Free Staff Sharing feature on AIA Career Center
Posted Friday, May 22

In addition to hosting a variety of job opportunities, the AIA Career Center has launched a platform for staff sharing to help architects and design professionals during this period of uncertainty. This is a free service offered in the hope of helping some firms avoid layoffs and others to keep projects moving forward.

Firms have different focuses, within different sectors, and in different geographic areas, that result in different impacts from COVID-19. The hope is that this service can bridge the gap to help our industry get to the other side of this pandemic and keep as many people employed as possible.

The belief is that some firms have more work than they can handle and are reluctant to hire in the current economic environment, while other firms have seen a decreased workload, but they want to retain their staff. By allowing these two firms to connect on a jobs platform and exchange talent via staff sharing, they can mitigate the economic downturn and minimize the human toll by keeping our community of architects and designers properly employed with their health insurance and benefits.
