanted to say that your print design work looks really great!December 4, 2010 at 7:18 am #166585
Our program also required that an internship be completed. Wasn’t there a few who didn’t get their diplomas until they had worked out of school for a few months? (They went to Italy and had trouble getting an internship in the summer before their 5th year)
Makes me wonder how the students are doing these days on that requirementAugust 20, 2010 at 5:30 pm #168700
How familiar are you with InDesign? Once you learn most of the tricks, you will find that you can use Photoshop seamlessly with InDesign. For instance if you need to tweak a photo just make the adjustments in PS and then update the link in InDesign.
In terms of resolution that can be changed on the fly quickly in the export PDF settings. So leave everything at 300 (or if you are sending to a proper printing press later, 1200) and then just tweak the PDF export settings depending on your needs.July 25, 2010 at 7:46 pm #168532
We basically have a limited number of symbols that only delineate plant size. We then use a 6 letter code for the plant that is tied back to the excel master sheet. When I need to count, I just type in FIND in CAD and put the code in which brings up each instance of that plant.
When all the quantities are done the spreadsheet is pasted into paper space.
